Racing through the backwoods of Massachusetts and on the verge of being taken down for one of the biggest and most disastrous bank heists the state has ever seen, Parker runs right into the barrel of a gun pointed from the wrong side of the law. A quiet and angry recluse with only a silent parrot for company in his seclusion, Tom Lindahl saves Parker from the police dogs, but enmeshes him in yet another in a long line of dubious, highly dangerous--but seriously profitable--jobs. Far more than some aimless indigent, holed up in a shack in the woods, Lindahl is a man built on rage and driven by a thirst for revenge. A whistleblower whom nobody heard, a man tossed aside by a corrupt political establishment, Lindahl plans to rob them of their lucre and needs Parker's help.

About the Author:

Richard Stark (1933-2008), wrote dozens of novels under his own name and a rainbow of other pseudonyms. Many of his books have been adapted for film, most notably The Hunter, which became the 1967 noir Point Blank and the 1999 smash Payback.

From AudioFile:

In Stark's third Parker novel, the professional thief is fleeing through the backwoods of Massachussetts after a bank heist. He is rescued by Tom Lindahl, a recluse obsessed with getting back at the dog-racing company that he believes destroyed his life. The two form an unlikely pair as Parker, ever the opportunist, decides to help Lindahl rob the dog track. An ending that leaves the listener with many questions doesn't help this unusual story. However, William Dufris's performance is excellent and makes up for the weaknesses in the plot. Dufris's delivery of the characters' voices, complete with local accents, is totally believable. Author Stark is also known as Donald Westlake. S.S.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
