Publisher's Summary

The best-selling American mystery writer of all time brings back his world-famous P.I. Mike Hammer for his biggest and most dangerous case yet.

In the midst of a Manhattan snowstorm, Hammer halts the violent robbery of a pair of college sweethearts who have stumbled onto a remarkable archeological find in the Valley of Elah: the perfectly preserved femur of what may have been the biblical giant Goliath. Hammer postpones his marriage to his faithful girl Friday, Velda, to fight a foe deadlier than the mobsters and KGB agents of his past: Islamic terrorists and Israeli extremists bent upon recovering the relic for their own agendas.

Completed after Spillane's death by his frequent collaborator, Max Allan Collins, this thriller is as classic as Spillane's own I, the Jury and as contemporary as The Da Vinci Code.

The Goliath Bone narrated by Stacy Keach

I really enjoyed this book. It was my first time listening to a Mickey Spillane book. And I was intrigued by Stacy Keach narrating a book as I had not heard him do a book before.
I am so glad I purchased this book as it was done after the Twin Towers were taken down instead of in the past.
Being more in the here and now made it pertinent to today’s problems yet gave the book a good old fashioned feel of good winning out over bad.
I loved that even though the detective was ready to retire, he had not lost his edge nor his ability to be one step ahead of the various and sundry bad guys.
Mikes steadfast love for Zelda never wavered and young love prevailed. Even through out the mystery.
The bottom line is this book had a little bit for everyone . Old,young or teenager would enjoy this book.
I recommend it highly.

Mickey Spillane

I always enjoy Mickey Spillane's rough detective novels. I enjoyed the narration of this one since it came from actors and help clarify the story a whole lot more for me.

Too Much

Stacy Keach is brilliant as usual. His performance as Mike Hammer continues to make him Mike Hammer. This story is just too long for me. It should have been several chapters shorter. It is like a movie that takes to long to get to the point. Or as in this case a book that should have reached its climax a couple of thousand words ago. I enjoyed the story overall. I didn’t like some parts like what happened to the bone. Nor the fate of the parents. And especially a long time friend and companion. I am a happily ever after guy.
