The ruthless professional killer known as Quarry long ago disappeared into a well-earned retirement. But now a media magnate has lured the restless hit man into tackling one last lucrative assignment. The target is an unlikely one - why, Quarry wonders, would anyone want a beautiful young librarian dead? And why in hell does he care? On the 13th anniversary of the enigmatic assassin's first appearance, best-selling author Max Allan Collins brings him back for a dark and deadly mission, where the last quarry may turn out to be Quarry himself.
