The heist was a piece of cake. It didn't bother Parker that the priceless statue was in a Russian diplomat's house... because he had no scruples about ripping off a Red. It didn't bother Parker that his ex-girlfriend had blackmailed him into pulling this job... because he figured out how to make an extra fifty grand on the deal. It did bother Parker that somebody else was trying to steal the statue first - because being second wasn't Parker's style. Whether he was up against the mob or the KGB, Parker intended to beat them all at the stealing game. Of course, he didn't count on a double cross, a two-timing blonde, and one lethal luger aimed at making him not only second, but last. Dead last.

    " This is the original hard boiled tough guy. Stark (Westlake writing as Stark) boils the essence of a smart no-nonsense tough guy down from the work of the greats that wrote detective and crime fiction before him, and created Parker. Forget the movies you may have seen - be they timeless classics or modern dreck - and do yourself a favor and read these. If you like crime fiction you have to check these books out. The Chicago Press has re-released them in sharp stylish new paperbacks that are inexpensive and look great. Perfect reading for a single afternoon: they are short, fun and really pop. They are like Pringles: I bet you can't read just one. "

    " So it starts off oddly, but the book picks up the pace quickly, and Menlo's an engaging enough foil for Parker to really make things sing. Plus, more Handy McKay, who is awesome. "

    " I found this book pretty darn dull for something billed as a mystery. Although I am not a seasoned mystery novel reader, I did expect to not be able to figure it out within the first 10 or 20 pages. Even still, it was a fast read, and I'm sure it would be great for a high school book report. "

    " A lean, mean crime thriller. In his fourth outing, Parker is blackmailed into stealing a medieval statue. However, he finds that another party is after the same target. "
