As Mickey Spillane sat down to write this Mike hammer mystery in (I guess) 1969/1970, he undoubtedly had a range of targets to turn his right wing ire on. Out on the streets of New York were dopers, pushers, hippies and the rest of the permissive society (although when it comes to dames, it’s fair to say, Hammer quite likes the permissive society). Our protagonist himself remains a product of the 1940s/1950s, a square jawed guy in a suit – so it’s a lot of culture clash fun watching him snarl at...more
SURVIVAL ZERO. (1970). Mickey Spillane. ***.
In this adventure, Spillane’s hero, Mike Hammer, discovers one of his old friends slowly dying of knife wounds. His last words were: “Mike…there wasn’t no reason.” Hammer had no idea what he meant, but was soon on a crusade to find out.

Spillane could sure spill a fast-moving, well written, intriguing mystery. This one is just terrific. Today's mysteries are so poorly constructed I know who did it and how within the first quarter of the book.

It's the whys and reasoning that had me baffled until the end. That makes this an excellent mystery in my book!

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...more
