Hard to get and impossible to get rid of.
Above, a cover from Beacon Books for Robert Turner's Woman Chaser, 1962. Turner was a prolific author of hard boiled fiction. Writing as Turner, as well as Eric Calhoun, K.K. Klein, Parker Lee, Lisa Roberts, et al, he produced titles such as She Devil, Cheater, The Night Is for Screaming, and The Girl in the Cop's Pocket. In this one a serial cheater gets involved with much a younger woman, and as his wife descends into alcoholism, he discovers his lover is way too uncaring and wild to handle. With cover art by Jack Thurston.

It’s not their fault—it’s a jean-etic disorder.
In pulp and sleaze fiction there are many types of bad women—vamps, golddiggers, black widows, you name it—but women who wear jeans, or even jean shorts, are destined for a special brand of trouble. Some of these women are already corrupt while others are merely at the gateway, but they all end up in the same place—Calamity City, daddy-o.
