RARA-AVIS: Dagger of Flesh/The Shack Job

Wondered if anyone had any comments about a couple of 40-cent PBs I picked up at our annual Children's Hospital Book Market yesterday. Dagger of Flesh is a Gold Medal #k1425 by Richard S. Prather that isn't part of the Shell Scott series. The Schack Job is "an original X- rated Peter Chambers mystery" by Henry Kane. Clearly the previous owner didn't like it because he wrote "stupid, infantile" on the first page. That was enough to make me buy it. Pickings weren't a good as usual in the mystery and forty cent sections as the only other mysteries I bought were few John D. MacDonalds to try to upgrade my collection. But I'll be back later today. Also, I couldn't resist a Manor PBO titled Billy Lives for the colorful rock 'n roll cover and the blurb "music, sex, dope, booze - what a way to go." The author is Gary Brandner.
