No dame is pretty with a gun in her hand. But at least this one was alive. The last time Mike Hammer met up with a blonde she ended up dead, and Hammer inherited a war with the Mob. As he digs deeper, he discovers that about 15 years ago the Mafia had been double crossed. Now, people are dying because of it and the girl with the gun is a crucial witness in the case. While Hammer's enemies are searching the city for him, he is ready to go after them. Along the way, he'll find out just how deadly a kiss can get.

Listening to Mr. Spillane's books as embodied by Stacy Keach reading Mike Hammer was like conversing to a yarn spun by the man himself. Having had the pleasure of conversing with Mr. Spillane at his home in 1984, reading his works (or listening to them) are like extending the visit. We shared mechanics at the time and Mr. Spillane spoke as he wrote. This story was just another example of his view on life. I have heard other readings of Mr. Spillane works, and only Mr. Keach grasps or fills the size 12's of Mike Hammer. everyone else that has tried has fallen far short for his efforts.
Just another one... predictable, yet immensely enjoyable.
You mean... the Hammer? No body else can be him.
I knew Lily was trouble...
Just an enjoyable listen... well worth the price of admission.
