Book Description
 

THE WRONG QUARRY by Max Allan Collins - SIGNED FIRST EDITION TRADE PAPER BOOK

See all titles by Max Allan Collins.

Collins's 10th noir featuring John Quarry is easily his best—a sharp-edged thriller with more than one logical but surprising twist. Quarry used to work as a hit man on assignments arranged for him by a middleman known as the Broker, but that work ended when Quarry had to take him out. Making use of the Broker's records, he has begun a new phase in his killing career. He identifies the targets of other hit men, and then, for a price, offers to take them out on behalf of the intended victims. And, for an extra fee, Quarry removes the threat entirely by killing the person who ordered the hit. The early 1980s find Quarry doing exactly that in the "Little Vacationland" of Stockwell, Mo. He learns that the local dance instructor, Roger Vale, is to be killed because he's suspected of murdering a teenage girl, and offers to save his life, for a price. The lean prose, brisk pacing, and clever plotting are a winning combination.
