About the Author:

Max Allan Collins created killer-for-hire Quarry almost forty years ago as a student at the University of Iowa Writers Workshop. An admirer of Donald Westlake's Parker novels, Collins decided to go Westlake one better, featuring a first-person narration not by a mere criminal but by a professional hitman. The result is a cult favorite among fans of hard-boiled fiction. The first five titles in the long-running series are being reissued by Perfect Crime Books, with new introductions by the Author.

From Publishers Weekly:

The familiar trope of a killer picking off the inhabitants of a snowbound house gets new life in this reissue of Collins's fourth novel featuring hit man Quarry (after Quarry's Deal). Quarry returns from Vietnam to find his wife in bed with another man. After dropping a car on her lover, he finds himself unemployable. His proficiency at killing interests a middleman known as the Broker, who runs a murder-for-hire operation. After the Broker himself is killed, Quarry uses his list of targets to reimagine the business: Quarry will alert the intended victims of their situation and offer to guard them. That new venture leads him to the Wisconsin home of Jerry Castile, a prominent director of pornographic films who's hoping to shift to more legitimate work, and who's rumored to have directed snuff films. Castile accepts Quarry's offer of protection, but with the crew of his current movie trapped inside by a snowstorm, bodies begin to pile up. Collins maintains knife-edge suspense throughout and tosses in some surprising twists, while again making his stone-cold killer of a protagonist sympathetic. (Feb.)\n
