Westlake, Donald E.  
Dancing Aztecs (alternate title: A New York Dance)
A South American republic plans to capitalize on its national symbol, a gold statue of a dancing Aztec priest, by having a sculptor make copies for sale abroad. The sculptor replaces the original with a fake, and ships the real one to New York City for an illicit sale to a museum. The statues are packed in five crates. Asked to pick up crate 'E' at the airport, Jerry Manelli is confused by his client's Spanish accent and takes crate 'A' instead. The statue disappears into the city, leading him on a baffling chase, which - if he comes up with the wrong Aztec - could cost him his life.

The Twenty-Year Death
1931: The body found in the gutter in France led the police inspector to the dead man's beautiful daughter - and to her hot-tempered American husband. 1941: A hardboiled private eye, hired to keep a movie studio's leading lady happy, uncovers the truth behind the brutal slaying of a Hollywood starlet. 1951: A desperate man pursuing his last chance at redemption finds himself with blood on his hands and the police on his trail. Three separate novels, each penned in the style of a different giant of the mystery genre; taken together, they tell the story of an author whose life is shattered when violence and tragedy consume the people closest to him.
