Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here's Parker — planning to steal the entire payroll of an Air Force base in upstate New York, with help from Marty Fusco, fresh out of the pen, and a smart aleck finance clerk named Devers. Holed up with family in a scrappy little town, the heisters prepare for the risky job by trying to shorten the odds. But the ice is thinner than Parker likes to think — and Marty's ex-wife is much more complicated.

Review:

"Parker is refreshingly amoral, a thief who always gets away with the swag." Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Westlake knows precisely how to grab a reader, draw him or her into the story, and then slowly tighten his grip until escape is impossible." Washington Post Book World

The late Donald Westlake wrote over 20 novels (as Richard Stark) about the coolly efficient and remorseless thief Parker. He was recently played in a film (cleverly called "Parker") by Jason "Crank" Statham.
