No Law Against Angels There are only three things I indulge myself in: my hi-fi, my Austin-Healy and women!

In No Law Against Angels, unorthodox LA cop Lieutenant Al Wheeler investigates the death of two beautiful young girls with identical snake symbols tattooed on their shoulders. Al soon finds himself slugging it out with a big-time gangster and cracking down on the West Coast's most profitable racket - prostitution. Luscious dames and plug-happy thugs - the chase begins in a fashionable mansion ... but ends in fashionable mortuary!

Doll for the Big House She was a living doll and it took a grand a day to keep her that way. A grand ... and a Grand Jury!

In Doll for the Big House, Al Wheeler finds himself suspended from duty and transferred to the lowly Eighth Precinct. Commissioner Lavers cryptically tells Al to keep on working as a private citizen and finds himself helping a beautiful witness named Lois Hertz whose sister has disappeared. Missing Persons is policing 101 but Al soon realises the case is much bigger and that Lavers has really got him investigating corruption at the highest level ...

Alan Geoffrey Yates(aka Carter Brown) was a literary phenomenon. Born in England, Yates married and settled in Australia in 1948. He worked as a film technician, a salesman and in public relations for Qantas before taking up writing full-time. The incredible early success of his Carter Brown novellas in the 1950s meant that he was contracted to produce one short novel and two long novels each and every month. In reality, he was truly prolific with 322 published Carter Brown novels. Carter Brown was a huge international success with reportedly 120 million books in print, second only to The Bible in terms of the number of languages they were translated into. There was a comic book series, the `Carter Brown Murder Mystery Hour' on radio, three French films, a Japanese TV series, and a French literary award for `The most whiskies drunk in a single novel'. He was also rumoured to be one of John F. Kennedy's favourite authors. In the early 1980s, Yates and Richard O'Brien of The Rocky Horror Show fame wrote a musical of The Stripper, described in classic Carter Brown terminology as `the girl who says it all from the neck down'. Yates died in 1985 in Sydney. In 1997, he was posthumously awarded a Ned Kelly, Australia's leading literary award for crime writing, for his lifelong contribution to the art.
