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? That 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.
The Sour Lemon Score / Richard Stark
“Stephen Thorne’s no-nonsense voice fits Parker’s reserved style. Thorne takes his cues from Stark’s (aka Donald Westlake) economical prose, narrating with an appropriately light touch that doesn’t impose on the characters. As Parker moves through a maze of underworld connections, Thorne keeps listeners engaged with Parker’s tireless pace.” ~ AudioFile (F.T.)
