Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Baron is clever—perhaps too clever. He sits on the heavily protected island of Cockaigne, a mini-Las Vegas forty miles out in the Gulf of Mexico, raking in as much as $250,000 some nights, laughing at the Outfit, who cant collect their cut. Now the Outfit can no longer stand the loss of face—not to mention the loss of revenue. Thats why theyve sent for Parker, who knows that the line between success and failure on this score would be exactly the length of the barrel of a .38. Double-crosses and double-dealings from the word go, not to mention the arrival of Parkers flamboyant friend Grofield, make this one of Richard Starks best.

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.
