The Man With The Getaway Face [AKA The Steel Hit], by Richard Stark (Allison and Busby, 1986)

After having plastic surgery, Parker agrees to an armoured car robbery. Lean noir thriller from a modern master of the genre. Not a wasted word across its 150-odd pages. My first in a series read-through of Donald E Westlake’s Stark/Parker novels.
