A hit. And a miss. Quarry doesn’t kill just anybody these days. He restricts himself to targeting other hit men, availing his marked-for-death clients of two services: eliminating the killers sent after them, and finding out who hired them…and then removing that problem as well. So far he has rid of the world of nobody who would be missed. But this time he finds himself zeroing in on the grieving family of a missing cheerleader. Does the hit man’s hit man have the wrong quarry in his sights?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The Quarry series is fast-paced, sexy, violent, and entertaining.” BookReporter
Quarry is a kind of American allegory and a profile of a lost generation…The series has strong pulp qualities…but the social critique is also very real. The series began with 1976’s The Broker (or Quarry), when men and women very much like Quarry were themselves returning home from a mostly reviled or forgotten war.” CrimeReads
“This first novel in Collins’ series starring the Vietnam-vet-turned-hit-man finds Quarry five years into his career as an assassin for hire…Collins makes us root for Quarry, or he draws us so completely into Quarry’s world…Collins also pairs his antihero with a writing style that is perfect for the man and the premise: mainly straightforward, no-nonsense declarative sentences, more Hammett than Chandler, more Spillane than Hammett.” Booklist
