Charles Willeford: High Priest of California (UK 2014)
From the Publisher:
Russell Haxby is a ruthless used-car salesman obsessed with manipulating and cavorting with married women. In this classic or hard-boiled fiction, Willeford crafts a wry, sardonic tale of hypocrisy, intrigue and lust set in San Francisco in the early fifties, in which every sentence masks innuendo and every detail hides a clue.
