Publisher's Summary

In what Mickey Spillane had planned to be the final Mike Hammer novel, Hammer finds himself up against a clever serial killer targeting only cops.

A killer Mike Hammer's old friend Captain Pat Chambers had put away many years ago is suddenly freed on new, seemingly indisputable evidence, and Hammer wonders if this outwardly placid, very odd old man might somehow be engineering cop killings that all seem to be either accidental or by natural causes. At the same time, Hammer and Velda are dealing with the fallout - some of it mob, some of it federal government - over the $89billion cache the detective is (rightly) suspected of finding not long ago.

    "The old ones are still the best"
    If you could sum up King of the Weeds in three words, what would they be?

    Great Mickey Spillane


    What other book might you compare King of the Weeds to, and why?

    Any Mickey Spillane novel.


    Have you listened to any of Stacy Keach’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No but I will look out for more


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Brought back the feeling of illicit reding of Spillane books when I was a schoolboy in the 1960s.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a shame there aren't more Mike Hammer novels available as audio books.

    "Excellent,as expected"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Stacy Keach made it believable .The writing was excellent and as expected for MS.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    YES, MS IS A GREAT WRITTER,NO DOUBT


    Which scene was your favorite?

    MS gives descriptions and character dialog that's not common or seen anymore in todays modern writing and it's fantastic.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Mickey Spillane does Mike Hammer x 89 billion +


    Any additional comments?

    This is the way real detective investigations actually work ,or at least how they did or should have. Mike Hammer is a classic and nobody does it better.
