Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"In this installment of Stark's Parker series, the inimitalbe detective finds himself chasing jewel thieves in West Palm Beach, Fla., only to end up fighting for his life when everything go awry. In this audio edition, narrator Mark Peckham delivers an underwhelming performance, reading with a steady pace and tone that match the novel, but fail to draw listeners into the story. Peckham treads the water, never losing himself in any of the colorful characters that pop up throughout the book. The result is a lackluster production — and for some, listening may even become a chore, particularly when all hope appears to be lost for Parker, and Peckham fails to alter his delivery in any meaningful way. A University of Chicago paperback." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

The basis for the movie PARKER, starring Jason Stratham and Jennifer Lopez.

Between Parkers 1961 debut and his return in the late 1990s, the world of crime changed considerably. Now fake IDs and credit cards had to be purchased from specialists; increasingly sophisticated policing made escape and evasion tougher; and, worst of all, money had gone digital—the days of cash–stuffed payroll trucks were long gone.

In Flashfire, Parkers in West Palm Beach, competing with a crew that has an unhealthy love of explosions. When things go sour, Parker finds himself shot and trapped—and forced to rely on a civilian to survive.

About the Author

Richard Stark, a.k.a. Donald E. Westlake (1933–2008), wrote dozens of novels under his own name and a rainbow of other pseudonyms. Many of his books have been adapted for film, most notably The Hunter, which became the 1967 noir Point Blank, and the 1999 smash Payback.
