Parker sets up a loose network of associates to disrupt Mob operations. The third in the sequence finds Stark on fine form; a fast-moving yarn of multiple heists and revenge. Westlake/Stark as laconic as ever.
An amoral thief tracks down the couple that left him for dead. Fast-paced, convincing noir with an irresistible anti-hero at its centre. Westlake/Stark’s first Parker novel zings with terse promise, and doesn’t waste a moment.
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.
