Comprises book 7 through 9 in the Mike Hammer series. The first two showed a different p.I to what Hammer fans are used to, one who at times reminded me of Ken Bruen's Jack Taylor. Velda's revelation in 'the snake' was a little hard to swallow, apart from that minor blight vol 3 was an enjoyable collection of Hammer novels with 'the twisted thing' being the highlight.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you are the type that likes a good Mike Hammer yarn, then you won't be let down. If you barely made it through 'I, the Jury' then don't bother as these stories don't quite hit that first level if brilliance.

A solid collection of Hammer novels. The latter is quite different in tone from the first two, and where the hell was Velda in the last one? Worth a read.
If you like hard-boiled detectives, then Mickey Spillane delivers. Excellent noir.

Mickey Spillane was one of the world's most popular mystery writers. His specialty was tight-fisted, sadistic revenge stories, often featuring his alcoholic gumshoe Mike Hammer and a cast of evildoers who launder money or spout the Communist Party line.

His writing style was characterized by short words, lightning transitions, gruff sex and violent endings. It was once tallied that he offed 58 peop
