The first collection of stories starring legendary Mike Hammer, the toughest private investigator in history It starts with a few near-accidents. A car almost swipes Mike Hammer when he's crossing the street. A junkie robs the notoriously hardboiled detective at knifepoint. A fight on a subway platform comes close to pushing him in front of a train. While any one of these could be a coincidence, together they make a conspiracy--one that Hammer will have to end in order to survive. And when it comes to finishing something--or someone--nobody does it better than Hammer.
