Mike Hammer, the toughest PI of all, draws a seemingly routine assignment—playing bodyguard to diva Rita Vance on the eve of her big Broadway comeback. But Rita is an old flame of Hammer's, and when their romance is rekindled, the detective finds the actress facing death threats and himself the target of one hit man after another. When the actress disappears, the show must go on, which with Mike Hammer means swift, violent retaliation. While the cops and feds go down a false trail, Hammer seeks to make a rescue before Rita's curtain comes down. But first he must make sense of a mystery that takes him from a Soho art gallery to a mountain lodge, from Little Italy to a waterfront confrontation that is way, way off Broadway. Working from the plot for an unwritten novel found in the files of the late Mickey Spillane, Max Allan Collins (Road to Perdition) has fashioned a compelling noir thriller that is vintage Mike Hammer all the way.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This noir thriller is based on an idea from Mickey Spillane. Stacy Keach superbly portrays the iconic gumshoe Mike Hammer. The TV show’s jazzy theme song sets the perfect atmosphere, and other sound effects and music composed and performed by Keach add to the package. The supporting cast creates outstanding voices for Velda, Mike’s gorgeous secretary, actress Rita Vance, and a cadre of New York City characters and those farther afield. As the cynical loner, Mike works at protecting Rita, an old flame, but she disappears. The trail takes Mike to Soho, Little Italy, a mountain lodge, and finally a conflict on the waterfront. The first-person narrative, with its sly humor so characteristic of Spillane’s stories, is perfect for Keach. This wonderful listening experience is reminiscent of old-time radio drama. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
