Synopsis: Mike Hammer is on the mend after taking two slugs in a shootout. He’s called back into the city to sit by the deathbed of an old war buddy, laid low by a mysterious gunman. With his last breath, Hammer’s friend whispers to him the secret that killed him—a secret that leads right to $89 billion of stolen Mafia money. Still recovering from his brush with death, Hammer is faced with a choice—to keep clean, or to risk his life, and the life of the woman he loves, in pursuit of the biggest payday he’s ever seen.
