Abridged Audiobook

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: February 2011

Duration: 2 hours 32 minutes


Mike Hammer, the toughest PI of all, draws a seemingly routine assignment—playing bodyguard to diva Rita Vance on the eve of her big Broadway comeback. But Rita is an old flame of Hammer's, and when their romance is rekindled, the detective finds the actress facing death threats and himself the target of one hit man after another. When the actress disappears, the show must go on, which with Mike Hammer means swift, violent retaliation. While the cops and feds go down a false trail, Hammer seeks to make a rescue before Rita's curtain comes down. But first he must make sense of a mystery that takes him from a Soho art gallery to a mountain lodge, from Little Italy to a waterfront confrontation that is way, way off Broadway.

Working from the plot for an unwritten novel found in the files of the late Mickey Spillane, Max Allan Collins (Road to Perdition) has fashioned a compelling noir thriller that is vintage Mike Hammer all the way.

Praise for The New Adventures of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer, Vol. 2: "Beautifully produced, this fully realized original radio drama hits all the right notes for an exciting noir adventure…Keach is letter perfect in his smooth, unflappable portrayal of Hammer…A great way to spend two hours."—Publishers Weekly
