The Strangest Adventure You Will Ever Read

From the back:

I’m thirty-four. I’m a college professor. I was fired because a girl was found in my room. Honest, she was only taking a shower. She had a million dollars and she waved them under my nose — all this and the lady, too. But I wouldn’t be bought, so I got out pronto.
I found a job as bodyguard to a rich old refugee who was in deadly fear of being murdered. His young wife was a gal who would never let a man’s blood cool. Then his adopted daughter decided I was her meat, too. What a spot for one guy to be in. Envy me? Don’t. When the old man did get bumped off, who was the fall guy they tried to pin it on? Me, of course. What could I do? What would you have done? Let me know, won’t you?

From the back:

Her Body Was Blonde — Her Heart Black

Skin as tempting as hers, figured Lindsay Hayes, could get her anything she wanted — and she was right. The boys fell all over themselves to trade favors for her hot, delicious love. Soon she had prostituted herself to the top in the crazy world of rock ‘n roll! But on the way she acquired rivals like pretty Billy Mitchell, with the baby fat still on her. Like redheaded Vivian Blaine, who thrived on desire and dope. Each desperately needed Johnny McCoy, the wild young maestro . . . each fought for him with the secret weapon every girl uses best . . .

It looked like a picnic for Johnny and his harem of hep-kittens. Until Lindsay, drunk on rock ‘n roll, schemed to break his heart — and his golden horn!

This was her burning compulsion — to bestow rapture, and then pain!
She Gave Herself, But Not Her Soul!

There was nothing she wouldn’t do to sell — and nothing she wouldn’t sell!
A daring expose of how a girl can buy a career — and sell her soul!

Revenge Was His Passion — Girls His Prey
The Book That Dares To Tell The Truth About Sin For Sale!

This popular illustration was used on the cover of three different publications: Lust for Love (Intimate #16, 1952); then, altered to its present state, as Pound of Flesh (Intimate #45, 1952); and lastly, as Love Peddler (Beacon Books, #BB141, 1957).

It is amazing how much this painting was altered. In an age before Photoshop, that meant actually painting over it. Even the glass she is holding changes!
