Frontier-style justice prevails over law and order once again as private detective Mike Hammer--here played by his creator, Spillane--is forcibly pulled from seven years of alcoholic abandon by his one-time friend, police captain, Peters. The latter wants the streetwise Spillane's

assistance in interrogating the dying Kash, who will speak to no one but him. The resentful Spillane, whose despondency results from the apparent death of his secretary, Velda, years before, gains the desired information, but refuses to give it to authorities, until persuaded by federal agent

Nolan. Kash, it appears, was a fellow agent, murdered by the same weapon that killed a US senator. The assassination is blamed on communist spies. With the help of syndicated columnist Gardner, Spillane tracks the communist spy ring headed by Taylor. The trail leads to the senator's widow, the

estimable Eaton, whom he romances. Starting to suspect that Velda may still be alive, Spillane vigorously renews the chase, locating the leader of the spy ring and nailing his hands to the floor to ensure his capture by the authorities. He then confronts Eaton about her suspected complicity with

the spies, after first spiking her shotgun, which explodes and kills her when she attempts to shoot him. As in the rest of Spillane's works, any lady who dallies with the detective pays a heavy penalty. Fast and farcical, with girls and gore, this film is just the ticket for those who relish the

Spillane style of justice.
