'Stark is one of the great exponents of American noir crime fiction and Parker is one of his most enduring creations' Daily Mail.
Daily Mail
'The writing is as stripped down as a drag racer and the action is brutal and powerful' Scotsman.
'Well-written, exciting and hugely entertaining ... Stark's crisp, convincing dialogue is as good as Elmore Leonard' The Times.
The Times
'This is classic Richard Stark, the grandmaster of American crime fiction, who brought Parker back to life by popular demand after a 20-year break. Parker, of course, 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.
