BIG MAN ON CAMPUS

Crime fiction readers know Quarry, the ruthless killer-for-hire, from Max Allan Collins' acclaimed novels -- most recently THE LAST QUARRY, which told the story of the assassin's final assignment (and was the basis for the feature film The Last Lullaby).

But where did Quarry's story start? For first time ever, the best-selling author ofROAD 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...

“I had learned to kill in the jungle of Vietnam and figured I could kill in the zoo of America just as easily.”
“Society sanctioned killing strangers in war, but didn’t like it when you took out some bastard you knew who richly deserved it.”

That is Quarry. And this is his 'first' story. "Some first job. Six kills but not the guy I was hired for. Two beautiful women and more sex than I'd had in the last six months. I'd survived..." And it kept my interest and entertained me enough that I read it in one day! Good ending too!

And Sambos restaurant!?! Man, we had one of those racist places in my hometown growing up. I cannot believe they were allowed! WTF?!? ( )

Quarry's first job as a hitman, many surprises

This was my first foray into Collins's 'Quarry' series, which was recommended to me by someone who knew I liked the 'Parker' series by Richard Stark/Donald Westlake.

Decent enough as a hardboiled thriller goes. Maybe not the best place to start the series (it's the story of Quarry's first job, even though it was written somewhere in the middle of the run). Reads quick, perfect for my commute. Will read more from the series as I find them. ( )

Gonna have a hard time finding a good noir series to follow this one (when I finish it in a few days). ( )

This book takes place in the midwest -in the Quad Cities of Iowa to be precise. And, it charts the beginnings of one fun to read assassin, a man known only as Quarry. He, as you probably know already, came back from risking his life in Vietnam to find his wife with another man, found the other man working on his car the next day and kicked the jack out, and went on to survive a rough trial but found himself jobless and miserable. He is recruited by the Broker, another man who only goes by one name, to do a hit on a college professor who is bedding the wrong undergraduate.

Told in the first person, it is just a terrific story and a great introduction to the Quarry character. It takes the reader into the small midwestern towns and back into the seventies. The action never lets up in this book and I couldn't put it down till I reached the furious ending. I highly recommend it. Hard Case Crime has found another winner! ( )
