A Carter Brown book. This series is one of the most successful and largest series of books the world has ever seen. The stories were not only printed but also turned into films, a TV series, comic books, radio plays and even a musical. The fact that the films were French, the TV series Japanese and the musical co-created with Richard O’Brien of The Rocky Horror Show fame, neatly demonstrates Carter Brown’s broad and universal appeal. This particular book states: "Three Dolls . . . and a Corpse. One is merry widow with anew lease on life when her husband expires; One is a luscious skip-tracer whose curves turn up in some unsavory joints; One is a gorgeous receptionist who snaps to attention when a big girdle manufacturer purrs. One-or all of them-know whether it is an accident or a murder that has converted a footloose husband into a rest-in-concrete corpse. And it's up to Al Wheeler, a devil with the dolls and a cop who bars no holds, to come up with an answer, fast!
