Summary

Everybody loves a mystery, and nobody solves them like Mike Hammer. While other detectives bend and manipulate the law, Hammer holds it in total contempt, seeing it as nothing more than an impediment to justice, the one virtue he holds in absolute esteem.

Now, the no-holds-barred private eye returns, along with his gorgeous secretary, Velda, and a collection of New York City characters, in two fully dramatized "theater-of-the-mind" audio adventures: "Dangerous Days" and "Oil and Water."

Narrated by Stacy Keach, the acclaimed actor who starred in the original Mike Hammer television series, these new mysteries are written by the writers of that show and enhanced with a full supporting cast, sound effects, and music. Even the show's jazzy theme song is back to set the gritty tone for each episode.

Not great value

Would you listen to The New Adventures of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer again? Why?

Probably not. It's not that gripping and too many other books to listen to

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mike

What about Stacy Keach’s performance did you like?

It's very tongue in cheek

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

No. True I was listening while driving but it's not that great

Any additional comments?

Terrible value at one credit for two and a half hours

I enjoyed it

Good narration, typical Mike Hammer. Not too deep, helps pass the time from point to point!
