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 his nearly finished 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 and  as compelling as Collins’s Road to Perdition.

From the Back Cover:

"[Spillane has] a rough-hewn charm that’s as refreshing as it is rare."— Entertainment Weekly   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 his nearly finished manuscript and extensive notes to his frequent collaborator, Road to Perdition author Max Allan Collins, to complete. The Goliath Bone marks the triumphant return of Spillane's beloved PI Mike Hammer after a twelve-year hiatus, in a timely thriller destined to be a hard-boiled classic.   "One of the all-time greats."— Rocky Mountain News (Denver)   MICKEY SPILLANE (1918–2006) 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.
