House of Evil by John Trinian

House of Evil
by John Trinian
Pyramid 1962
Reprinted by Stark House Press, 2016

A conman starts a religious cult and begins to believe his own con.  Other con artists move in to steal his cash, and the stash of compromising films.  A b-movie actor is accidentally roped into the scene, and he's out to rescue a girl that the cult leader has a lecherous eye on.

Some tone issues with this one.  It threatens to get dark, then turns to goofball humor, and ends with the actor flopping around in a fishman costume.

Original paperback from AbeBooks
