Publisher's Summary

Crime fiction readers know Quarry - the ruthless killer for hire from Max Allan Collins' acclaimed novels - but where did Quarry's story start? For the first time ever, the best-selling author of Road to Perdition takes us back to the beginning, revealing the never-before-told story of Quarry's first job: infiltrating a college campus and eliminating a professor whose affair with one of his beautiful, young students is the least of his sins.

The First Quarry

Great novel by Max Allan Collins and great performance by Stefan. As you can tell by the title this is Quarry’s first contract under the broker. It involves Quarry doing a stakeout of a college professor to get back a manuscript. All sorts of twists and turns follow. It is one of my favorite Quarry adventures.

It was entertaining to hear Quarry's first job.

I like the way some of the original Quarry books have become period pieces, while others like The First Quarry subtly self aware if being period pieces. Collins is always an entertaining writer.

This reminded me of the old M. Spalain books

This is one of THE best mystery books i have read in years...the sarcasm and addressing the reader is a unique touch...the story is excellent and the performance is superb
