When Mike Hammer learns that an old friend on the New York police force has committed suicide, he attends the funeral, knowing that Inspector Doolan would never have killed himself. A murder fresh on the funeral’s heels draws Hammer into the hunt for Nazi diamonds, and for the mysterious beauty who had been close to Doolan in his final days. But drug racketeers, who had it in for the tough old cop, attract Hammer’s attention as well. Soon he is hobnobbing with coke-snorting celebrities at the notorious disco Club 52 and playing footsie with a sleek lady D.A., a modern female on the make for old-fashioned Hammer. Everything leads to a Mafia social club where Hammer and his .45 come calling, initiating the wildest showdown since Spillane’s classic One Lonely Night.
