Death in the fifth position by Edgar Box ( Book )

Dashing P.R. man Peter Sargent is hired by a ballet company on the eve of a major upcoming performance. Handling the press seems to be no problem, but when a rising star in the company is killed during the performance--dropped from thirty feet above the stage, crashing to her death in a perfect fifth position--Sargent has a real case on his hands. As he ingratiates himself with the players behind the scenes (especially one lovely young ballerina), he finds that this seemingly graceful ballet company is performing their most dramatic acts behind the curtain. There are sharp rivalries, sordid affairs, and shady characters. Sargent, though, has no trouble staying on point and proving that the ballerina killer is no match for his keen eye and raffish charm
Death before bedtime by Edgar Box ( Book )
20 editions published between 1953 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dashing P.R. man Peter Sargeant is invited to the home of a venerable senator to help strategize his imminent run for president. On the night before he's to announce, though, the senator is murdered in his bed. No longer needed as a political publicist, Sargeant finds himself helping the police find the killer. He deftly navigates an eccentric cast of characters, all of whom are suspects: the rebellious daughter; the sycophantic aide; the grieving widow; and the power-hungry governor with his eye on the senator's job. Somehow, between charming the senator's daughter and glad-handling Washington's elite, Sargeant still manages to methodically put the pieces into place and sees that politics truly is a cutthroat business"--P. [4] of cover
