"HE WAS THE KILLER AND I WAS THE TARGET."

It should be a mellow time for America's toughest PI. He and Velda are planning their nuptials, and Captain of Homicide Pat Chambers is nearing retirement. Then an assassin's bullet almost brings Mike down on his office doorstep. Could the attempted hit have anything to do with the impending release of a serial killer put away by Mike and Pat? There's also the small matter of the $89 billion in Mafia money stashed in a cave, in a location known only to Hammer. With everyone from wiseguys to the US Government on his tail,  Mike must prove that he is just as sharp, and deadly, as ever.
Industry Reviews
"The plot feels very modern and I can see this being a movie. A nice Bloody Mary and a Old-Fashioned up pairs well when reading "King of the Weeds." - Retrenders

"Comes to an exciting conclusion and the final page of the story does not dissappoint. A great ending to an intriguing tale that keeps the reader guessing." - Geek Hard

"For fans of the detective true crime genre, King of the Weeds will be right up your alley. Max Allan Collins does a superb job of channelling the voice that Spillane used in all of his Hammer novels." - City of Films

"Tremendously engaging and impossible to put down." - Comic Book Resources

"pure hard boiled...books like this are why I started reading crime fiction" - Crimespree Magazine

"Collins has remained faithful to the original style of Spillane with a Mike Hammer who is much older in age but just as hard boiled as ever. "King of the Weeds" is a great addition to the series. - Midwest Book Review
