Quarry Audiobook

Quarry: A Quarry Novel, Book 1

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 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 hitman's hitman have the wrong quarry in his sights?

A hit. And a miss.

    "Collins should be better known"

    I found the Quarry series by accident, and wow, I'm glad I did. Although Collins wrote them in the '70s, they are far less dated than many more famous from that time. Despite the sexist pulp covers on each one, sexism is not a problem here, at least for me.

    Quarry resembles Richard Stark's (Donald Westlake's) Parker, but I think the writing is better and the character more likable, at least for a hit man. Well done. Perfect narrator.

    The only problem is, each book is pretty short. Even so, I think each one is worth a credit. I plan to listen to them all at least twice.

    "Glad I found this series"

    It's the second Quarry book I listen to, the first having been the prequel to the séries. I'm surprised I'd never heard of this author before, he does know how to write a crime novel, thanks Audible for bringing this to life. If you like the Keller series from Lawrence Block, Butcher's Boy from Perry or Victor The Assassin from Wood you'll definitely like this one too.
