Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Mickey Spillane's classic private eye novels, the action exploded in a bone-crunching catharsis. Men and women didn't make love — they collided. Tough brutes used their fists to drive home a message. Tougher broads used guile. And no one's morals were loftier than the gutter. No apologies. Little redemption. These novels rendered critics powerless, shocked intellectuals, inspired a new wave of pulp mayhem, and left the public hungry for more.

Given their hot, fever-pitch prose and breathless pacing, Spillane's Mike Hammer novels quickly became one of the most successful series in publishing history — an innovative, no-holds-barred, ultravisceral explosion of sex and violence that made Hammer a literary legend and Spillane one of the bestselling authors of all time. After fifty years, neither has lost his power to deliver a knockout punch.

Find out for yourself in this first-time-ever omnibus featuring the first three Mike Hammer novels by the living master of the hard-boiled mystery.

Review:

"This volume is the first in a series of three-in-one Hammer collections and a fitting tribute to a writer who revolutionized a genre." Publishers Weekly
