Kim (Prologue Books) Kindle Edition
Tarino’s yacht parties were wild - featuring every kind of vice. But before this one was over, Kim had tamed the leopard - and was a full-fledged member of a strange and savage jungle . . .
"Bob Colby was more than just a 'one-hit wonder.' He wrote several other respected novels in the 1950s and '60s, including The Deadly Desire and The Secret of the Second Door (both Gold Medal, 1959) and dozens of short stories for Alfred Hitchcock and Mike Shayne... Do me a favor: hunt down one of his novels and give it a try." -- Peter Enfantino
"He had a journalist's eye for his times. This was especially true in the novels he set in Hollywood. [The Captain Must Die] is his masterpiece. You will not be disappointed." -- Ed Gorman--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Markos produced a key and we entered an enormous living room done lavishly in Chinese modern and practically ringed with floor-to-ceiling glass. In one corner of the room there was even an ebony grand piano.
“Penthouse,” Markos announced. “Nothing to beat it in the whole g-d- town. You like it?”
“It’s gorgeous,” I said, and it was.
“Bill and a half a day,” said Markos. “C’mon, I’ll show you the layout.”
And, speaking of penthouse, this book, while never explicit, is more suggestive than most (from the paperback era).. which I kind of liked:
"... It’s only that Howie was the first man I ever knew in that way and I … I suddenly realized that he might be the last and I got a little panicky. April is only two months off and after I’m married [...] it will be too late to wake up to how much I might have missed. Because afterwards I’ll never, never have another affair. I wouldn’t do that to Howie. Or myself.”
“You wouldn’t?” I gave her the wide-eyed stare with open mouth. Kidding her because she had been speaking with such pouting, little-girl seriousness.
“No, I wouldn’t,” she said.
“Well, be calm, honey. April isn’t here yet.”
“I know,” she said. And with that she moved into my arms and fastened herself against me.
The first and last third are narrated by studly PI Rod Striker, the middle is narrated by his ex-policewoman, judo-trained assistant, Myra Blaine, who goes undercover as a b-girl to get evidence on the gangster who is bothering young Kim. I was dreading the worst for this section, but it was handled pretty well- a sort of space age Perils of Pauline.
Above average sexy, and not too serious.
