Blackmailer by George Axelrod

From the Academy Award nominated screenwriter of Breakfast at Tiffany's andThe Manchurian Candidate comes a breathtaking story of murder and mischief…

It's the story of a big-game hunter, fisherman, fighter, visitor to Cuba, drunk, and Nobel Prize-winning author, recently deceased of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, whose final unpublished manuscript could fetch a mint…

It's the story of a short, balding man with a high-pitched voice and a vicious wit, whose cocktail parties are the talk of the town, especially when a beautiful woman dies at one of them…

It's the story of Hollywood’s sexiest starlet, who manages to conceal things even when she’s wearing nothing but a towel…

…and it’s the story of Dick Sherman, intrepid New York publisher, on the trail of the literary find of the century – and the killer who will stop at nothing to keep it from being found.

Strictly for the Boys by Harry Whittington
A gay divorcee stalks the cocktail jungle
Amy can’t help the way the boys look at her. It isn’t her fault. But Burt doesn’t see it that way. He is convinced that Amy is cheating on him and as her husband, he has a right to knock some sense into her. Burt doesn’t mean to hurt her, he just can’t control himself. So when Amy runs back to her mother, she expects a little sympathy. But Stella’s got problems of her own and no time for Amy’s change of heart. She lets her move back home but does everything she can to get Amy and Burt back together. Amy takes a new job, and still Burt follows her around, trying to find out who the new man in her life must be. And this time he’s right—this time there’s Terry, and a new chance at love. But for Burt, Amy belongs to him and him alone, and he will kill any man that gets in his way.
