The Outfit was organized crime with a capital O. They were big; they were bad; they were brutal. No crook ever crossed them and lived to enjoy it—except Parker. So they wanted Parker dead, and a hit man proved they meant business. Too bad for the Outfit he missed. Ripping off the Outfit was the easy part of Parker’s game. Going one-on-one with Bronson, the Outfit’s big boss, was the hard part.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Parker is refreshingly amoral, a thief who always gets away with the swag.” Stephen King, for Entertainment Weekly 
“Donald Westlake’s Parker novels are among the small number of books I read over and over. Forget all that crap you’ve been telling yourself about War and Peace and Proust—these are the books you’ll want on that desert island.” Lawrence Block
“Whatever Stark writes, I read. He’s a stylist, a pro, and I thoroughly enjoy his attitude.” Elmore Leonard
“Richard Stark writes a harsh and frightening story of criminal warfare and vengeance with economy, understatement and a deadly amoral objectivity—a remarkable addition to the list of the shockers that the French call romans noirs.” New York Times Book Review
“Elmore Leonard wouldn’t write what he does if Stark hadn’t been there before. And Quentin Tarantino wouldn’t write what he does without Leonard…Old master that he is, Stark does all of them one better.” Los Angeles Times
“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 Book World
