This work includes three novels: One Lonely Night ; The Big Kill ; and, Kiss Me, Deadly . Mickey Spillane said If the public likes you, you're good . The public liked him - enough to make him one of the bestselling novelists of all time. Not just because he was good, but because he was the best. What's more, he was the first. Mickey Spillane's classic Mike Hammer detective novels may have appalled intellectuals and outraged moralists, but beneath the feverish prose, beyond the raw explosion of sex and violence, Spillane wrote honestly, simply, astonishingly about loyalty. And betrayal. Collected here are three of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer novels that really deliver the goods, one shade blacker than noir - stories that begin in the gutter and go down from there. Here is a world where the only crime is getting caught, where justice can be bought for the price of a beer, and where corruption lies around every corner. This is Mike Hammer's world. Welcome to it...and watch out.
