* CompleteMonster: In the {{novelization}} by Max Allan Collins, [[PsychoForHire Harlen Maguire]] is a death-loving hitman who spends his free time photographing murders, many of which he himself perpetrates. [[EstablishingCharacterMoment Introduced]] killing a wounded man in a street alley, Maguire is then hired to track down Michael O'Sullivan and his son, Michael Jr., happily hoping to murder them both and add them to his massive "[[CreepySouvenir gallery of death]]". Slaughtering an entire cafe, murdering one of his own partners, and killing an innocent couple along the way, Maguire mortally wounds [[spoiler:O'Sullivan and attempts to photograph his dying moments]] before moving onto Michael Jr., even after the contract on the duo has been called off.

** Blow-by-blow account: Michael Sr. frantically tries to call home, but the phone is off the hook. The camera cuts to Annie drying Peter off after a bath, then again to the upstairs hall. The bathroom door opens, and a figure wearing a long coat and fedora enters, drawing a gun on mother and son. The camera moves back and forth between the pistol and the man's eyes as Annie screams, then outside as Michael Jr. arrives home and sees two flashes inside his house, along with two gunshots. Getting off his bike, Michael Jr. sprints to the door... just as the killer reaches it. Michael Jr. freezes to the spot as the killer removes his hat and straightens his hair. It's Connor. Without seeing Michael, he opens the door, takes a swig from a flask, and leaves.

** The film was the final film appearance of Creator/PaulNewman (not including his [[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} voice-only acting]] which came after), making this a Meta Tear-Jerker.

** John Rooney's role in the end serves as this. He knows already that his son has been embezzling from him for years and it's hinted that Michael was closer family to him than Connor ever could be. However, despite realizing that Connor's death is imminent, [[HonorBeforeReason he refuses to give him up]], instead imploring for Michael to leave with his own son while he can. When Michael eventually returns to kill Rooney (as well as his entire entourage), the old man can [[FaceDeathWithDignity only solemnly remark that he's glad that Michael would be the one to kill him]].
