Richard S. Prather's BODIES IN BEDLAM (1951). I think this is the one where some hot-blooded actress declares to Shell Scott she wants to "asterisk" him. Shell also winds up in front of the cameras in a most spectacular way. Great fun.

John Gregory Dunne's TRUE CONFESSIONS (1977). The Black Dahlia case. Recommended also for the 70s reading list.
