The best-selling hard-boiled detective of them all?  Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer. 

Hammer first appeared in the novel I the Jury, a book that sold over 6 million copies in the United States alone. 

Spillane's detective novels have sold  over 225 million copies worldwide, and the Mutual radio network turned the popular private eye into a radio series, That Hammer Guy. 

This episode, The Saddle Shoes, first aired on April 7, 1953.
