Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The boat is stuffed with money. The money is stuffed into bags. And the plan is full of holes. For Parker, going aboard a riverboat gambling casino, under the guise of a visiting politician, seemed like a good idea at the time. Then the heist of a lifetime turned into a very bad bet. Parker has the money in the bag, but faces the getaway from hell. Because somebody wants Parker — for his money and his life.

Review:

"No need to lament a golden age of hard-boiled writing; it's right here, now." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A solid and entertaining addition to the series." Library Journal

Review:

"[A] dazzling crime caper...steel-nerved dialogue." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"[T]he fastest 300 pages you're likely to read this year." Kirkus Reviews

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.
