“I don’t want to arrest anyone. I just want to shoot somebody.”—Mike Hammer 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.” “Dangerous Days” – When Hammer rescues a crazed young woman clad only in a medical gown, he’s flung into the shadowy world of secret ops and international terrorism. New York is the target, and Mike Hammer is the only man who can prevent a massive catastrophe. But will he find out who the real enemy is before it’s too late? “Oil and Water” – The one woman Mike Hammer might have married is back in town. But when she’s murdered after making an appointment with her ex-lover, Mike winds up investigating a massive conspiracy involving a powerful oil company. Hammer thinks he’s close to the truth, but has he been played for a sucker all along? Narrated by Stacy Keach, the acclaimed actor who starred in the original Mike Hammer TV 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With fists swinging, Spillane’s iconic private eye is back in two exciting original dramatizations…Throughout both of these well-produced adventures, guns boom, windows crash and cars roar, while colorful characters—including Hammer’s always loyal secretary, Velda—are portrayed by talented actors. But it’s Keach’s calm, stalwart and true performance of Mike Hammer that holds these stories together. Keach’s deep resonant voice and his perfect timing with a quip or a threat combine to keep the listener enthralled.” Publishers Weekly
“The sound design and acting are top-notch, making for a diversion that’s perfect for two ninety-minute commutes. Stacy Keach, who’s already embraced his inner Hammer on TV, does a solid job in the lead, and a nice job composing and performing the background music, as well. A 2009 Audie Finalist.” AudioFile
