THE WRONG QUARRY
of The Wrong Quarry by Max Allan Collins [$9.95]. This is Collins’
tenth novel featuring the professional killer.
From the back cover:
A HIT. AND A MISS.
Quarry doesn’t kill just anybody these days. He restricts himself
to targeting other hitmen, 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’s rid 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 hitman’s hitman have the wrong
quarry in his sights?
No matter the series, I’ve never read a Collins crime, detective or
mystery novel I didn’t enjoy. He’s one of my favorite writers and
I hope to read - and, in some cases, reread - all of his books in
2014 and 2015. Except more mentions of his books in future bloggy
Hard Case Books published some of the best and best-looking books
in the field. The Wrong Quarry is scheduled for release January 7,
2014. Look for this novel and other Hard Case books wherever cool
books are sold and from online sellers.
