Depends what it was about "Everybody Had A Gun" that you enjoyed. If it was lines like "Her breasts were so full and firm and abundant that each of them might have been both of them" or "There was a lot of her already in the room before the rest of her got in" or "He was dead, all right. He had been shot, poisoned, stabbed and strangled," then I heartily recommend "Take A Murder Darling."
