Mike Hammer is the most tough guy of tough guy detectives, just as Micky Spillane is the most hard-boiled of hard-boiled writers. A Mike Hammer book does not start with someone bringing him a case, instead a person he knows will die and he'll swear revenge and set about taking it/5(2).   This collection foreworded by one of the most successful modern day writers Harlan Coben, presents big stories from a former era. Those interested in this book purely for the Coben angle may be disappointed if they don't understand the concept of this book by the fact that he has no story in here (his foreword barely scraped over a page as well).4/5(3).

He is currently writing a study of the American novelist Ross Macdonald and a book on baseball and American culture.
