Description - The Mike Hammer Collection by Mickey Spillane
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 guys who wished to drive home a message, used their fists. 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. 1, The Jury sees homicide's hottest anti-hero Mike Hammer investigating the brutal murder of a close friend, and fighting with a desire to exact a terrible form of revenge. In My Gun Is Quick, Spillane's quick-fisted hero hunts for the killer of a red-head who gets her kicks in all the wrong ways. Vengeance Is Mine! sees Hammer infiltrating the Mafia to investigate a series of mysterious killings of women.
