A blazing and risqué paperback cover painting by Mort Engel for the Avon paperback, Death Of A Hooker by Henry Kane. Featured is the alluring albeit misguided Kiki Kalmer, adorned only in ostrich plums in man-eater mode, prior to her joining the ranks of the infamous dead blonde club. Title slug reads... Here's Peter Chambers, hip-deep in harlots, heroin and homicide! Painting is in a pristine state of conservation and modestly framed under glass, a copy of the Avon book accompanies the painting.
