review 1: I love these books. I've been a Max Allan Collins fan since he personally wrote me and sent me 5 Quarry books. These books are trashy fun and quick reads. Think, James Patterson without any bullshit. This book is no different but provides a little mystery this time around wit...

review 1: Definitely one of the better books of the Hard Case Crime Series. The author makes good use of the flippant, sarcastic and lean language which is so typical for this kind of crime novel. Although giving his character some background, he starts right in the middle of the story whi...

review 1: This book has an interesting, but highly improbable premise. J.C. Harrow, a former small town Iowa sheriff and current criminalist for the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation, is on special assignment at the Iowa State Fair. He is assigned to monitor the crowd during a Pres...

review 1: I read a couple thrillers every week and most of the time I don't see any reason to review them. They're fun for me, but not noteworthy. I'm reviewing this one because of the unusual premise: the hero foils a plot to assassinate JFK -- in Chicago!-- at the end of October, 1963. ...

review 1: Criminal Minds is one of the best shows on TV in my opinion. The cast meshes well, it only got better when Mandy Patinkin left and Joe Montagna came into play.That being said, I expected quite a bit from a book, and it would be tough to re-create that cast dynamic as well.Max Al...

review 1: Chronologically this is the first Quarry book, but was one of the last written. I was not sure how to approach this as I am often torn between reading books in chronological order and order published. In the end I decided to follow the advice of a few postings and read this one f...

review 1: Another good, quick read. I really love the Quarry books. Perfect HCC material. Quarry's toughness, practicality & wit are irresistible. His amoral attitude is quite refreshing in our PC world.I've heard there will be another Quarry novel published by HCC in 2010. I'm lookin...

review 1: I am a huge fan of this TV Show, I love the fact that it delves into the "why" of the crime rather than only the "how" as other police dramas do. I am greatly interested in what motivates people to do things - especially because I believe that at the heart all humans are basicall...

review 1: I have read all the Keller, Quarry and Parker books except for this, the most recent. It’s good. What is it about “hit man” books that attracts us (or me anyway?) I suspect it’s the lifestyle, the hunt, the tracking, etc. The Walter Mitty quality of it all. I think it would be g...

review 1: I debated long and hard before posting 5 stars on this. In the end, I gave it 5 because of the great writing, great characters, and great plot that create a seamless mystery thriller. There's only 1 thing that, for me, detracted and made me dither over the star rating, and I won'...
