Lust Shop by John Dexter

Passion Wrecks Were Sin-fixed In This....

Imported Sin!
Sports cars! Pete was a wiz at making them purr like a kitten...Even whizzier with their owners if they happen to be delightful vixens like Chris, the blond who wants Pete to preform a special service for her. Or like  Rhoda, with her elusive husband and lonely house. Like Angel Child who takes Pete to his first orgy and revels with him in all the shame and degradation. Like Thelma, who unwittingly preforms so very close...until the police close in with sirens and damnation screaming loudly....

Toll For The Brave by Jack Higgins

Toll For The Brave

Ellis Jackson woke up hugging a twelve-bore shotgun. In the next room, his mistress and his best friend lay naked on the bed, their heads blown to pulp. Back in England at last, Ellis Jackson had finally cracked. Active combat, a Viet Cong prison camp and the callous treachery of his lover and interrogator, Madam Ny, had taken their toll. Ellis Jackson was out of his mind. Or was he?
Maybe it would all have been easier to take if he really had been mad

Surviving a helicopter crash, Ellis Jackson is taken prisoner in Vietnam and placed in a special camp designed for brainwashing. His beautiful captor, Madame Ny, seduces him into confusion, but fellow prisoner Brigadier General James Maxwell St. Clair, provides him his only link to sanity and his only link to escape. What happens 20 years later brings him full circle.

Date With A Dead Man by Brett Halliday

Mike Shayne
The Private Eye With  Top Form
Dives In A Case Of Mysteriously Missing Persons
And A Couple Of Million Bucks

The Nifty Nympho
She was rich but not rich enough, married but hungry for lovers, and would happily liquefy herself into oblivion at the pop of a cork. Mike Shayne was the solution to all her problems if she mixed her business and pleasure tight. A simple concoction of bribery and bed. But Shayne wouldn't buy it. All he wanted were some fast answers to some easy questions, not the least important of which was why a not so nice girl like that had made a date with a dead man.
