- What are the attributes of a hard-boiled detective. Apart from his "uniform", including a hat, a gun and a tough attitude, he smokes and drinks. A lot. Mike Hammer, the hero of Mickey Spillane, is the embodiment of this concept. At least in his third novel, Vengeance is Mine, published in 1950. The reader will have a hard time if he decides to start searching for a page without a line referring to smoking. This might seem odd for us living in 2011 when we hear all the time that cigarette is lethal and should be banned everywhere....   [tags: Author, Novel Analysis, Contrasts]
