Was that reason enough for someone to gag, torture and kill him?By the time Mike figures out that the wrong man has been killed, it's nearly too late. Containers of a virulent strain of bacteria have been hidden around the country, and when the canisters explode, there will be no stopping it: no vaccines, no natural barriers - nothing.Each time Mike tracks down a clue, it leads to a dead man, and time is running out . . .

The sort of money that brings the envious and the scheming clustering like flies around offal: nieces, nephews, cousins ... a family of mean minds and gross appetites.The staff has its peculiarities, too: the chauffeur is an ex-con; the governess formerly a featured act in strip clubs from New York to Miami; and the secretary has a well-developed taste in other women.Yes, it's some household - and not all that welcoming of PI Mike Hammer, not when the kid has been kidnapped and everyone's a suspect.
