The Real Mike Hammer

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The reader should know that Jack Stang was my father and I have chosen to tell this story in his voice. He was an extraordinary man and I have tried to tell his story in an unbiased manner. He was not perfect as no one is, but he was truly a man of his time.

The Real Mike Hammer

Great read. Incredible life story. Shows what a true man that values family over life will do.
Amazing insight on the "Real" Hammer.

Fusing a well told story with an accurate biography of an American hero

Jack Stang Jr. has, with only the passion and love a child can have for his parent, has created a chronicle about the life of a man that meant so much to him and now means so much to me. He lived an exemplary life in a generation that was in my mind exemplary. This is a book that serves as a tribute not only for this wonderful man but for his generation.

The Real Mike Hammer

I found this to be an outstanding story of the life and
adventures of Jack Stang. It is very well written and
informative, giving blow-by-blow descriptions of the
life of an outstanding man in his youth, as a war hero
and as a rough Newburgh cop. His association with the
famed Mickey Spillane inspired Spillane to develop the
character Mike Hammer, and the rest was history. Truly
an exciting, adventure packed story. Enjoyable reading !
I strongly recommend it to any Mike Hammer/Mickey Spillane
