Publisher's Summary

Everybody loves a mystery, and nobody solves them like Mike Hammer. While other detectives bend and manipulate the law, Hammer holds it in total contempt, seeing it as nothing more than an impediment to justice, the one virtue he holds in absolute esteem.

Now, the no-holds-barred private eye returns, along with his gorgeous secretary, Velda, and a collection of New York City characters, in two fully dramatized "theater-of-the-mind" audio adventures: "Dangerous Days" and "Oil and Water."

Narrated by Stacy Keach, the acclaimed actor who starred in the original Mike Hammer television series, these new mysteries are written by the writers of that show and enhanced with a full supporting cast, sound effects, and music. Even the show's jazzy theme song is back to set the gritty tone for each episode.

Nice modern version of the classic.

2 stories included. Mr Keech is excellent in his old role. very enjoyable. The great thing about audio drama is that it doesn't matter how old you are or what you look like in real life, your ears paint the picture with these.

Quintessential Noir

I thought it was a bit cliche at times and a bit dated at others. But I really liked it still. these two stories were a lot of fun.

Mike Hammer

This is a good quick detective story with Mike Hammer. I enjoyed it but I like them a little longer but this was good. Stacy Keach does a great job narrating this book.

Not great value

Would you listen to The New Adventures of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer again? Why?

Probably not. It's not that gripping and too many other books to listen to

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mike

What about Stacy Keach’s performance did you like?

It's very tongue in cheek

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No. True I was listening while driving but it's not that great

Any additional comments?

Terrible value at one credit for two and a half hours

So hard-boiled, you might hurt somebody

I'd heard Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer stories were so hard-boiled as crime fiction, they were almost indistinguishable from parody. I think that's fair, I loved these, the tough detective and the dame. Reminded me of Frank Drebin. Excellent narration. Not great crime literature in the mould of Hammet or Chandler, but great fun.

satisfyingly noir

Wasn't sure I'd like this - I'm faithful to the originals - but the transition to modern day works surprisingly well. The occasional nod to technology detracts in no way from the feel of 30's down at heel America and provides Hammer with some sharp dialogue. Not for the purists but a treat if you like your detectives dished up with grit. Fun!

From a once greatly feared and respected salmon.

A fish has but two lips granted it was irrelevant in regards to this audiobook. Very good.
