From the back:
The Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Greece and Rome had returned to Earth—with all their awesome powers intact, and Earth was transformed almost overnight. War on any scale was outlawed, along with boom-and-bust economic cycles, and prudery—no change was more startling than the face of New York, where, for instance, the Empire State Building became the Tower of Zeus!
In this totally altered world, William Forrester was an acolyte of Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, and therefore a teacher, in this case of a totally altered history—and Maya Wilson, girl student, evidently had a totally altered way of grading in mind—but what else would a worshipper of Venus, Goddess of Love, have in mind?
This was just the first of the many Trials of Forrester, every bit as mighty and perilous as the Labors of Hercules. In love with Gerda Symes, like him a devotee of Athena, like him a frequenter of the great Temple of Pallas Athena (formerly known as the 42nd Street Library)—dedicated, in short, to the pleasures of the mind—Forrester was under the soft, compelling pressure of soft, compelling devotees of Venus, Bacchus and the like, and in need of all the strength that he and his Goddess, the beautiful and intellectual Athena, could muster to save him from the endless temptations of this new Earth.
And into this sensuous strife strode Temple Myrmidons—religious cops sworn to obey orders without question or hesitation—with a pickup order for William Forrester.
Where he was taken, what happened to him, the truly fantastic discoveries he made about himself and the Gods and Goddesses—here are the ingredients that make up this science fiction novel of suspense, intrigue, mystery and danger. For science fiction it is, with the super-natural making complete sense, and fun too, despite the Sword of Damocles hanging by a thread over Forrester’s head!
The Murder Of A Kept Woman

One Lover Too Many
Rose Klonec had had more lovers than she could count. She took them for all they had, then left them. Ralph Douglas was the exception. He broke off their affair himself. And he did it to become engaged to wealthy Magda Toller. But he was by no means free of Rose. When her dead body turned up in his country villa he found himself under suspicion of murder. Four deadly weapons lay near Rose: a pistol, a razor, a box of poison pills and a stiletto. Then Henri Bencolin, famous French sleuth, upset the case by proving the weapons were false and that Magda herself was the daughter of a street walker and a murderer. But Rose’s killer was not unmasked until the night of a weird card game at the Corpses’ Club — a game no person alive had ever played!
