Publisher's Summary

Mike Hammer is summoned to a meeting with Jamie Winters, a US senator from New York, and Jamie's lovely, very smart wife, Nicole, considered by many to be the power behind the throne. Winters is being blackmailed, and Hammer is given a list of suspects who may be behind the threats to the senator's career. But when the suspects begin to drop like flies, Hammer realizes there is more to this case than just a salacious tape.

Politics and Murder

If you like the 'Mike Hammer ' series this is a little less sanitized but a great story. What starts as blackmail of a politician leads to several murders.

Still, Hammer, after all these years

Max Allan Collins continues his run of completing Spillane's outlines, unfinished manuscripts, and plans for additional Mike Hammer novels. This is modernized pulp, but if you understand that going in, it can be a great deal of fun. Also, the narrator does a fine job performing the story even if he isn't Stacy Keach. How Hammer is it? I could almost.... almost hear the soulful strains of "Harlem Nocturne" which was used for years as the theme for the TV movies and show in the 1980's.

Stacy Keach should have read.

would have been better if Stacy Keach had been the narrator. Story was very good though, hard to stop.

Mike Hammer Forever!

I was very excited for this new Mike Hammer Mystery. Max Allan Collins does a great job of continuing the Mickey Spillane adventures. Like it says in the forward this one is a little more like the tv series compared to some of the “revenge” novels. I hope Max keeps writing them because they just keel getting better. I was also excited to see Stefan Rudnicki being the new narrator following John Dan Miller and of course Stacy Keach. Stefan has an amazing voice and is a perfect choice to take up the Mike Hammer mantle. I highly recommend this new Mike Hammer mystery!

a must listen!

if you're already a fan than there's nothing more for me to say; if not yet, prepare to be; no more words necessary.

Hammer lives

In this one Mike Hammer is around 60 years of age and engaged to Velda while being true to her all the years. Still he gets involved with a case along with Velda that brings all the old action back.

At the beginning of the book, the other author, Max Allan Collins, explains how he got involved with finishing all the unfinished Hammer books.

It turns out that at some point Mickey Spillane became a Jehovah’s Witness. The church really cracked down on the elements of his books that didn’t fit the fate. Still he had the Hammer writing bug and he would come up with an idea for a new book and start writing although sometimes there was nothing more than a synopsis. So when Collins agreed to tidy things up he didn’t realize how many books there were and all the different stages they were at. Still he had made the agreement, stuck to it and did the best he could in finishing up the books while staying as true to the Mike Hammer character as he could.

Murder, My Love

It had enough mystery to keep me interested. I finished it fairly quickly and enjoyed it.

Well Done

This is my first Mice Hammer novel. It was much better than I expected. It included all the necessary ingredients for a well told story and some soft erotica
I would recommend to anyone.

Another action-packed, non-pc as hell, Mickey/Collins read!

Well, what can you say?

No, not Raymond Chandler or Dashiel Hammet, or even Jim Thompson.

When you walk into any McD’s in the world you always know what you’ll get. And, yup every Mickey Spillane novel is in the same fashion, you are certain of the product and its quality, even the ones he didn’t write.

Don’t tell anybody, this is my own dirty, little secret. I love this hard-boiled noir pulp genre. Yes, with all those wonderful non-pc stereotypes! or, preciously because of them.

Another of those fun, nonfactual, unfinished, old fashioned Mickey Spillane novels reconstructed by the faithful Collins.

Might seem a little too ridiculously preoccupied by luscious, manipulative sex dolls babes and strong, dangerous, violent, randy, fedora wearing detectives (although yes, be it with the years piling up on most of them) but they’re still knocking heads with the young bulls, kicking ass n taking names.

But, every now and then, you get an unexpected bonus - a line, a description, a concept of pure power and gold.

Narration is good.
