Publisher's Summary

In what Mickey Spillane had planned to be the final Mike Hammer novel, Hammer finds himself up against a clever serial killer targeting only cops.
A killer Mike Hammer's old friend Captain Pat Chambers had put away many years ago is suddenly freed on new, seemingly indisputable evidence, and Hammer wonders if this outwardly placid, very odd old man might somehow be engineering cop killings that all seem to be either accidental or by natural causes. At the same time, Hammer and Velda are dealing with the fallout - some of it mob, some of it federal government - over the $89billion cache the detective is (rightly) suspected of finding not long ago.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Brought back the feeling of illicit reding of Spillane books when I was a schoolboy in the 1960s.


Any additional comments?

It's a shame there aren't more Mike Hammer novels available as audio books.
