When it comes to heists, Parker believes in some cardinal rules. On this job, he breaks two of them: never bring a dame along—especially not one you like—and never, ever, work with amateurs. Nevertheless, with the help of a creep named Billy, and the lure of a classy widow, he agrees to set up a heist of a coin convention. But Billy’s a rookie with no idea how to pull off a score, and the lady soon becomes a major distraction. The Rare Coin Score marks the first appearance of Claire, who will steal Parker’s heart while together they steal two million dollars worth of coins.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Parker is refreshingly amoral, a thief who always gets away with the swag.”

    Stephen King, praise for the series

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

    Elmore Leonard, praise for the author

  • “[Richard Stark’s] Parker novels are among the small number of books I read over and over. Forget all that crap you’ve been telling yourself about War and Peace and Proust—these are the books you’ll want on that desert island.”

    Lawrence Block, praise for the series

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

    New York Times Book Review, praise for the series

  • “[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, praise for the author

  • “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, praise for the author

    " "Parker spent two weeks on the white sand beach at Biloxi, and on a white sandy bitch named Belle, but he was restless, and one day without thinking about it he checked out and sent a forwarding address to Handy McKay and moved on to New Orleans." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by John | 1/18/2014

    " I read this in one sitting on the airplane. No one wrote a better series of hard-boiled novels in the 1960s than Richard Stark (Donald Westlake). In this one Parker leads a small group in a caper at a coin show and he meets a girl named Claire. "
