The Explosive Collision Of A Stag Show And Small Town Morality

From the back:

For The Tired Business Man
And there were plenty in the town,, humdrum, ordinary… Who would suspect that they played around? No wonder they were tired! It was the last place in the world anyone would expect to run a stag show, too. The whole town buzzed about it, and about the girls who performed for the male population. What they did involved everybody from the top banker to the lowly librarian, exposing a seething mass of sex and sin

Men couldn’t keep their eyes on the menu, nor their thoughts on food when Carrie leaned over and innocently asked, “Would you like something else?”

Nudists Die Naked


Shell Scott didn’t mind the killers or con-men. What bothered him was that fantastic nudist camp

One of the greatest titles ever. This looks like Robert Maguire’s work, but I can’t be certain. [Update: Lynn Maguire confirmed it is his work]

A High-Priced Dame — A Guy With A Gun — An Explosive Novel Of Big-City Vice

From the back:

When she sang, it was different from anything Nicky Palermo had ever heard, a throaty sound that was part invitation and part threat, a sound which promised all the things which the shoddy other women in Nicky’s life had never been able to offer…

This was a woman — beautiful, sophisticated, glamorous — and too good for Nicky Palermo…

But Nicky was going to have her, whatever she thought. The cold, hard .38 in his pocket would take care of any minor differences of opinion…
