Just another not quite cintinuation. Very few have managed though a few wolfe and holmes and a sayer arent too off if at first you dibt make it try again i wont say what the first put off was in blurb read sample
I know I have aged since my first introduction to Mickey Spillane and Mike Hammer. He blew me away when I read the first, and subsequent novels. It lasted into the seventies. Did I out grow the genre? I like to think not, but this addition did nothing to renew the fires. Keep trying Max.
