Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The ruthless professional killer known as Quarry long ago disappeared into a well-earned retirement. But now a media magnate has lured the restless hitman into tackling one last lucrative assiignment. The target is an unlikely one: Why, Quarry wonders, would anyone want a beautiful young librarian dead? And why in the hell does he care? On the 30th anniversary of the enigmatic assassin's first appearance, bestselling author Max Allan Collins brings him back for a dark and deadly mission where the last quarry may turn out to be Quarry himself.

Review:

"[V]iolent and volatile and packed with sexuality. The writing is spare. It's classic pulp fiction. Just be sure you know what you're getting into." USA Today

Review:

"Collins' witty hard-boiled prose would make Raymond Chandler proud. If only Bogart were around to record the audio-book." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Fans will be spellbound by the no-nonsense Quarry....Collins never misses a beat, as Quarry finds himself vulnerable to a poentially lethal strain of emotional ambiguity. All the stand-up pleasures of dime-store pulp with a beguiling level of complexity." Booklist
