Conveniently, The First Quarry isn't a bad place to start in the Quarry timeline, as it takes place before all the other entries (about a half dozen total) in the series.

I love when the prolific Max Allan Collins writes an original mystery or crime novel, as opposed to the many movie novelization/tie-in books he's been doing the past several years.
