RARA-AVIS: A couple books and a couple questions

Sort of taking a break from the genre right now -- actually, I've been reading James Jones's THIN RED LINE. But I'm still buying, and I got these two at the local Goodwill:

TONY ROME/MIAMI MAYHEM by Marvin Albert. This is the movie tie-in version -- boasts a cool picture of an exceptionally lazy-looking Sinatra and a bitchy Jill St. John. Any comments about the series? And how's the movie?

DOLLS ARE DEADLY by Brett Halliday. A Mike Shayne mystery. Weren't many of these ghosted? Was this one? In general, what are the good Shayne books? I've read another one of these, though I'll be damned if I can remember the title. I remember I thought it good, but not exceptional. Any I should stay away from?
