Dane Hartman. The Mexico Kill (1982) (Dirty
Harry #4) [pbo]
San Francisco Police Inspector Harry Callahan is in trouble with his
superiors again. After shooting up a nightclub while apprehending a known
drug dealer, Harry loses two things: his collar and his badge. Luckily
he knows all kinds of people. Harold Keepnews, a millionaire whose yacht
has been hijacked and crew murdered, hires Harry to investigate. The yacht
is back in the San Francisco marina with a new paint job and a new name.
Keepnews wants the pirates caught and punished—something “Dirty” Harry
is uniquely qualified to do. After a car chase that leads from the Marina
through the Presidio and ends in a gun battle in Golden Gate Park, Harry
agrees to take job. He is onboard Keepnews’ new yacht with a hand-picked
crew on a run to Mexico, hoping to draw the hijackers out. He blasts his
way through the drug runners headquarters in a coastal Mexican town, then
returns to San Francisco to track down the ringleader—an enterprise that
will leave only one man standing.
