HARDBOILED CORNER: QUARRY’S EARLY HITS!



HARDBOILED CORNER: QUARRY’S EARLY HITS!

I’VE LONG ENJOYED BOTH THE NOLAN SERIES AND THE QUARRY SERIES BY MAX ALLAN COLLIN’S. NOW, THE EARLY NOVELS FROM THE LATTER SERIES ARE FINALLY BACK IN PRINT. HARD CASE CRIME HAS HAD A LOCK ON THE LATEST FOUR QUARRY NOVELS (IN PUBLICATION ORDER – NOT CHARACTER CHRONOLOGY) WITH THE LATEST (QUARRY'S EX) DUE FOR PUBLICATION SOON, BUT IT’S GREAT TO SEE THE OTHER HARD HITTING NOVELS IN THE SERIES AVAILABLE AGAIN . . .

QUARRY

Cult favorite Quarry, the killer for hire, is back in print with this debut novel and four other early works by author Max Allan Collins. They don't come any harder-boiled than Quarry. After carrying out his assignment in a down-at-heels river town, the gunman finds someone has played him for a sucker. To figure out who, he must solve the murder he committed. This new edition includes a previously unpublished Afterword by the author


QUARRY’S LIST

Killer-for-hire Quarry is trying to lie low when he gets a midnight visit from two other gunmen sent by an old associate. Someone wants Quarry off the scene--for keeps. Back in print, this early crime novel by the author of The Road to Perdition shows once again that nobody is harder-boiled than Quarry. With a new Afterword by the author.

QUARRY’S DEAL

No longer a killer-for-hire, Quarry now offers his services to people targeted by other hitmen. In this case, the assassin is a beautiful woman who may be as deadly at the game as Quarry himself.

QUARRY’S CUT

When a hitman shows up at retired gunman Quarry's refuge, who is the target? Is it Quarry? Or is the assassin on a different mission--and if so, can Quarry foil it for revenge and profit? The fourth in the classic hard-boiled series from the 1970s, with a new introduction by author Max Allan Colliins.


QUARRY’S VOTE

When retired hitman Quarry turns down a million bucks to murder a presidential candidate, he becomes a "loose end" that the conspirators need to tie off. With his peaceful life in ruins, Quarry launches his own campaign--for vengeance. A new edition, with afterword by the author, of the fifth book in Max Allan Collins's cult classic series. They don't come harder-boiled than Quarry.
