Reviews

"Beautifully produced, this fully realized original radio drama hits all the right notes for an exciting noir adventure. Stacy Keach, who has made PI Mike Hammer his own, provides just the right voice for the now iconic tough guy...Keach is letter perfect in his smooth, unflappable portrayal of Hammer, and he is supported by a talented group of actors. Superb sound design and jazz score (composed and performed by Keach) make this radio novel a great way to spend two hours."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

The author would have loved Stacy Keach in the lead role of PI Mike Hammer...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.
