Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Gripping.” Publishers Weekly
“In Collins’ capable hands, Hammer is still Spillane’s archetypal private dick—as hard-boiled as they come…Set in 1967…what follows is suspenseful, entertaining…This novel supplies the goods: hard-boiled ambience, cynicism, witty banter, and plenty of tough-guy action." Booklist
“Actor Stacy Keach, after decades of portraying Hammer in various media, has become one with the cynical loner detective. Keach’s weary tone and raspy timbre are especially suited for this yarn in which Hammer is (mistakenly) treated like a has-been by cops, crooks, and lovers. Billed as a collaboration between the late Mickey Spillane and his literary executor, Max Allan Collins, the book is true to Spillane’s hard-boiled writing style. Those who are new to the series may find Hammer’s guilt-free killing to be borderline sociopathic, but diehard fans know that when it’s Hammer-time, there’s no room for political correctness.” AudioFile
