Praise For Quarry in the Black

"Retro pulpy pleasure..." - Kirkus

"Series fans will cheer as Quarry bests his opponents with commendable ease." - Publisher's Weekly

"QUARRY IN THE BLACK is highly recommended to both devoted followers of the series and those just discovering it. It is a noteworthy addition to the expanding series, and another triumph for one of crime fiction’s most prolific and creative practitioners." - Bookgasm

"Bullets fly, bodies fall and in the end, Quarry, as ever, unmasks the truth for all its sweet bitterness." - Pulp Fiction Reviews

"Quarry in the Black is full of steamy sex, seedy dialogue, and quick turns. The political threads of this book are reminiscent of the current American political struggles making this throwback a timely read. Quarry in the Black is a great introduction for people looking to get into the Quarry series and it works as a standalone novel. Another strong title from Hard Case Crime." - Crime Fiction Lover
