Parker is a lot like actors such as Clint Eastwood, Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, etc. The only difference is that all of these actors look like pussycats next to Parker. Parker is mean, violent, has few redeeming qualities morally, and he's one of the greatest characters in all of fiction. The Hunter, by Richard Parker (alias for Donald Westlake) is the novel to introduce Parker, a professional thief. As far as plot goes, all you must know is that Parker is out on revenge. Just follow along and enjoy the ride. This has turned out to be one of my favorite novels ever. Stark is an amazing writer, great prose, dialogue, and generally, he's just an amazing story-teller. There are 24 books in the Parker series and I cannot wait to read all of them.

    A Wonderful Discovery

    I loved this book, my first Parker read. What a great character Parker is, totally tough, pretty smart and mostly amoral. A solo criminal sets out to settle scores and does so, just like that. No hand wringing, no tears, not a surplus word. If Elmore Leonard's heroes were bad guys instead of good guys, it would have been something like this. I can't wait to read the next in the series.
