About the Book

In the midst of a Manhattan snowstorm Mike Hammer halts the violent robbery of a pair of college sweethearts who have stumbled on 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. The result is a thriller as classic as Spillane’s own I, the Jury and as compelling as Collins’s Road to Perdition.
