The legendary Mike Hammer continues to thrill readers everywhere, even after the passing of his brilliant creator, Mickey Spillane.

When private investigator Mike Hammer accompanies a conservative politician to Moscow on a fact-finding mission, he is arrested and imprisoned by the KGB on a bogus charge. He quickly escapes, creating an international incident by getting into a firefight with Russian agents.

On his stateside return, the government is none too happy with Hammer. Russia is insisting upon his extradition, and various government agencies are following him. A question dogs our hero: why him? Why does Russia want him back, and why was he singled out to accompany the senator to Russia in the first place?

About the Author:

MICKEY SPILLANE (1918-2006) was one of the most popular authors of all time, with millions of copies of his books in print worldwide. He introduced Mike Hammer to readers in 1947 with I, the Jury. He was named a Grand Master in 1995 by the Mystery Writers of America.

MAX ALLAN COLLINS has earned fifteen Shamus nominations from Private Eye Writers of America, winning twice for his Nathan Heller novels True Detective and Stolen Away. His graphic novel Road to Perdition was the basis of the Academy Award-winning film of the same name starring Tom Hanks, and his CSI books frequently appeared on the USA Today bestsellers list, making the New York Times list twice.

From Booklist:

Since Spillane’s death in 2006, Collins has been busy completing the pulpmaster’s unfinished work, including Mike Hammer novels from various moments in the iconic PI’s career. This one, a follow-up to The Girl Hunters (1961), is set in 1964. Hammer has just come back from fighting his way across Russia after a bodyguard gig for a conservative senator led to Hammer’s abduction by the KGB. But now, it seems, the commies have followed him to New York. But why do they want him? Is it simply revenge for the 45 men he killed while escaping, or something more? Collins has Spillane down cold, from Hammer’s manic grin to his charged patter with the lovely Velda. And while there are hints the world is changing, Hammer hasn’t changed a bit. He’s still an unreconstructed, red-blooded American male who holds lily-livered bureaucrats in sneering contempt. It’s an entertaining time-capsule, but a little goes a long way. Are there still fans crying out for new Hammer adventures? And will they pay for them in hardcover? That’s a mystery yet to be solved. --Keir Graff
