Death Of Anger


A man’s revolt from his sterile marriage to a beautiful lesbian

From the back:

“The events of our wedding night blew my marriage apart,” said Hugh Canning. Then, many arid nights later:
“That night I took her again. It was a fight, wrestling and gasping in the darkness, and, as if she knew how serious it was, as if the time to be ladylike was some weeks gone by, she did not scream once… Next morning she did not get out of bed. She didn’t get out of bed the next day either, or the day after or for the next twelve years.”

A Touch of Death


It Began as a Burglary… And Ended As A Nightmare!

The burglary sounded like an easy score—but Lee Scarborough didn’t count on having to face off against a woman as ruthless as Madelon Butler.

When Lee Scarborough came upon the brunette sunbathing topless in her back yard, getting involved in a heist was the last thing on his mind. But somehow that’s where he found himself—sneaking through a stranger’s house, on the hunt for $120,000 in embezzled bank funds. It looked like an easy score. But one thing stood between him and the money: the beautiful and deadly Madelon Butler.

Easy Death


‘Tis the season…

It takes guts and good luck to pull off an armored car robbery, and Walter and Eddie have both. But getting the money and getting away with it are two different things, especially with a blizzard coming down, the cops in hot pursuit, and a double-crossing gambler and a sadistic park ranger threatening to turn this white Christmas blood red…

It Would Take More Than Luck To Find The Vatican’s Missing Millions—In The Jungles Of Brazil…

Once an art smuggler, now a respectable art dealer, Ovid Wiley awoke to find his former partner stabbed to death on his gallery floor. That was strange enough—but when a CIA agent showed up to spring him from NYPD custody, things got a lot stranger. Now the CIA is offering to clear up the murder charge, but only in return for a favor: They want Ovid to fly to Vatican City and trace the trail of a renegade priest who has gone missing with millions in church funds. What’s the connection? The priest’s lover, a woman Ovid knew in his smuggling days…

The Speed Set


Fast and furious excitement… frenzied and feverish passions!

From the back:

By day, they played a game of danger, flirting with death on every hairpin turn… by night, they played a game of passion, seeking new thrills with each new partner. There wasn’t anything they wouldn’t try, anything they wouldn’t do… as long as it provided the wild, hot excitement they so recklessly pursued.

Had Nature Run Amuck?

From the back:

Tall was a hunter-explorer, venturing off the tiny island fortress of his tribe and making his way through wilderness inhabited only by giant insects ten times the size of a man. Loosely protected by chitin-armor, and striking with a spear doubly-barbed with spider venom, Tall fought to find a new home for his people.
But as he roamed he became more and more aware that mankind was a stranger in this insect world, that there were no other creatures remotely like men. Then where had his people come from?
As he followed the trail of the almost-mythical Ten who had founded his tribe, Tall found more and more mysteries—and death in more forms than he had ever imagined.
