Review Text

Twenty years ago Mike Hammer couldn't tell Wagner from Tschaikovsky, but now he makes love by them both. Not only that, he's posing in the nude for a lady painter in the Village. She's not one of the "body lovers" though. They are a crew of monstrous diplomats (Far Eastern and others) and a high-fashion editrix who devise De Sade tortures for lonely prostitutes. But Mike's still no softie (he refuses to marry Velda) and when he blows his top, vile bodies fall everywhere... Readers may complain that Mike only kills about half as many crooks per book as does Tiger Mann, Spillane's other hero; in fact, Mike is comparatively over-motivated. But the ironic climax here explodes splendidly. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
