Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Mickey Spillane tells us about the adventures of Mike Hammer, perhaps one of the original hard boiled private detectives in mystery literature. The setting is in cold, grim New York City with more than its share of problems and criminals. Keep in mind when this was written because back then things weren't exactly "politically correct." Women were little more than sex objects and men were tough. Mike Hammer, however, manages to be a gentleman and a rogue at the same time. For non-stop action, this is a good read.
Great book for Mickey Spillane fans -- I like it as most of his novels are out of print and are not in many libraries anymore.
Some readers may look at this book as "politically incorrect" given it's way of referring to characters as "dames", etc., but it's really about the style of writing which you don't see anymore. Spillane's style was direct, blunt, and in your face. Classic Mickey Spillane.
A one of a kind author, collected in one great volume. These five stories are good selections, the best being I the jury. If you like sin city graphic novel tales or old school noir you've found your next read.
