Publisher Description

“The next time you pull a gun on me I put one between your eyes.”

Private investigator Mike Hammer and the beautiful Velda go on vacation to a small beach town on Long Island after wrapping up the Williams case from I, the Jury. Walking along the boardwalk, they witness a brutal beating at the hands of some vicious local cops—and Hammer wades in to defend the victim.

When a woman turns up naked—and dead—astride the statue of a horse in the town’s park, how she wound up this unlikely Lady Godiva is just one of the mysteries Hammer feels compelled to solve.

This is Mickey Spillane’s lost, never-before-published 1940s Mike Hammer novel, written between I, the Jury and My Gun Is Quick. Completed by Spillane’s friend and literary executor Max Allan Collins, Lady, Go Die! is finally making its way out into the world almost seventy years after its inception.

  • “A clever, fast-moving plot drives Collins’ gritty fifth posthumous collaboration with MWA Grand Master Spillane…Once again, Collins displays his mastery of Spillane’s distinctive two-fisted prose.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Before he died, in 2006, we’re told, Spillane bequeathed his papers to Collins, saying, ‘He’ll know what to do.’ Collins has been industriously finishing unpublished Spillane books ever since…Collins knows the pistol-packing PI inside and out, and Hammer’s vigilante rage (and gruff way with the ladies) reads authentically.”

    " Very well written mob type book. Ending was a little predictable but characters were interesting. "

    " All these years later, Mike Hammer still causes me to shout out the word "damn" several times, very loud. Great story. Really awesome. I'm so glad Max Allan Collins is keeping Hammer swingin'. "

    " I'm really in love with these Mickey Spillane/Max Allan Collins team ups. This book kept me reading, and everyone once in a while I'd get a step ahead of it, but it didn't matter because it's written just so damn well. "

    " Enjoyble read. Fun game to figure out which words were Spillane's and which were Collins. "

    " A bit flowery at times, but in the Hammer tradition and eminently readable. "
