  • You Find Him, I'll Fix Him By James Hadley Chase ()
    When your boss asks you to 'look after' his daughter during her stay in Rome, and when that daughter has a reputation for being fast, dangerous and beautiful, you play it cool - if you're smart. Ed Dawson, newspaper man, was smarter than most. But even he, in this instance, found it impossible to keep his fingers out of temptation's way. And from the moment he arrived in Sorrento to spend an illicit weekend with the girl in her secluded villa by the Mediterranean, Dawson was heading for trouble...

    Helen Chalmers had the kind of figure which could make a man do almost anything she wanted. So when she asked Ed Dawson to spend a month alone with her in a secluded Italian villa, he found himself accepting, even though it was against his better judgement.

    His judgement told him he was crazy, that involvement, with Helen would mean trouble as her father, apart from being one of the richest and most influential men in the world, was also his employer. He wouldn't take too kindly to his daughter being compromised by one of his employees. What Ed's judgement didn't tell him was that upon his arrival at the villa he would find Helen lying dead at the bottom of a cliff, and a strange man searching through the rooms with a flash light...

  • The Flesh Of The Orchid by James Hadley Chase ()
    James Hadley Chase (Rene Brabazon Raymond) was born in London in 1906 and started his career as a bookseller. With the aid of a dictionary of American slang and reference books on the American underworld he wrote his first novel, NO ORCHIDS FOR MISS BLANDISH, over six weekends. The book achieved remarkable popularity and became one of the best-sold books of the decade. FLESH OF THE ORCHID is a wild, thrill-ride of a sequel to NO ORCHIDS. Taking up the story 22 years later, the central figure is once again a Blandish girl, but Carol Blandish is not the helpless victim that her mother was. Indeed, she is a volatile blend of simmering sexuality, strained innocence and hair-trigger cruelty. Her explosive outbursts of savage violence make her a force to be reckoned with. Escaping from a mental institute during a raging storm, and definitely off her meds, Carol Blandish is soon pursued by a seedy cast of characters who all want a piece of the Blandish fortune. The novel bristles with crazy plot twists, edge-of-the-seat suspense and intriguing low-life's who mix it up for an immensely enjoyable read.
