Parker is probably the genre's most captivating anti-hero.he's showing little signs of ageing and neither is Stark's prose - it's as lean, hungry and tightly plotted as ever.superior entertainment - Daily Mirror (Daily Mirror)
Fast, laconic, brutal stuff and, sadly, probably the last in the series' Uncut magazine. (Uncut magazine)
Stark is one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century - John Banville (John Banville)
From the Inside Flap
Master-thief Parker has unfinished business to conclude. Two million dollars are up for grabs but collecting them means returning to the scene of a heist turned sour.
Just a week ago, Parker and his gang made off with the contents of a country bank, stirring up a hornet's nest of law-enforcement. Trapped on foot and much too near the crime scene, Parker was forced to stash the loot in the choir loft of an abandoned country church.
Regardless of the still-present roadblocks and wanted posters, Parker knows he needs to recover the spoils before his murderous ex-confederates do. Of course, the cops are looking for the money, too. As are some New York thugs who've sniffed out what Parker is up to. And there's a resourceful female bounty hunter with her eye on a cut too.
Remorseless as ever, Parker will do whatever it takes to redeem his prize, no matter who gets hurt in the process - his new getaway van may have "Holy Redeemer Choir" emblazoned on its doors, but Parker's no choirboy...

Nobody moves more quickly through a novel than Stark; you have only just started reading and next minute you are ejected out the rear end like space-station rubbish. Where did that time go? Well, while you were in there, trying to keep up with Parker, you had a co-heister caught and lost by the police, a new woman arrived, she is a private detective, by the way, who wants Parker to locate for her the dead body from a previous escapade so that she can claim the bounty, she is telling, yes telling Parker that she is now the beneficiary of the said co-heister's share and there's nothing Parker can do about it because she has some mighty incriminating evidence that might just fall into the hands of the police if Parker does the wrong thing.......whoa, slow down, I need to catch my breath.......no time, we have to check the money is where we left it, find a way of getting to it now that the police are crawling all over the area and just waiting for any sign of the robbers returning to collect their prize and........enough.
If you like Parker, you'll love this.
A previous reviewer criticised this book by saying that in the past, Parker would never allow himself to be blackmailed by a female bounty hunter, but would have simply killed her and moved on. That reader obviously failed to grasp the point that she had a dossier on Parker and his current crew which was held by a third party to be released to the law if anything happened to her.
Crisply plotted, with taut dialogue and great action, this is a welcome addition to the Parker legend. Long may he reign in the dark world he inhabits!
