Newswoman Robin Hudson finds that life actually seems to be going right for a change. But it isn't long before a good deed for a strange man leads her into a bizarre murder investigation-and into a secret world of men she never knew existed. A testosterone-filled hunting expedition, libidinous chimps, a convention of drugged feminists, and a mysterious chemical known as Adam 1: what better way for a girl to take a look at the sexual stereotypes, social conditioning, and mad science that obsesses us all? A perfect blend of mystery and mockery, as well as an unorthodox love letter to men, The Last Manly Man brings Robin one of her most unusual cases yet.

"[Hayter's] casual observations on New Yorkers and their loony obsessions have just the right dash of caustic wit." (The New York Times Book Review)

"The Last Manly Man is satire at its best: witty, wise, and oh, so relevant. Sparkle Hayter's novel . . . is an absolute hoot!" (Susan Isaacs)
