Quarry doesn't kill just anybody these days. He restricts himself to targeting other hitmen, availing his marked-for-death clients of two services: eliminating the killers sent after them, and finding out who hired them…and then removing that problem as well. So far he's rid of the world of nobody who would be missed. But this time he finds himself zeroing in on the grieving family of a missing cheerleader. Does the hitman's hitman have the wrong quarry in his sights?

But It Feels So Right
If you love your crime fiction and thrillers in the hard-boiled variety with a healthy dose of sardonic wit thrown in, you'll love this.
At first glance, the characters might look like cardboard cutouts from some run-of-the-mill dimestore novel, but Collins breathes life into each of them in a way that makes all the quick-witted dialogue and snappy one-liners feel completely genuine.
A really good job in capturing Quarry's voice that really complemented Collins' writing. Easy enough to get caught up in the story as if being told in the dingy corner of a bar by Quarry himself. The female voices were a bit of a stretch, but nothing to the point of distraction.
Oh, there were a couple of moments that caused outright laughter with Quarry's witty observations, plus a surprise that knocked me on my heels towards the end.
My first Quarry experience turned out to be a memorable one, so now I need to go back and start reading--or listening to--the backlist.
