I have another title by Herries, an Ace pb titled Death Has 2 Faces, which I haven't read (& probably won't, after your report, Paul) but it does have one of those deliriously sleazy covers that Ace were so good at: a sleazy looking blonde with a glass in her hand, sitting next to a bed & looking at some character "off-camera". Casually draped over a bed head is a gun in a holster & various articles from a policeman's uniform. I don't know about the writing inside but the cover is practically a nice little noir vignette on its own.
