Book - Murder Never Knocks


Titan Books announce the return of one of the best literary detectives with a new Mike Hammer book from Mickey Spillane and Max Allan Collins...

From masters of the hardboiled genre Mickey Spillane and Max Allan Collins comes a new hardback, standalone thriller featuring one of the most famous private investigators of all time: Mike Hammer.

Mike Hammer is a popular guy. At least with certain people. Several failed assassination attempts have got him riled, so apart from preventing the kidnapping of a famous New York socialite, he’s hellbent on figuring out who wants him dead... Someone who’s desperate for the kill of his life. 

Restored from Mickey Spillane’s original notes and co-authored by his literary executor Max Allan Collins, the two writers come together to create a cunning noir thriller that perfectly melds sharp prose with brutal action. Set against a vintage 1960s backdrop Murder Never Knocks retains all the punch that made the original series so iconic.
