Summary
Mike Hammer, recuperating in Florida after a near-fatal mob shoot-out, returns to New York for a funeral after learning his old mentor, Doolan, has allegedly committed suicide. But Manhattan no longer feels like home. Hammer's longtime partner, Velda, has disappeared, and his office is shut down. When a woman is murdered, Hammer is drawn into the hunt for a cache of Nazi diamonds that makes the Maltese Falcon seem like a knickknack and for the mysterious woman who was close to Doolan in his final days. Soon Hammer is hobnobbing with coke-snorting celebrities and playing footsie with a sleek lady DA. It all leads to a Mafia social club where Hammer and his .45 come calling

Review
Stacy Keach's cynical tones are perfect for an injured, world-weary Mike Hammer, who returns to New York for the funeral of an old cop friend who apparently committed suicide. Keach avoids a one-note performance, however, also delivering humor, drama, and edginess as Mike refuses to accept that his friend killed himself and makes the rounds in an investigation. Once again working from rough notes and partial drafts by the late Mickey Spillane, Max Allan Collins has crafted another devilishly entertaining Hammer thriller, giving the listener generous doses of sex, sadism, and thrills. As the plot escalates into an international criminal enterprise, Keach closes the deal with a tough-as-nails yet nuanced performance. J.P.M. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
