"Collins makes us root for Quarry, or he draws us so completely into Quarry’s world that rooting for anybody becomes beside the poin." - Booklist
"It’s got old school action and a fast paced energy that makes it hard to even think about putting the book down." - Geek Hard
"Pick up “Quarry” by Max Allan Collins if you want a quick, squirmy read, sure to entertain you as well as any classic pulp shoot-em-up." - Noir Whale
"The Quarry series is fast-paced, sexy, violent and entertaining." - BookReporter
"Pulpishly brutal and clever, Quarry makes for an addictive introduction to one of crime fiction’s most enduring and engaging hard-boiled sociopaths. Long may this amoral son-of-a-bitch run . . ." - BlogCritics
"the series is made unforgettable by the main character himself, who may be a killer but not a psychopath, insightful enough to know when something is wrong in the story he has been told and a moral compass to righten matters, as well as tight plots, tersely vivid descriptions and crisp dialogues." - Business Standard
