Jack Hammer is a book that comes in under the heading of “New To You”. I reviewed and heartily recommended this book ages ago (Review – Jack Hammer Book One: Political Science)….
Here’s some of that review:
Jack McGriskin was famous, or infamous is probably more appropriate. First a prize fighter and then a Super Hero. But now he’s a P.I. with a class four Superhuman Activities License and a case. A case with enough twists and turns to make Dashiell Hammett proud. Like any classic hard-boiled detective novel the case was a simple one, till the man Jack’s investigating turns up dead. But that’s not stopping Jack…
…Iconic has a really great style, totally suited to this type of book. If you’ve got a good funky jazz album to play in the background it really suits the mood. The hard nosed detective fiction genre is alive and well with a super hero twist. I hope we see further adventures of Jack Hammer and his crew, four issues just aren’t enough.
I think it’s pretty on the money to say I enjoyed the hell out of this book! I think you will too:
