"Recuperating in Florida after the mob shoot-out that nearly claimed his life, Mike Hammer learns that an old mentor on the New York police force has committed suicide. Hammer returns for the funeral--and because he knows that Inspector Doolan would never have killed himself. When a woman is murdered practically on the funeral's doorstep, Hammer is drawn into the hunt for a cache of Nazi diamonds and for the mysterious woman who had been close to Doolan in his final days. Everything leads to a Mafia social club where Hammer and his .45 come calling, initiating the wildest showdown since Spillane's classic One Lonely Night."--Back cover.
