    One thought on “Quarry's Vote”

    1. The fifth installment of the Quarry books starts with a retired Quarry married with a blond pregnant wife, life seems to be good and mundane for this former hitman. He is somewhat annoyed as somebody comes and visits him to offer him a million dollar for one hit, a political hit. Being retired Quarry turns the job down also because his original mentor had advised him not to engage into any hit with political implications. His negative answer does have consequences as well as his pregnant wife an [...]

    2. Good story of Quarry getting sucked back into his old job. Fairly predictable overall, but fun nonetheless. Never mess with Quarry. He's not a very good detective, but he's not stupid & he's never afraid to use violence to solve a problem. The ending was especially good, as was the political commentary. Yes, definitely one of the best overall & Collins explains that it is one of his favorites in the afterword.Unfortunately, this was renamed from Primary Target & republished by Hard C [...]

    3. Quarry is retired from the business, runs a hotel, and has a young pregnant wife. One day, a man offers Quarry a one million dollar contract to kill a presidential candidate. Quarry refuses and several days later, men kill his wife, their unborn child, and his wife's brother. With everything taken from him, Quarry goes looking for whomever wanted to hire him to do the hit and settle things permanently!Primary Target was short but really good. Quarry does what he does best, acting cool and calcul [...]

    4. I read this before in Quarry's Greatest Hits. The full novel is in there along with several short stories, supposedly. It seemed to me this was a bit more fleshed out, but that could be my poor memory. It was still a fun read & quick. Quarry actually shows some emotion besides being pissed off & there are twists & turns. The ending isn't exactly stunning, but nicely done.

    5. This Quarry comeback novel in the series was different than the first 4, Quarry himself was in a different place, different life and showed emotions i didnt expect from him. I enjoyed how Collins used the political scene in the story, the satire about the parties,their ideologies and the egomanic, pretentious smooth talker candidate looking for the popular vote. It was better written, crisper prose, characters than early books, it will be interesting to read the books,short stories after this no [...]

    6. PROTAGONIST: Quarry, hitmanSERIES: #5RATING: 3.75WHY: Quarry hasn’t been in the hitman business for 10 years. He’s leading a quiet life in Iowa, married and owner of a local inn. When someone offers him a million dollars to kill a political extremist, he turns him down. That's when his idyllic life is shattered, and he's back in the business. He needs to find the man who tried to hire him as well as the person who is behind the contract. And he also finds himself dealing with another hitman [...]

    7. From the publisher: Now retired and happily married, Quarry turns down a million-dollar contract to assassinate a presidential candidate. It’s not the sort of assignment you can just walk away from without consequences - - but coming after Quarry has consequences, too. The longest-running series from Max Allan Collins, author of “Road to Perdition” and the first ever to feature a hitman as the main character, the Quarry novels tell the story of a paid assassin with a rebellious streak and [...]

    8. Great book ! Found it in the mystery section of my local library. Quarry turns down a million dollar hit on a potential presidential candidate. That's when the fun starts. Lots of plot twists and wry black humor that makes it a Quarry novel. Seek this out if your a fan.

    9. Another excellent addition to the Hard Case collection. Quarry is now one of my favorite characters in fiction. This novel, a much anticipated return, picks up right where the first ones left off. On to the next one in this remarkable series.

    10. Another solid entry in the Quarry series but does lack the expected sizzle from the more current entries.

    11. Back in form. Nicely conceptualised and executed. The plot moves quickly, we understand the ramifications and Quarry's responses. One of the best of the series

    12. Ten years have passed since Quarry's last job, but he finds out that a hitman is never completely retired.

    13. Trumped!MAC's 2010 Quarry is a bit different. It's a revenge thriller, with large helpings of Parker (Point Blank) thrown in. Now forty and a bit porky, Quarry has settled down from his life as hitman into possible family man. Then it all goes pear-shaped. Quarry is offered a 'political hit' for a million dollars, turns it down, but those that offered now see him as a loose end - so they return and kill, mistakenly, people close to him. Big mistake. He finds an interesting, Donald Trump -like po [...]

    14. In Quarry's Vote, originally published as Primary Target, Quarry is retired and running a small motel/resort on a small lake in rural Wisconsin. He lets himself drink and get pudgy over the long winters and has even married a sweet young blonde girl, who he originally had shacked up with as a one-night stand, but it morphed into something else after her parents were killed in a car wreck. It is an idyllic life and, in his early thirties, Quarry is embarking on a calm life. Only, and you knew thi [...]

    15. "Quarry's Vote" by Max Allan Collins is the fifth book in the "Quarry" series. And, as they say, it's a game changer. The author and his titular hitman pick up where they left offten years later (meaning 1987). Much has changed. Quarry is married and chubby and pushing 40, with a hot younger wife and a baby on the way. He's very much retired and no longer chasing after other hired killers. But there is a sudden awakening from this American Dream.A million dollar political assassination is almost [...]

    16. Raw, unfiltered, disturbing, and humorous. They all describe what you could expect out of "Primary Target" Max Allan Collins is a mystery writer who is best known for his Nate Heller series of historical crime fiction novels. Before Heller, Collins created the character "Quarry," a Vietnam veteran hit-man who's ice-cold demeanor and scathing wit made him someone that you'd best want to avoid meeting in person.But in print, it's a different story. Readers should not be surprised if they find them [...]

    17. In this one, Quarry has been retired for a number of years. He owns a small restaurant, has a wife who's pregnant, and is contented with life.Then one day a car pulls up and a fancily dressed man gets out. He knows who Quarry really is and wants him to do a job for him. A million dollars to hit a political candidate, a right wing nut, who's a thorn in the political machine and may influence the next Presidential election.Quarry refuses, knowing a political hit would likely come back on him, a li [...]

    18. This book is an oddity among the Quarry books, not part of the original, nor part of the latter books. It sits somewhere in between and that is exactly how it feels. While still entertaining I felt this one was off a bit from the quality of the other books in the series, especially the most recent books. From the beginning of the book we meet a version of Quarry that simply seemed a bit off to me. As the book progresses he returns to the quarry I am familiar with. Not jarring or destructive to t [...]

    19. #5 in the Quarry series. Finalist 1988 Macavity Award for Best Novel. The first 4 books in the series about a hitman were published in 1976. The 4, taken together, follow Quarry's complete career arc. Now, 11 years later, he is retired - but outside forces won't let the status stay quo.Quarry, a retired hitman, is offered a million dollars to come out of retirement and assassinate an extremist Presidential candidate. After his refusal, his wife and visiting brother-in-law (mistaken for Quarry) a [...]

    20. I like the Quarry series because it makes a good palate cleaner between more serious books.In this one Quarry is forced out of retirement.The style is matter of fact there is very little filler or clutter in the atory and of you like books about anti-heroes or killers that are the main character then this bookm and the series is a good one to kill a couple of hours.

    21. Written in 1987. The title should be changed to Prophetic Quarry. A political thriller about anarcissistic Tea Party-like candidate. The similarities to the current politicallandscape is striking. Highly recommended!

    22. Another solid entry in the Quarry series. This book has a more layered plot, with some political satire, than previous entries. Chronologically, it occurs three years after QUARRY IN THE MIDDLE And about a year before THE LAST QUARRY. .

    23. It's the softer side of Quarry this round, living the straight life, domesticated, earning an honest wage, until A top-notch entry in the series. Collins has fleshed out his series with enough sad back story to make this hit man almost forgivable for his actions.

    24. More like 2 1/2 stars. If you like your detectives hard-boiled, you can't do better than Quarry. The book is a reprint and the attitudes are horribly dated. Still, the plot and theme holds up. If you like this sort of thing, you'll like this book. very FPULP FICTION

    25. This book brings paid assassin Quarry back into action after marriage and retirement in a tragic way and he gets his revenge and then moves on to a new future - looking forward to the next book

    26. It was a quicker read than my dates indicate. I truly enjoy reading the Quarry novels, much like the Parker series.

    27. If a hit man turns down a job and you decide to kill him to cover your ass, make sure you kill him and not his pregnant wife. And you should not expect that he will not seek his form of justice.
