Hey, Mick Hammer is back after a seven year drunken spree. Why? Well is seems that Velma disappeared from a routine job seven years ago and was presumed dead. But, maybe not! So lets sober him up so that he can wallow in the depths of the cold war to rescue her. Lots of action; no fluff, unless you count the gratuitous sex. Mindless, but entertaining reading.
This might also be titled Mike Hammer Saves the World. Another of Mikes buddies is the victim of a violent murder. Concurrently the cold war has gone awry. Biological agents have been dispersed that will destroy everyone creating tension on both sides. Only Mike can solve it all, and so he does in his own inimitable style. Lots of action; no fluff, unless you count the gratuitous sex. Mindless, but entertaining reading.
