The bestselling American mystery writer of all time brings back his world-famous PI Mike Hammer for his biggestand most dangerouscase.
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 pastIslamic 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.
MICKEY SPILLANE (19182006) sold hundreds of millions of books. He introduced Mike Hammer to readers in 1947 with I, the Jury and was named a British Crime Writers' Association Grand Master in 1995.
MAX ALLAN COLLINS is the author of Saving Private Ryan and the bestselling graphic novel Road to Perdition, among other works. He lives in Muscatine, Iowa.
