Mickey Spillane THE BODY LOVERS This is for Bob Shiffer who waited a long time Chapter 1 I heard the screams through the thin mist of night and kicked the car to a stop at the curb. It wasn't that screams were new to the city, but they were out of place in this part of New York that was being gutted to make room for a new skyline. Читать онлайн The Body Lovers.

The Body Lovers (1967) is a very good later period Mike Hammer book from Mickey Spillane. It follows Hammer’s investigation into the possible connections between the deaths of several young women. My biggest quibble with it is that the ending is way too abrupt and pat. I was hoping for little more imagination there, especially as it was set up so nicely with the runup narrative. The Hammer of The Body Lovers (and the previous one, The Twisted Thing) is more a traditional crime investigator than the angel of vengeance he is in many of the early books, and I like him much better in this guise.

I nudged the door open, flipped the light switch with the tip of my finger and looked around the room. There was nothing fancy about the Hackard Building or the offices it rented. mum setup with a wooden desk, a pair of chairs and a coat rack. A layer of dust was spread evenly over everything, the window was grimy and the floor scuffed and splintered from the countless pieces of equipment that had been moved in and out. The guy had drawn up a chair close to the door to be able to listen to any activity in the hall outside.

There was no bellhop, but this place had an early-model self-service elevator that took us to the fourth floor where we got out.

Frank Morrison Spillane (/spɪˈleɪn/; March 9, 1918 – July 17, 2006), better known as Mickey Spillane, was an American crime novelist, whose stories often feature his signature detective character, Mike Hammer. More than 225 million copies of his books have sold internationally. Spillane was also an occasional actor, once even playing Hammer himself

The Body Lovers book. I actually really liked The Body Lovers.

The Body Lovers book. This client wasn't Mickey Spillane's usual  . It's a story with quite a few twists and I've tried to read Mickey Spillane before but I didn't like the two books I picked up. I made it about halfway through The Long Wait and a fourth of the way through The Delta Factor. I thought I'd give Spillane another chance, though.

This client wasn't Mickey Spillane's usual. He was a man Spillane had sent to prison and he wanted desperately to find his missing sister. The only clue was a mound of filmy, exotic garments. As Spillane followed the little he had to go on, something like a pattern began to emerge. He knew he was missing something, and whatever it was kept gnawing at the corners of his mind.

Mickey Spillane is my favorite author. The first book I ever read of his is "I, The Jury" in 1951 or '52 when in the Air Force. All the guys thought he was a top notch writer and we passed the books around. His stories are fast paced, action packed and doesn't get bogged down in "who dunnits" His women are beautiful, stacked and hot, very hot. His heroes are rugged, tough, fighters and shooters. When Hero gets pissed someone is going to catch hell, then does. I can rarely pass up reading his books the second I get my hands on them. I can't stand to lay his books down before finishing them. And this one meets all of my descriptions here.
The book arrived speedly in fine shape, no dogeared pages, no tape, to tears, The cover looks exactly like the picture. Could not ask for better service.

Hard to find in US; got it from England. Not P.C. now, written when men were men and women were women.

The Twisted Thing (1966) was Mickey Spillane’s first Mike Hammer novel in two years as he had been busy with his Tiger Mann series in the interim. In this book, which apparently was written much earlier, Hammer is mostly disconnected from the incidents that had occurred in the two previous published installments (The Girl Hunters and The Snake) following the character’s reintroduction in 1962 after a decade-long hiatus.

Old NYPD crony Pat Chambers makes only a brief appearance (there is another compliant cop to serve as Hammer’s legal shield and deus ex machina) and supposed fiancee Velda none at all. Hammer’s conflict with Chambers over Velda, a huge component of The Girl Hunters and still festering somewhat in The Snake, is only hinted at in one line here. On the other hand, Hammer does refer (without elaboration) to the startling conclusion of Spillane’s first Hammer novel, I the Jury, which cemented both Hammer’s reputation as a borderline psychopath and Spillane’s as a writer willing to do anything to make a splash.

Otherwise, The Twisted Thing is pretty much a Hammer standalone novel, which is fine. It is vintage Spillane with its tough guy talk (like all Hammer—and Mann—books, it is narrated in first person), convoluted mystery, convenient clues, plot-advancing coincidences and stupendously preposterous conclusion. The story starts with Hammer’s investigation of the kidnapping of a rich scientist’s 14-year-old son, which soon leads to a number of murders (including one with a meat cleaver), all of which takes place in the small Upstate New York town of Sidon. Along the way Hammer deals with crooked (and murderous) local cops, a lusty dame or two and even some lesbians. Of course he gets knocked around a time or two but always comes up swinging.

Did I enjoy it? Yes…yes I did. Spillane is a master at keeping the plot and suspense going with a combination of new developments and sheer stylistic aplomb. He does so here. The Twisted Thing is one of the best of Spillane’s Hammer books.

My biggest quibble with it is that the ending is way too abrupt and pat. I was hoping for little more imagination there, especially as it was set up so nicely with the runup narrative.

The Hammer of The Body Lovers (and the previous one, The Twisted Thing) is more a traditional crime investigator than the angel of vengeance he is in many of the early books, and I like him much better in this guise. The plot is also more interesting in this kind of book with the innate interest factor of the murder mystery driving the narrative. In the vengeance driven books, Hammer comes off as more of a lunatic loose cannon and the plots tend to be repetitive. Plus, Spillane's apparent inability to flesh out his character from his original one-dimensionality isn't as much of a problem when the story is plot—rather than character—driven.

Unfortunately, Spillane was near the end of his Hammer books at this point, with only Survival…Zero yet to come until he revived the character one more time in the late 1990s for a couple of final installments (several others were finished from Spillane’s manuscripts and published after his death).

If you like hard boiled crime novels of the old school, The Body Lovers would be a good choice.

"The Twisted Thing" by Mickey Spillane is more complex than average pulp noir. The raw violence, graphic fight scenes, and not so subtle sex scenes are all very visual and vivid. Spillane is a master of the beautiful word picture: "He sat there grinning at me like a blooming idiot with the top of his head holding a meat cleaver."

But there is more to this novel. There is commentary on education and on the potential of the human mind. Spillane makes statements on human nature and relationships. All that, as crime after crime piles up.

Narrator Mike Hammer describes the book: "Kidnapping, murder, a disappearance. A house full of black sheep. One nice kid, an ex-stripper for a nurse and a chauffer with a record." He later calls it ". . . a beautiful mess . . ." So it is . . . the possibilities are endless, and in my opinion, the least likely outcome results from the carefully unfolding plot. The suspense is carried to the last page, the last sentence.

Where else can you get lines like: "A pair of deep brown eyes kissed mine so hard I nearly lost my balance. She swept them up and down the full length of me. It couldn't have been any better if she did it with a wet paintbrush," or ". . . I clipped him again on the nose, and again, until there was nothing but a soggy, pulpy mass of flesh to hit." When you read such description, you know you are in the presence of greatness.
