These books have been around for a while and I've been meaning to get copies, so I was pleased to see the three of them together the other day - grabbed them.  Covers are very evocative aren't they.

From the Blurb - Die A Little:

School teacher Lora King finds her quiet suburban life disrupted when her brother Bill, a junior investigator with the District Attorney's office, meets a woman by chance and quickly marries her.  (1950s Hollywood is the setting).

From the Blurb - Queenpin:

A young woman hired to keep the books at a down-at-heel nightclub is taken under the wing of the infamous Gloria Denton, a mob luminary who reigned during the Golden Era of Bugsy Siegel and Lucky Luciano.

From the Blurb - Bury me Deep:

In October 1931, a station agent found two large trunks abandoned in L.A.'s Union Station.  What he found inside ignited one of the most scandalous tabloid sensations of the decade.
