Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hit and Run....In New York there was a contract on his life. In Nebraska there was a plastic surgeon guarded by a punch-drunk fighter. And somewhere in New Jersey there was a red armored car stuffed with money. Parker, his appearance altered, hadn't changed a bit: he was going to take the little red wagon down.

But there was a catch. There was always a catch. This one's name was Alma, a big, busty woman with anger etched onto her face and a plan to cross Parker and his crew. Now the questions were: Who was in it with Alma? And after the stealing, the shooting, and the stabbing stopped-who would be alive to make a getaway?

Review:

"To me, Richard Stark is the Prince of Noir." Martin Cruz Smith

Synopsis:

Master thief Parker comes to a plastic surgeon in Nebraska with a face that the Outfit — the New York syndicate — wants to decorate with a bullet. But nothing can keep Parker away from his old life of crime — and the major heist of an armored car somewhere in New Jersey.

About the Author

Richard Stark is one of the preeminent authors — and inventors — of noir crime fiction. Stark's recent Parker novels Comeback and Backflash were selected as New York Times Notable Books of the Year. His first novel, The Hunter, became the classic 1967 movie Point Blank. Thirty years later The Hunter was adapted again by Hollywood, in the hit Mel Gibson movie Payback. Richard Stark is also, at times, mystery Grand Master Donald E. Westlake.
