Delilah Was Deadly (II) by Carter Brown

An Al Wheeler Mystery

 Police Lieutenant Al Wheeler is assigned to a case involving a murder of a guy strangled by a nylon girdle in a safe. Maybe the murderer wanted him there for safekeeping? Commissioner Lavers needs an unorthodox cop to solve this loony case. The idea was to assign the case to Wheeler to solve it, but three murders later Al would like to call the cops but he would look silly doing that. The only thing that made sense were the dames all over the place, at Al's place, at their place. But who wants to talk to a beautiful blonde, brunette, or redhead?
