In one moment a storm of madness entered the private eye's life. As he starts hunting for the killer, Hammer is haunted by the message left on his desk: "You die for killing me." Suddenly, he is in too deep with a lethal blonde who has big ideas, a CIA secret, another set of murders, and the trail of an international hitman named Penta. Now Hammer knows it's only a matter of time...
