"Day of the Guns" was the first of four Tiger Mann novels, followed by "Bloody Sunrise," "Death Dealers," and "By-Pass Control." Although it seems like nearly every writer in the mid-sixties wanted to camp onto the James Bond bandwagon, there are perhaps none who did a spy novel as successfully as Mickey Spillane.

Tiger Mann is an aging spy who had fought the Nazis twenty years earlier, nearly dying at the betraying hands of the bombshell Nazi spy Rondine. He has vowed to catch this voluptuous fantasy girl and end her life as she did to so many of his buddies and is amazed years later to spot her, after plastic surgery, working for the British UN mission. Or is it her? No one else seems to think so and her background as Edith Caine from a well -heeled British family checks out.

It is a cat and mouse game with the sexiest spy that ever lived and, Tiger relives his years ago romance with this deadly dame. This is spy fiction done right, mean, nasty, hardboiled, and just great reading. Spillane tells this story well with just the right amount of intrigue, action, and cattiness. ( )

Easy to read, the story drags you along. I prefer Mike Hammer to Tiger Mann but that may be because I have read a lot of Hammer stories before this Mann one and I am used to him. Still, its a good, entertaining, Spillane. ( )

I looked past Wally Gibbons at the woman who had just come into the Cavalier Restaurant and felt the same as every other man in the place.
