PRAISE FOR A KILLING FOR CHRIST

A Killing for Christ is a fast-paced, topical thriller . . . Hamill’s prose is stylishly punchy . . . I would guess that Hamill admires Hemingway, Jimmy Breslin, and Mickey Spillane—not always in that order.” —New York Times (review of original 1968 publication)

“The Helen Macinnes touch . . . the Hitchcock air.” —Philadelphia Inquirer
