Bank robberies should run like clockwork, right? If your name’s Parker, you expect nothing less. Until, that is, one of your partners gets too greedy for his own good. The four-way split following a job leaves too small a take for George Uhl, who begins to pick off his fellow hoisters, one by one. The first mistake? He doesn’t begin things by putting a bullet in Parker. That means he won’t get the chance to make a second. One of the darkest novels in the series, this caper proves the adage that no one crosses Parker and lives.

    " If you ever need to cleanse your palate of all the modern day PC nonsense out there, just pick up one of the Parker stories.........Some of today's lefty writers would get the vapors and pass out if they read this! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 1/8/2014

    " 3.5 & as good as the last, but I gave that 4 stars, so I'm trying to even out. It was another fun, screwed up Parker adventure. Nothing else to say without spoilers, though. Sorry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alecia | 1/6/2014

    " A very short Parker novel, but very good, as always. Once again, there is a doublecross on one of Parker's heists, and Parker spends most of the book tracking down the guy who did it. It is a very satisfying read for Parker fans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Mock | 12/18/2013

    " A great study of a heist gone wrong. Superb characterizations and sharp writing! A return to form for the Parker novels. Highly entertaining! "

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

    " Parker is mostly flying solo for this one, which makes for a leaner, meaner tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 7/19/2013

    " Someone stole Parker's money and he wants it back. It's not about revenge, it's just about the money. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 5/4/2013

    " A surprisingly brutal Parker book. It keeps the tension razor-sharp, and the brutality serves to make the story that much more engaging. Excellent stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dr Edward Diesel | 10/3/2012

    " The first Richard Stark book I read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Stevens | 10/1/2012

    " least favorite thus far of the Parker books. "

    " Parker spend all his time chasing the money he helped score, and he eventually gets all his men, but not the money. "
