Publishers Weekly Review

Mike Hammer : The Will to Kill

Publishers Weekly


Collins's 10th posthumous novel-length collaboration with Spillane (after 2016's A Long Time Dead) successfully integrates PI Mike Hammer's stereotypical tough-guy narration into a whodunit plot set in 1965 New York. Hammer's knack for being in the wrong place at the right time again manifests when he discovers a corpse on a late-night walk along the Hudson River. The body, whose bottom half is missing, is eventually identified as belonging to Jamison Elder, the butler for the late Chester Dunbar, a former cop who became a millionaire and used his money and power to send crooked politicians to prison. Three years earlier, Dunbar died at his estate outside Monticello, N.Y., apparently from a heart attack after being unable to reach his nitroglycerin capsules in time. Dunbar's death was ruled accidental, but his friend and Hammer's, NYPD Capt. Pat Chambers, believes that both Dunbar and Elder were murdered, and hires the PI to investigate. The solution to the mystery isn't one of Collins's cleverest, but fans of the originals are likely to be satisfied. Agent: Dominick Abel, Dominick Abel Literary. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
