King of the Weeds: A Mike Hammer Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Max Allan Collins, Mickey Spillane

Narrated By: Stacy Keach

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: May 2014

Duration: 7 hours 25 minutes


Mike Hammer’s cop pal Captain Pat Chambers of Homicide is nearing retirement, and Mike and his gorgeous secretary Velda are planning a much overdue marriage. It seems a mellow time for America’s toughest detective—until an assassin’s bullet almost brings him down on his office doorstep. Could the attempted hit have anything to do with the impending release of a serial killer put away by Mike and Pat decades ago? Or is the reason buried in the cave where the Mob once cached a secret fortune—a cave whose “address” Mike Hammer alone knows?

In what Mickey Spillane had planned to be the final Mike Hammer novel—begun in the late 1990s and completed by Max Allan Collins—the iconic tough guy has not dimmed with age. He is just as sharp and deadly as ever.

    This is a real pleasure to experience the new Mike Hammer as brought to life in this new trilogy. I’m of the generation that had Mickey Spillane first hand and right off the press. Stacy Keach brings it all alive.
