The Hard Case Crime stories are really fun and they remind me of crime stories like Dick Tracy. The stories are from the Pulp era, an era that made crime novels what they are today. The women are deadly and the men mean business. I like that combination and that’s made Hard Case Crime stories something I seek out. Each story is a standalone book, but each has that edginess that you expect in this genre.
I loved the action and the "surveillance" tactics in The Wrong Quarry. Quarry is a hitman and he takes out the bad guys. However he senses something is not right and has to decide who to kill and who to let live.
The ending was a good fit for the characters.
Overall this was a great book and I am giving The Wrong Quarry 4 stars.
A HIT. AND A MISS.
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?
