I haven't read "One Lonely Night" myself (if I have, I've forgotten), now I know where to check. Thanks.

By the way, I just finished "Kiss Me, Deadly". I read it for the first time and although I've never liked Spillane very much, I was disappointed by this. Not very strong storyline, not very interesting characters (especially Pat Chambers is boring as hell), and the fear of mafia seemed a bit exaggerated. The film made it all better and it seemed like an original piece of art compared to Spillanes novel.
