Burns Bannion — blood brother to Shell Scott and Mike Hammer

From the back:

Burns Bannion is back – but things haven’t changed a bit. Private-eye by accident, he still keeps running into his two favorite pastimes – gorgeous girls and deadly killers…

The girls were all Bannion dreamed they would be, but the killers were bloodier than Bannion could have imagined. So he had to use an equally bloody weapon against them: KARATE: the ancient and terrible defensive art of the Japanese – in which the human hand can be as deadly as the sharpest axe – a bloody sport which makes Judo look like a kid’s game…
