Publisher Description

Between Parker's 1961 debut and his return in the late 1990s, the world of crime changed considerably. Now fake IDs and credit cards had to be purchased from specialists; increasingly sophisticated policing made escape and evasion tougher; and, worst of all, money had gone digital—the days of cash-stuffed payroll trucks were long gone. Firebreak takes Parker to a palatial Montana "hunting lodge" where a dot-com millionaire hides a gallery of stolen old masters—which will fetch Parker a pretty penny if his team can just get it past the mansion's tight security. The forests of Montana are an inhospitable place for a heister when well-laid plans fall apart, but no matter how untamed the wilderness, Parker's guaranteed to be the most dangerous predator around.

Quotes

  • “Whatever Stark writes, I read. He’s a stylist, a pro, and I thoroughly enjoy his attitude.”

    - Elmore Leonard, New York Times bestselling author
  • “Parker…lumbers through the pages of Richard Stark’s noir novels scattering dead bodies like peanut shells…In a complex world [he] makes things simple.”

    - New York Times
  • “Parker is a true treasure…The master thief is back, along with Richard Stark.”

    - New York Times Book Review
  • “[Stark] 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
  • “Elmore Leonard wouldn’t write what he does if Stark hadn’t been there before. And Quentin Tarantino wouldn’t write what he does without Leonard…Old master that he is, Stark does all of them one better.”

    - Los Angeles Times
