9780151014545: The Goliath Bone (Mike Hammer Novels)

Before he died, Mickey Spillane wrote the beginning and end of a new Mike Hammer novel, as well as outlining the middle section. The novel was completed by his long-time friend, the acclaimed mystery writer Max Allan Collins. Hammer, the most New York of all detectives, battles terrorists in this post 9/11 hard-boiled detective thriller. On an amateur dig in Israel, two students discover what appears to be the femur of a very large humanoid, and there's compelling evidence to suggest that it's the thigh bone of the Biblical giant, Goliath. Back in New York, they head into the subway carrying the carefully wrapped bone when a hitman attempts to kill them.Hammer comes to their rescue. But it is only the beginning of their troubles as various factions will stop at nothing to get their hands on the precious item, each for their own venal and nefarious reasons. Hammer and his loyal assistant Velda assure once again that the decent guys triumph in this cracking new thriller from a master of the genre.

Product Description:

The bestselling American mystery writer of all time brings back his world-famous PI Mike Hammer for his biggest--and most dangerous--case.
In the midst of a Manhattan snowstorm, Hammer halts the violent robbery of a pair of college sweethearts who have stumbled onto a remarkable archaeological find in the Valley of Elah: the perfectly preserved femur of what may have been the biblical giant Goliath. Hammer postpones his marriage to his faithful girl Friday, Velda, to fight a foe deadlier than the mobsters and KGB agents of his past--Islamic terrorists and Israeli extremists bent upon recovering the relic for their own agendas. A week before his death, Mickey Spillane entrusted a substantial portion of this manuscript and extensive notes to his frequent collaborator, Max Allan Collins, to complete. The result is a thriller as classic as Spillane's own I, the Jury, as compelling as Collins's Road to Perdition, and as contemporary as The Da Vinci Code.
