Cover of the Week 7

Happy Valentine's Day.

And this is what  happens when you google search "blond" "gun" and "cover."

If the name Mickey Spillane was not present, I would seriously think this was the title of a soft-core porn.


  1. That's Sherri Spillane on the cover, who was Mick's wife at the time. When the hardcover was published, it was the first one in U.S. publishing history with a photo of a naked woman on the cover. Sold like hotcakes.

    After they divorced, Sherri became a "celebrity" agent, with clients like Joey Buttafuco, John Wayne Bobbitt, etc....

  2. Chris,
    Thanks for the info behind that cover. That's a hell of a story on it's own.
