The good guys in a new African nation were missing a treasury full of diamonds. The nation’s corrupt leader had stashed the rocks somewhere in New York City. Now the good guys needed a specialist to get their diamonds back. So they came to the best in the business: Parker. Only the three mysterious tough guys came to Parker, too. They figured three hands filled with .38’s could convince him to pass up this international gem game. But leaning on Parker was like pressuring a box of TNT with a short fuse.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Westlake knows precisely how to grab a reader, draw him or her into the story, and then slowly tighten his grip until escape is impossible.” Washington Post
“Parker is refreshingly amoral, a thief who always gets away with the swag.” Entertainment Weekly
“A new African nation’s corrupt leader has stashed a treasury of diamonds somewhere in New York City. The nation’s good guys hire Parker to help them recover the rocks. Three mysterious tough guys and one second-rate con man muddy the waters as they each try to steal the diamonds…Overall, Thorne’s tone, cadence, and expression fully engage listeners. The Black Ice Score is comfort food for the ears.“ AudioFile
“Gritty and chillingly noir…[Westlake] succeeds in demonstrating his total mastery of crime fiction.” Booklist
