Storyline

Memphis, Tennessee, 1972. Mac Conway and his friend Arthur have just returned home after serving in Vietnam. They reconnect with their families and try to find jobs. However, work is hard to come by for Vietnam vets. Conway gets contacted by a man known simply as The Broker. He recruits hitmen for assignments and believes that Conway would be ideal for this sort of work. Conway is reluctant, but is drawn in once he discovers that Arthur has already accepted a similar offer from The Broker. The Broker gives Conway a code name - Quarry. Written by grantss

Trivia

Quarry was created in 1971 while author Max Allan Collins was a student at the Iowa Writer's Workshop, and later appeared in four novels between 1976 and 1977, with a 5th (and supposedly final) book appearing in 1987. However, in 2006 publisher Charles Ardai of Hard Case Crime appealed to Collins to write a another Quarry novel, which eventually lead to a new series of books featuring the character. As of 2016, HCC has published 7 additional books about the hit man. See more »

Finally loggined into IMDb to give this gem the rating it deserves
24 September 2016 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Cinemax have outdone themselves with this one. Downbeat, gritty and violent drama with a stellar cast that explores a 'heroes' return home from Vietnam and his struggle to find a purpose in life. My new favourite show, was hooked after the first episode. Hopefully this one gets the recognition it deserves, Cinemax did well with Banshee and Strike Back but this is a very different show - much more grounded and all the better for it. At the time of writing, ratings not so good for the show. Finally decided after years of lurking to log in and write a review for something that so very much deserves to be seen. Check it out if you like character driven gritty crime drama.
