Synopsis: A never-before-published chapter in Mickey Spillane’s classic series of hard-boiled crime, featuring tough-guy PI Mike Hammer
When Mike Hammer and his secretary-turned-lover, Velda, go on vacation to a Long Island beach town, Hammer becomes embroiled in the mystery of a missing New York party girl who lives nearby. When the woman turns up naked—and dead—astride the statue of a horse in the town square, Hammer feels compelled to investigate . . . Shuttling back and forth between Long Island and the city, Hammer finds himself going toe-to-toe with illegal gamblers, corrupt small-town cops, mobsters, and other shady characters who threaten to tear him down.

Lady Go Die! is Mickey Spillane's lost 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, this uncovered gem of hard-boiled crime fiction is finally making its way into print almost 70 years after its inception.
