CONTRABAND

"Cocaine ... Heroin. The stuff that makes killers and prostitutes out of men and women. Sometimes children, if they have money enough to buy it."

Reed Smith was a hard-boiled Federal Narcotics agent who had tangled with the toughest crooks and crimes, in his time. But when he was assigned to track down a gang of international dope smugglers, he met the most brutal killers of his career. Using respectable contacts and ravishing women, they engineered acts of unbelievable horror and violence in pursuit of their vile trade.

NO WINGS ON A COP

When Lieutenant John J. Shannon saw his old friend Captain Grady on a marble slab in the morgue, he knew it wasn't suicide and dishonesty that had put him there. "They framed me," Grady's dead eyes seemed to say, and Shannon believed it.

But no one else did. Acting Chief O'Meara called the case closed and ordered Shannon to leave it alone. Nick Lombardi, racketeer and political power, suggested that for his own good, Shannon should be "smart". And lovely Frances McGowan pleaded with him to quit because she loved his Irish hide.

Black Irishman that he was, Shannon was too mad and stubborn to quit and nearly paid with his life. Just when his luck appeared to run out, he met gorgeous Karen Kane, who gave him a new stake in the game. Then he had a surprise encounter with Chief Regan; and when he ran into a gun battle at the airport all the pieces of the whole crazy puzzle fell into place ....

WHAT PRICE MURDER
Begun by Cleve F. Adams, who died early in the writing process, and Robert Leslie Bellem, his close friend, finished the book.

Steve McCloud opened the door. The room had been carefully searched. Then he saw Kay Mercedes. She wore a vivid green dress. And she had a body that would make any man forget his good intentions. Catlike she moved toward him. "You still have my purse," she purred. "Did you read the letters?" McCloud caught the heady scent of Black Narcissus as her arms reached around his neck. "No," he said -- and made a mental note to read them as soon as possible. "If you're lying I'll be back," -- suddenly she was all tiger, ready to claw him -- "and this time with a gun..."
