Overview

THE BOX Quinn thought he had all the angles figured. After all, taking over the Organization should be a piece of cake for such a smart guy. But what he didn't figure was that boss Ryder would stuff him in a large crate with enough water and food to sustain him--and ship him around the world. When the freighter ports at the North African town of Okar, the captain of the boat decides its time to unload the box. It's starting to make noises, and it smells bad. What emerges from this wooden coffin looks barely human. But once Quinn recovers, he starts to look around. Is this a new chance at life, or an opportunity to cash in on another racket, halfway around the world? JOURNEY INTO TERROR There was a robbery that went bad and a girl was accidentally shot dead. Just an accident. But to John Bunting, it was the end of all his hopes. The girl was his fiance. What could he do? The cops weren't looking. He had to find the killers himself. And that's when he ran into Linda. She had lost her husband, had stopped caring. But she knew the men responsible for the killing. She could get Bunting close to them while he figured out who fired the actual shot. They were two wounded souls, one filled with hate, the other trying to find a reason to live. It's funny how much they needed each other.

Reviews

Peter Rabe was a kind of fictional surgeon. His novels are skillful operations performed with scalpel-like precision on the underbelly of American society -- raw, bloody, filled with tension and emotion, culminating in powerful and neatly sutured final scenes. He had few peers among noir writers of the 50s and 60s; he has few peers today. -Bill Pronzini As I've said before, Peter Rabe is one of the two major genre influences on my writing, Hammett being the other. His use of language, his handling of emotion, and his eye for the dramatic detail inside the normal were an inspiration for me, and never more so than in THE BOX, the opening section of which is my beau ideal for how to begin a story. -Donald E. Westlake . . . head and shoulders above most of his competition in the hard-boiled field. -Nassau Daily Tribune
