LoveReading View on Mike Hammer - King of the Weeds

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

When legendary crime bruiser Mickey Spillane died, he left countless unfinished novels or outlines for books he never got down to writing. His close friend and also one of the best American crime writers of his generation, Max Allan Collins (responsible amongst other things for The Road To Perdition) has made it his task to complete the Spillane opus. Fifth gear thrills, spills and a humdinger of a plot welcome back a now elderly Mike Hammer and the luscious Velda when an assassination attempt goes wrong and they must urgently discover who ordered the hit on Mike. A rough diamond of a private eye, Mike Hammer is the sort of sleuth who shoots first and asks questions after and, although resolutely old-fashioned, is always a hoot to see in action with all guns blazing. Huge fun.

Mike Hammer - King of the Weeds Synopsis

Mike Hammer's cop pal Captain Pat Chambers is nearing retirement, and Mike and his gorgeous secretary Velda are planning a much overdue marriage. It's a mellow time for America's toughest detective, until an assassin's bullet almost brings him down on his doorstep. Could the attempted hit have anything to do with the release of a serial killer put away by Mike and Pat, decades ago?
