HISTORY OF THE MYSTERY 1947


HISTORY OF THE MYSTERY 1947


   In 1947 Mickey Spillane wrote I, THE JURY with the first ultra-tough guy detective Mike Hammer. It was the best-selling mystery up until that time, selling over six million copies.
   Critics disapproved of Spillane's books with their heavy focus on blood and guts, but the public couldn't seem to get enough. Spillane wrote five Mike Hammer novels that were all popular.
