Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The miraculously revitalized career of master criminal Parker takes another turn for the worse in this vintage story by Richard Stark. Parker's in jail, and it's not just any jail. It's the correctional center, where people without bail stay before and during a trial. There's no long-term population, so Parker's first problem is how to build a string among these strangers. But once the connections are made, Parker is able to put himself on the outside, where he gets involved in a heist set up by one of his co-conspirators. Now Parker is on the run and not sure who to trust. And as luck would have it, he realizes the solution to all his problems just might come by breaking his old friend Ed Mackey's girlfriend out of jail. Two jailbreaks in less than a month, and now Parker's mad.

Synopsis:

- BREAKOUT was published in Mysterious Press hardcover in 11/02. With a "Bear in Mind" mention in the "New York Times, starred reviews from "Publishers Weekly and "Booklist, and a steady stream of high praise from other publications, BREAKOUT reconfirms Richard Stark as one of the preeminent authors of crime noir fiction.- "Backflash (Mysterious Press,1998) and "Comeback (Mysterious Press, 1997), both Parker novels, were named "New York Times Notable Books of the Year.- With the backing of the creative team that developed "The Sopranos, Oz, and "Six Feet Under, the author is developing a pilot for his own original HBO series.- The FX network has acquired the Parker novels for a possible series, and Joel Silver Productions has bought film rights to "Backflash (Mysterious Press, 1998), "The Man With the Getaway Face (Mysterious Press, 1998), and "Butcher's Moon (Random House, 1974).

Synopsis:

One Way in. No Way Out. Even master criminals make mistakes. Parker's most recent sin has landed him in prison, where it's only a matter of time before the law uncovers his real name-and the extent of his astounding criminal career. To escape, Parker must ignore one of his cardinal rules and take on the only partners he can find. Yet his fellow convicts demand a price: the moment they get free, they want Parker to help them break into a former armory now storing a mother lode of precious gems. For Parker, the plan includes too many people, too many complications, and too many weak links. But with a potential big payoff just ahead, Parker is willing to jump-out of the frying pan, into the fire, and onto a scheme that will soon pit every man against every other. Just the way Parker likes it...
