The good guys in a new African nation were missing a treasury full of diamonds. The nation's corrupt leader had stashed the rocks somewhere in New York City. Now the good guys needed a specialist to get their diamonds back. So they came to the best in the business: Parker. Only the three mysterious tough guys came to Parker, too. They figured three hands filled with .38s could convince him to pass up this international gem game. But leaning on Parker was like pressuring a box of TNT with a short fuse.

Listener Opinions

    " Donald Westlake (writing under a psuedonym) lets his protagonist off easy with a girlfriend far too wholesome and devoted to be anything but complete fantasy. Because of her and a dearth of levity throughout, the book reads like an author paying the rent. This is part of a running series about Parker, a heist planner whose criminality is treated as if it were simply another career choice for the savvy sixties man, and I can imagine that Westlake had lost interest. After the first ten pages or so, I certainly did. "

    " Another enjoyable Parker adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 11/22/2013

    " Interesting concept, where Parker isn't actually directly involved in the heist; at least not until the usual double crosses start... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 10/31/2013

    " Parker consults on a job for a third-world country crew, but gets dragged into the score when wife Claire is captured for leverage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 10/21/2013

    " Writing this two year's later I barely remember the plot however in general I like all of Stark/Westlake's Parker novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett | 9/10/2013

    " Parker gets a little soft in this one as his woman is threatened and he befriends some hapless agents of a struggling African country. But a nice twist on the usual format. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew Nette | 7/13/2013

    " Hey, its Stark aka Westlake doing Parker so of course it is good. It is not the best of the series but it has some seriously entertaining moments. Westlake's take on sixties post-colonial politics and Parker's interaction with it is particularly good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 6/29/2013

    " Nobody steals Parker's money in this book. I'm not saying nobody steals anything from Parker--just not his money. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dennis Lott | 3/7/2013

    " Thief an SOW "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heath Lowrance | 10/12/2012

    " This is probably the weakest of the Parker books I've read. But even a weak Parker is much better than most stuff out there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 7/1/2012

    " Nice and dark with the callous Parker in charge. (Though he's not as lacking in emotion as Dennis Lehane's forward would have it). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry Webber | 7/11/2011

    " I want to read this again right now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chip Hart | 6/18/2011

    " Shares too many similarities to The Hot Rock, which caused distraction. A slightly dissatisfying ending, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 4/13/2011

    " Classic streamline locomotive Stark narrative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 8/16/2010

    " Parker comes out of vacation to take on this Air Force payroll heist with some amateurs who surprise him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 8/5/2010

    " A good Parker novel. Nobody steals Parker's money. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 12/22/2008

    " There is a reason the author's pen name is Stark. Good books, but no heros, ever. "
