Читать онлайн Black Alley. Mickey Spillane - Black Alley. It was a thing that had been sitting there, black and quiet like a holstered gun, unlisted, unknown to anybody, used only for local outgoing calls, and when it was triggered it had the soft, muted sound of a silenced automatic. Softly, I muttered, "Damn. Pat Chambers knew what I was thinking and let me take my time. Old buddy Marcos Dooley had brought Pat and me into the intelligent end of the military before the war ended and steered us to where we were today. Only Pat could still wear the uniform, an NYPD blue.

On a list complied in 1967 of all the best-selling books published in America between 1895 and 1965, seven of the top twenty-nine were written by Spillane. Most of Spillane's short fiction was produced in the 1950s and published in Manhunt and such men's magazines as Cavalier and Male. Between 1953 and 1961 Spillane stopped writing full-length novels after converting to the Jehovah's Witnesses, and between 1973 and 1989 for sixteen years, when he advertised Miller Lite beer.

It is Mickey Spillane. There is not much more that you need to know. Spillane wrote, particularly in his Hammer series, the toughest, sparsest, leanest prose filled with action that anyone has ever written. The early Spillane novels "The Black Alley" was the final Mike Hammer novel published before Spillane's death. It is a companion piece to the recently-published collaboration of "King of the Weeds. Black Alley" begins the story finished in "King of The Weeds. It is Mickey Spillane.

Mickey Spillane's larger-than-life lawman Caleb York is back-in the latest tough-as-nails Western novel from New York Times bestselling author Max Allan Collins. This time Caleb may be outnumbered.

Only about 1/3 through with this one and I am wondering if Mickey Spillane actually wrote this. Mike Hammer has apparently quit smoking, figures to be at least 60 years old in this one and still has not married Velda who is continually young. Let's see, he is a WWII vet and is telling the story with the falling of the Berlin wall in the past so he must be at least 60 to 65. Survives being plugged in the gut twice by the Ponti Gang, is nursed back to health by a drunken psycho washed up surgeon. He can't bring himself the tying the knot with Velda. So many anachronisms and errors. Probably will not finish reading it. I will give the earlier Mike Hammer props for being the probable inspiration for Tim Dorsey's Mahoney.

I have been a fan of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer detective novels for more than 40 years. I have read most of the Mike Hammer series as well as other Spillane books, but I had not read the "Black Alley." This novel begins with literally a bang, as Mike is recovering from serious gun shot wounds caused by two bullets. In this volume the gun shot wounds caused so much damage that it restricts our detective when it comes to engaging in physical fights, but it does not stop him from pulling the trigger on his 45 caliber semi-auto on the bad guys.

This was one of Mickey Spillane's last Mike Hammer books before he passed away. This book is a great read. This story involves a killing of one of his best friends, old and young mob guys trying to kill him, a promise to marry his long time partner, Velda, and eighty nine billion dollars that his dead old friend hid some place safe. Even though Hammer does not know where all that money is hidden, he figures it all out in the end.

In conclusion, there is enough drama, action and excitement to keep you turning the pages. The final two chapters are the most exciting but enjoy the ride and begin from the first chapter to experience the full Mike Hammer effect.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Predator Hunter: A warrior's memoir)

I've read and enjoyed Spillane for 35 years but his latest work is a major disappointment. Spillane's Hammer has aged along with Spillane with the result that he is more like Barnaby Jones than the Hammer of old. He talks about his buddies from the "War" and the way he talks (and acts), you realize it is WWII.
The story starts with him gut shot and for the rest of the book, he hobbles around. Where the Mike of old would have performed surgery on himself, reloaded the bullet and shot someone with it, this Hammer keeps going to the doctor and complaining. He gets engaged to Velda, she's more than willing, and he does nothing about it. Enough said? Like Agatha Christie, Alistair MacLean and others, age seems to have sapped Spillane's talents. My advice is to skip this book, find some vintage Spillane and enjoy the ride.

Not the old Mike Hammer I grew up with.
Not the old Mickey Spillane either. The writing was repetitive in places (Hammer's injury) and the story seemed to drag a lot. Clues were easily deciphered. The absence of four letter words was (for me) a plus, but the action and plot were just not quite up to par.

IN THIS NOVEL MIKE HAMMER LACKS THE HARD HITTING ATTITUDE THAT HE FORMERLY POSSESSED. THE STORY IS OK BUT WITHOUT THE NORMAL TWIST AT THE END TO REVEAL THE SOLUTION AS IN PAST NOVELS. THE CHARACHTER DEVELOPMENT IS GOOD; I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED THE WAY REAL PEOPLE FIND THEIR WAY INTO THE STORY aka HY GARDNER.

GRIPPING STORY AS USUAL. EASY TO FOLLOW , THE ADVANTAGES OF SPILLANES NOVELS. EVEN AS HE AGES HE IS STILL TOUGH AND UNAFRAID OF ANYTHING AND ANYONE, (EXCEPT PERHAPS VELDA). VERY DESCRIPTIVE WRITING ,A GOOD PLOT WITH INTERESTING CHARACTERS.
This is Mickey Spillane's last Mike Hammer novel. It is as great as the rest of the Hammer's he wrote. Don't pass it up.
