In a Midwestern city, Parker calmly tosses a firebomb through a plate-glass window, while some newfound partners in crime take down a nearby bank. Making their getaway in the confusion, the bank robbers tell him two things: that this heist was only seed money for a much gaudier one, and that Parker has to loan them his share of the take.

Now Parker is rampaging through the American South, taking on a new identity as he goes, and planning his own assault on his former partners' next target, a spectacular jewelry heist in Palm Beach. But Parker didn't count on one unfortunate detail. A very bad and very stupid man knows his true identity, and wants him dead.

    " Gripping crime / suspense tale with a "so that was the ending, huh?" conclusion. Overall enjoyable though! The first non-comical book I've read cover-to-cover in under 48 hours in years. "

    " For some reason, I thought that the Parker series wouldn't be as good after the twenty year hiatus. I really have no idea why I thought that. In fact, Backflash and Flashfire have been among the very best volumes. Also exciting to realize that Flashfire will be the basis of the in development Parker movie. "

    " Great pacing, fun story, lovely ride. This was my first Parker novel but I'm excited to have them to work my way through. "

    " I prefer protagonists with at least some admirable qualities. I think I'm done with this guy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jack G | 12/7/2013

    " A quick read that is put together with the same skill that Elmore Leonard brings to pacing and dialogue. Westlake writing as Stark has created a world that is face paced and a character in Parker that outthinks his challenges. Enjoyed this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sean McCoy | 10/7/2013

    " Richard Stark is becoming one of my all time favorite authors. This book starts off with something like three or four heists in a row. Pure amazing action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 9/29/2013

    " Richard Stark. Gritty. Well written. Flows beautifully and always leaves you wanting more. I've just recently bought a box set of his books to keep me going. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Damon | 7/1/2013

    " Good book. I zipped through most of it like I was watching a movie. It's an easy read, and I would definitely categorize it as "guilty pleasure" reading. A good old-fashioned crime caper. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Mock | 12/17/2012

    " This Parker entry from 2000 is a rip-roaring good time! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie Sheffield | 11/13/2012

    " I've never been disappointed by a Parker book, and this one was no exception...fast and tight and nasty. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 11/4/2012

    " Probably one of the lesser Parker books. It's definitely still fun, but, unlike previous books in the series, there's nothing in the setting or the circumstances that really grabs me, not a problem in earlier Parker books. Still a great read, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 11/28/2011

    " This and the other four Parker novels I just added are what was available at the library. I read them all in one three-day blast so I don't quite remember which is which, just that they are all very entertaining and bleak, not an ordinary combination. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Davidg | 5/11/2011

    " A fun, light read. Perhaps not as good as Comeback, which is the first Parker book I read. There's a little too much use of coincidence to save Parker's skin at the last moment - I know it isn't meant to be believable, realistic fiction, but there was a lot to accept. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert kennedy | 10/27/2010

    " like the character. easy to follow. nice twists. "

    " Number 19 this title is, and yet I haven't read the first one yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 11/22/2009

    " You just can't keep a good man down. Parker gets crossed, and he crosses back to get the guys, and get himself out of the sights of law-enforcement, to move on to the next caper. "
