The robbery was a piece of cake. The getaway was clean. And seven men were safely holed up in different places while Parker held all the cash. But somehow the sweet heist of a college football game turns sour, Parker's woman is murdered, and the take is stolen. Now Parker's looking for the lowlife who did him dirty, while the cops are looking for seven clever thieves - and Parker must outrun them all. When hunters and hunted meet, some win, some lose .

    " A very good read. Quick, well-plotted, and hard hitting. In the end it's one long set-up for a very sick, very black joke. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hans | 2/17/2014

    " Through no fault of his own, Parker is on the run. He needs a quick score and finds an improbable opportunity that actually works out. The job was so clean that they didn't even need all the equipment that they picked up for the set-up. Unfortunately, getting away with it turns into a bloody mess. (view spoiler)[Really enjoyed the comic relief from Dan Kifka and his girl. Though the ending isn't too pretty or funny. (hide spoiler)] "

    " A fantastically spare, hard-boiled novel. Parker gets robbed after robbing a college football game; Parker goes for revenge. The plot isn't complicated in the least, but Parker's a magnetic character, and seeing him work is a joy. Just excellent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Douglas Vance Castagna | 2/10/2014

    " Another action laced high octane Stark addition to the series. We cannot help but root for Parker even though we know he is, well, shall I say flawed? Hell no. Bring them on. "

    " The heist went perfectly. Parker, the master thief and ultimate anti-hero, led a group of men on a daring daylight robbery of a college football stadium on the day of the big game. After making off with over $100,000, the group splits, leaving the cash with Parker to be divided later after the heat is off. A jealous boyfriend of the woman Parker is holing up with queers the deal by breaking into her apartment, killing her and stealing the money. This leads to a mad scramble between the crooks, the cops, and the amateur that stumbled into the score and sent everybody reeling. This was one of the best books I have read in the Parker series, Stark's style is as lean and mean as his main character, without a word wasted. The story builds to an awesome conclusion with the crooks turning on each other and Parker chasing the amateur through the woods to an abandoned building site. The ex-boyfriend does everything he can to save his life, but Parker closes in for the kill inexorably, like the tide. "

    " this is possibly a minor Parker novel, but I love how it works. Pretty sure they made movie based on it, but I'd love to do the remake. "

    " Football stadium heist goes bad. Credibility has mostly vanished by the end. "

    " Parker lets down his guard, and finds himself trying to track the scammer who scammed his scam. The effort Parker puts in trying to make a wrong a right is noble, and an interesting read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 1/7/2014

    " Another heist, but with so many twists & turns, not to mention a perfect ending. Only Parker! Excellent. On to the next! "

    " I always enjoy the books in this series and this audio was no exception. Quick and violent with no excess fat. Narration was done by Stephen R. Thorne who did a very serviceable job. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick Tomashot | 9/22/2013

    " Westlake's Parker -- what more can I say? 60's Pulp Crime writing at its best! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 6/16/2013

    " This book shows Parker at his finest and most dogged. Don't cross him - you'll be sorry. What a fun, scary, dark, enjoyable character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alecia | 7/9/2012

    " I just finished The Mourner and now this book. I enjoy this Parker series so much. The only downside to me is that they are so short and they go too fast. "

    " Very entertaining. He kills everybody, and gets money. nice! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harold | 4/21/2012

    " Short and to the point. Like going to see a movie. Total entertainment. Tough guy stuff. What's not to like? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ed | 2/4/2012

    " I'd rate The Seventh up there with The Hunter as the best reads in the Parker the Thief series from Richard Stark (a/k/a Donald Westlake). I was taken with his descriptions, pace, and gang's characters. Reading The Seventh is like watching a smart, tense action movie. Enjoyed over several nights. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 1/24/2012

    " Loved the ending to this one. Parker's pursuit of his outmatched quarry is like experiencing a nightmare from the nightmare's point of view. "

    " A fantastically spare, hard-boiled novel. Parker gets robbed after robbing a college football game; Parker goes for revenge. The plot isn't complicated in the least, but Parker's a magnetic character, and seeing him work is a joy. Just excellent. "
