When he's not carrying out heists with his friend Parker, Alan Grofield runs a small theater in Indiana. But putting on shows costs money, and jobs have been thin lately, which is why Grofield agreed to fly to Las Vegas to hear Andrew Myers' plan to knock over a brewery in upstate New York.

Unfortunately, Myers' plan is insane, so Grofield walks out on him. Myers isn't a man you walk out on, and his retribution culminates in an act of unforgivable brutality. That's when Grofield decides to show him what a disciple of Parker is capable of. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bhr1630 | 2/10/2014

    " This book seemed to jump around to much with too much lag time in the middle. I enjoy this genre but this one was disappointing to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 2/9/2014

    " Westlake never fails to tell a good story, and this is one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry Webber | 1/22/2014

    " One of my favorite Richard Stark novels. Perfect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harding Young | 1/13/2014

    " I love the Alan Grofield character. The artist and criminal intertwined, with an interesting moral ambiguity. The book is explosive, like bombs blowing out a bank safe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy Nieradko | 1/4/2014

    " Intricate, and interesting plot and characters, but the best thing about this book was the useful tips for up and coming criminals. It really made it seem more real, not many writers can drag you into a story like that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Borshuk | 1/4/2014

    " Passable Westlake crime yarn. Some amusing self-consciously literary moments along the way, but I doubt I'll remember this one beyond next week. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ed | 12/20/2013

    " A reprint of a 1962 issue from Random House, 361 is a noir with a hardboiled tone. Westlake's seamless plotline, deft dialogue, and smart pacing. 361 is another brisk-paced satisfying read from the folks at Hard Case Crime. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Dixon | 12/8/2013

    " Okay story, very dumb ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 11/25/2013

    " I love that these old Donald Westlake / Richard Stark books are being re-issued. Also, old Lawrence Block titles. Those guys are terrific. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 11/18/2013

    " The last and best of the Alan Grofield novels, and among the best Stark books overall. Stark/Westlake packs a lot of story into 218 pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denise M. | 5/25/2013

    " AKA: Alan Marshall, Alan Marsh, James Blue, Ben Christopher, Edwin West, John B. Allan, Curt Clark, Tucker Coe, P.N. Castor, Timothy J. Culver, J. Morgan Cunningham, Samuel Holt, Judson Jack Carmichael, Richard Stark, Donald E. Westlake "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 2/26/2013

    " This is only the second Grofield novel I've read (if you don't count his appearances in the Parker novels) but it was definitely the better of the two. Great action and suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corey | 4/12/2012

    " O sleek little fast-paced caper noir, how I love you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bradley Ewan | 4/4/2012

    " Richard Stark a.k.a. Donald Westlake. Classic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elijah Kinch Spector | 2/1/2012

    " Marketed as a kind of spinoff of the Parker series (really he's only mentioned once) this is a weaker Stark (or Westlake) offering. Fun while it lasted, but pretty forgettable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 1/2/2011

    " Passable Westlake crime yarn. Some amusing self-consciously literary moments along the way, but I doubt I'll remember this one beyond next week. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 11/22/2009

    " Grofield rather than Parker is the operative in this Richard Stark novel. Grofield has to recover from a scammer being scammed, and save his theater in the process. "

    " AKA: Alan Marshall, Alan Marsh, James Blue, Ben Christopher, Edwin West, John B. Allan, Curt Clark, Tucker Coe, P.N. Castor, Timothy J. Culver, J. Morgan Cunningham, Samuel Holt, Judson Jack Carmichael, Richard Stark, Donald E. Westlake "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 12/12/2008

    " Richard Stark (aka Donald Westlake) has written an excellent novel exploring the lives of professional criminals. Not a word is wasted with every suspenseful scene described in plain, no-frills language. I felt like I could picture every character and setting just as Stark meant it to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ed | 11/9/2008

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce | 10/9/2007

    " A fast-paced and satisfying hard crime tale. Grofield, protagonist and thief, emerges as a fascinating and sympathetic character. "

    " "the cryptic little title of this grabbed my interest from the gitgo: lemons never lie. i don't like flipping through a book before i actually sit down to read it so the title tauted me until i began. "
