He collects money from intended victims, preventing their deaths by taking out the teams engaged for the purpose.

Quarry’s approach is purely professional. He identifies the first member of the team who arrives merely to observe the target’s habits. When he passes the information to the second, the active member of the team, Quarry then removes both as threats. His business model then has him offer, for an additional fee, to end any fear of further activity by ending the sponsor’s life so that the “contract” is nullified. And that’s when the fun begins.
Along the way, Quarry himself enjoys a lot of extracurricular action, as Max Allan Collins provides all kinds of implicit sex, not to mention violence. The long-running series has a style all its own, told in a voice that reflects Quarry as a thinking man’s murderer. The character, and thee novels in the series, are a throw-back to pulp fiction of yester-year and are reminiscent of Mickey Spillane.
