Murder in March Madness Day #18

Today we are on the other side of the hump heading towards a nice finish with Murder In March Madness. Today is day number eighteen which brings up the title Murder In The Harem Club/Key Club by Carter Brown, published in 1962. 

Murder In The Harem Club/Key Club (1962)
Written by Alan G Yates (1922-1985)  

Extravagant Parties
Gorgeous Slave Girls &

 With extravagant parties beyond his wildest dream and gorgeous 'slave girls' prepared to carry out his every wish, Rick Holman should have been only too pleased to spend a thousand and one nights in the atmosphere of the Harem Club. But the set-up was shattered by a vicious gangster, the death of the girl no one would discuss, and the gun in Rick's hand.

Girls were Carter Stanton's stock and trade. He was the publisher of Sultan Magazine, a monthly extravaganza devoted to a spectacular display of the female form. He was the propietor of The Harem, a select key club that specialized in hostesses to suit very man's fancy. Girls were Stanton's beck and call. Life for him was one wild and wonderful party until the killer tried to crash the party.
