Review:

Times have changed, and Mickey Spillane's tough-guy private eye, Mike Hammer, has changed with them. Well, sort of. Hammer confesses to his fondness for Wagner in this latest adventure and proposes to his long-time gal Friday, the voluptuous Velda. He even dines at Le Cirque, though thankfully he does not order quiche. Meanwhile, he is tracking down a missing $89 billion while dodging the mob, the Feds, the cops, and a shadowy set of very nasty villains. Spillane's fondness for hard-boiled imagery, and his devotion to Raymond Chandler's maxim "When in doubt, have a guy come through a door with a gun," have not wavered. Hammer hits the big time in this delightfully preposterous pulp fiction.

About the Author:

Mickey Spillane is one of the world’s bestselling novelists, with sales of over 200 million copies worldwide of his more than 30 books. In 1995 he was named a Grandmaster by the Mystery Writers of America, and published his thirteenth Mike Hammer novel the following year. This collection is the first-time-ever omnibus featuring the first three novels by the living master of the hard-boiled mystery. Mickey currently lives with his wife in South Carolina.
