Maxim Jakubowski's view...

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

Another fast-paced tale featuring a hitman as its hero, Quarry's Choice is actually the eleventh volume in a highly popular series by one of US crime fiction's most experienced veterans (and creator of The Road to Perdition, which all filmgoers will fondly remember). On this occasion, we return to Quarry's early years in a case where he is called upon to investigate who is attempting to murder his own employer, the Broker. A violent man and a Vietnam Vet, Quarry is an unstoppable killing machine and the fun is not to take the mayhem too seriously. Like Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer, the adventures of which Collins has continued writing as heir to the bloody Spillane tradition, this is a form of cartoon violence set against a small-town America background and just great entertainment. For Jack Reacher fans who want more fisticuffs and gunfights.

But in this wide-open city - with sin everywhere, and betrayal around every corner - Quarry must make the most dangerous choice of his deadly career: who to kill?

Reviews

Collins is in fine form here...The humor is black, the tone is dark, and the outlook is bleak, but the novel is ultimately uplifting, as you quickly find yourself rooting for this very bad, very violent man. - Mystery Scene Max Allan Collins has outdone himself. Again - Noir Journal Quarry s Choice, moves at a speed just slightly over the limit like a smooth oiled literary machine with enough pick up and power to carry the reader to a damn satisfying finale. - Pulp Fiction If you are a fan of hard boiled fiction, I heartily recommend Max Allan Collins Quarry! - Expert Comics This is a terrific hard-boiled series; read just one, and you will look forward to the next installment or finding the earlier books. -Book Reporter Quarry's Choiceis Quarry's masterpiece, a savage, twist-rich, sexy, wry and relentless tale of bad guys and even much worse bad guys. - Ed Gorman
