That should be "Troy Conway", a pseudonym of Michael Avallone, an
enormously productive writer in various genres.

I recently bought a copy of _The Cunning Linguist,_ which I had to
buy based on the title alone. It's a wonderfully enjoyable "adult"
novel--No. 20 in the "Coxeman" series--featuring a James Bondesque
hero, and a terrific period cover with a Roger Moore type kissing
two microskirted, go-go-booted hotties who hold large phallic
handguns. 1970 for this one; _Wham! Bam!_ was an earlier effort in
this series.
