It was an impossible crime: knock off an entire North Dakota town called Copper Canyon - clean out the plant payroll, both banks, and all the stores in one night. Parker called it science fiction, but with the right men (a score of them), he could figure it out to the last detail. It could work. If the men behaved like pros, cool and smart; if they didn't get impatient, start chasing skirts, or decide to take the opportunity to settle secret old scores...they just might pull it off.< /p> Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I think I've hit my limit of Parker books for now. The formula was a bit too predictable, although this was his most ambitious job yet. Unfortunately, I guessed most of the high points pretty much from the beginning. Still, the details were fun to follow & Parker is a wonderful anti-hero. While I have #6, I'm missing the odd numbers after that through #12. I'll see if I can't get them for another Parker marathon at another time. "

    " I've been a long fan of Richard Stark's (aka Donald Westlake) hardboiled Parker the thief series. THE SCORE is set in a boxed-in Western town where Parker and a large gang hit several banks and the mine's payroll at once. A clever twist is dropped into the last part. Parker is like Mr. Spock, all business and no time for humor or fools. One of the gang members, Alan Grofield, appears later in LEMONS NEVER LIE published by Hard Case Crime. "

    " The setup was interesting, the heist planning was dull, but the actual heist was very entertaining. Fun little read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 1/9/2014

    " One of the more "minor" Parker novel, yet even here you can help but think of all the movies based ont this... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Russeller | 1/6/2014

    " Rubbish. I want those 90 minutes back. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alejandro | 12/25/2013

    " It's nice to see Parker work with a big group for a change. Some people might say that this one ties itself up a little TOO nicely, but I say fuck 'em. Westlake always kept it real and, when writing as Stark, could leave readers picking grit out of their teeth with a 2.5 page chapter if he wanted... which he seemingly did... frequently. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin Katz | 12/20/2013

    " Short, straight to the point. Lays out the heist, gives some background on the players. It felt like I was reading the shortened version of a movie like Ocean's 11. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Derek | 12/19/2013

    " This was the first Parker book I have read and I loved it. I cannot wait to read more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 12/15/2013

    " This was okay for me. The vast number of characters made for a bit of a chaotic story. Parker is always entertaining and good for a few, "I can't believe he just said that!", but I wanted more of him! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 12/11/2013

    " I don't know why this isn't a movie. It's that good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christie Anna | 12/3/2013

    " This was free off Nook so to be honest, I wasn't expecting much. I really enjoyed it though. Quick, easy, light read for those who like "on the edge of your seat" stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn Demsky | 12/2/2013

    " The forward on this book was a royal pain in the butt to wade thru but the story was good and yet what a way to waste a life! I will try a couple more of these! "

    " Another exceptional Parker novel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dennis Lott | 11/3/2013

    " Bank thief "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 8/4/2013

    " Wow. Quite the explosive heist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Willcoopertheactor | 12/6/2012

    " So many bad guys in the biggest heist yet. Very good use of major characters interacting with minor characters but still making everything work and never boring. Richard Stark is brilliant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 11/2/2012

    " A quick and fun heist novel. It flowed along nicely, with plenty of interesting characters. Short and straightforward, but worth hanging around until the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Douglas Vance Castagna | 7/7/2012

    " After a disappointing Mourner, Parker is back in full force for the fifth installment as our very likeable and very deadly anti hero. Once again this book made me upset that I have not read this series sooner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corky | 7/20/2011

    " Richard Stark is Donald Westlake with less humor and more hard edge. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonpaul | 4/26/2011

    " Hard boiled fiction of the highest order. This is the gold standard in heist novels. "

  • 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. "

  • 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. "
