Every novel lover would agree that Max Allan Collins is a prolific contributor in the literature industry. Hardly would you go through the bulks of English literature and fail to come across the books of Max Allan even at a glance. He is an American mystery writer who was born on March 1948 and he has done much in the world of arts and entertainment.

Collins who has been a fan of Mickey Spillane (a mystery writer) has written many book series ever since which include; the Quarry series, Nolan series, Mallory series, Eliot Ness series among others. Many of the books expose mystery crimes that are usually committed secretly and talks more about the evil doings in the society. You will definitely enjoy reading the series.

Max Collins has also written comic books, screen plays, short stories and movie novelizations that have garnered the favor of many people globally. The book series are being updated up to now and they are becoming more famous as days pass by.

Let’s focus on the Quarry series which contains the earliest books of this writer. The Quarry is a series that unfolds the crime fiction in society with compelling fun. The Quarry series features a Vietnam vet who we are told that he learned his lessons while abroad. After the vet comes home, he starts earning a living from the work of a hitman as he gets commands from a man called the Broker and which is the title of the first book in the series.

In the first book The Broker, we come across Quarry who is a killer on hire. We see Quarry killing a man using his gun. This happens in the men’s room in the airport. What might be the reason of this killing? We are told that the shot man had taken something from his employer and he is on the cusp of escaping. However, Quarry is unhappy with the drug killings and he parts ways with his broker and takes another broker job. In his second job, he is hired by a homosexual killer by the name Boyd.

Majorly, in this book, max Collins concentrates in showing us all sorts of unpleasant killings and assassinations. The most astonishing part of the story is that Quarry takes other human beings as foolish people who otherwise don’t deserve to live. This is contrary to what we should expect of him. A man of his profession should not be like him.

In the second book in the series, The Broker’s Wife which is later named the Quarry’s list, we come across a fast and furious professional of an intruder which happens in the Quarry’s home. This happens a few months after the life of the broker was brought to an end. Quarry kills the first man to wake him up in the middle of the night and waits for the second one to come in. The back-up man who wants to get the information is grilled by the Quarry a thing which leads him to a one on one confrontation with the broker’s lawyer; Curtis Brooks and Ash. And who is Ash? This is a man which had partnered with Quarry when he started working for the Broker in the early stages.

Quarry is a cleaver man and he never throws caution to the winds. Collins tells us that he never forgets; especially someone who wants to kill him. Quarry is also keen to track down all the people involved in killing the broker and those who want to take over the broker’s business. He is keen to know why Ash stepped into the void that was left by the late Broker. Is it that Ash was behind the death of his Broker? Is it that he wants to take over the business completely? These are the questions that detective Quarry wants to get their answers. He is very keen to ensure that he knows the trick played Ash to ensure that he is not blackmailed.

Many books written by this prolific artist (Max Allan Collins) have made to TV shows and movies. For example, the Dark Angel TV series is one of the TV series that can take you off the couch easily. This famous series features the life of Max Guevara who is escaped from the covert government’s military facility. She is a super soldier. This series is filmed in Vancouver in the Lions gate. The first season was usually haired on Tuesdays in the United States of America. It is to no surprise that this first season won many awards and votes from the lovers of the arts and entertainment industry.

We cannot overlook the second season of the Dark Angel TV shows that has a lot of fiction in it. However, the show had suffered a poor rating and did not enjoy the favors enjoyed by the first series. This is due to the fact that this second season was moved to Fridays which was not according to the wish of many. However, the way events are unfolded in the series calls for your action. Unless you are not a fan, you should never miss this show because it will get you off the couch more often than not.

Max Collins is undeniably an artist of his own class. His books are worth your library and I am certain that you would love to read them again and again. The main character in the series provides what every fiction enthusiast will admire. Moreover, the episodes are woven in an artistic nature that will automatically get you off the couch. Therefore, if you had not read this book series before, it would be better to fetch your copies from the nearest supplier while the stock lasts.
