BEST MICKEY SPILLANE COVER EVER!

  1. That's Sherri Spillane, who was Mick's wife at the time.

  2. It's a beaut. And the British hardcover from W.H. Allen is even better. It features the uncensored version of this photo, and the leg goes up the spine of the book.

  3. Ha! I finally found a fine copy of this one just a few weeks ago. (Signet rather than Corgi, but same photo on the cover)
    When I contemplate how the permissive 70s (yay!) turned into the puritanical 80s (boo!) this is the cover I think of.
    Although I think the edition of 'The Last Cop Out' from around the same time is even better...

  4. I think the hardcover shows the boobs.

  5. Maybe best cover, but by far the worst book by Spillane. I tried reading this in the 90's. I got many chapters in and no one got shot or killed. And I had to read the word sphincter at least a dozen times. Gave up.
