I, the Jury--My Gun is Quick--Vengeance is Mine!

Mickey Spillane, Author New American Library $16 (513p) ISBN 978-0-451-20352-6
Fans of hard-boiled detective novels will relish the return of three Mickey Spillane classics in The Mike Hammer Collection: I, the Jury, My Gun Is Quick, Vengeance Is Mine. Packed with heavy doses of testosterone, fast action, brutality and sensuality, these three tales depict the darker side of the post-WWII era, a time when tough-guy vigilantes like Hammer were admired, villains were unrepentantly sinister and women were sexy but dangerous. This volume is the first in a series of three-in-one Hammer collections and a fitting tribute to a writer who revolutionized a genre. ( June 8)
