MICKEY SPILLANE (1918-2006) introduced his signature detective character, Mike Hammer, in 1947 with I, the Jury. His books have sold over 225 million copies worldwide.
MAX ALLAN COLLINS, friend of and collaborator on books with Mickey Spillane, is the author of the graphic novel Road to Perdition, which was made into a major motion picture.
STACY KEACH, known worldwide for his television portrayal of detective Mike Hammer, is a consummate actor equally at home on stage, film, television, and audio narration. He has garnered numerous awards for his stage roles, most recently as Richard Nixon in the Kennedy Center's production of Frost/Nixon.From AudioFile:
This is a 21st-century Spillane yarn with all the clichés intact. The author would have loved Stacy Keach in the lead role of PI Mike Hammer. Keach idolized Mickey Spillane as a kid and perfected the character in his portrayal of Hammer in the CBS TV series. Now he's once again proving his mettle as the great private eye. In the audio format his impeccable timing and pacing achieve new excellence. The sound effects are those of a first-rate 1940s radio drama, updated to include vibrating cell phones and computers. Spillane fans will love this exceptional performance. Old-time radio listeners young and old will be fans, too. M.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
