Booty for a Babe
"Get over to the Hotel Imperial. Drive yourself over in that natty little Austin-Healy you acquired illegally in Ocean Beach!"
In Booty for a Babe, "unorthodox" LA cop Lieutenant Al Wheeler is sent to solve a murder at a science fiction convention. There he discovers a professor who wants to stop time by tricking the elusive Delfs, meets an intellectual gangster who wants to get his hands on the professor's latest invention, and is frustrated by the generously proportioned convention organiser who somehow manages to keep one step ahead of Al's wolfish designs!
Eve, It's Extortion
"Ask Wheeler," Commissioner Lavers said, "if he would like a nice blue uniform and a traffic detail!"
In Eve, It's Extortion, Al Wheeler is under pressure to crack a big case. Commissioner Lavers sends him to investigate the hit-and-run murder of a "no-good" lush called Henry Farnham. At least that's what Henry was according to his widow. She's a beautiful brunette who diligently looked after her husband, working hard and paying for everything ... including their hefty life insurance premiums. Is this a classic case of insurance fraud ... or something more sinister?
