The second in the terrific Parker series by Richard Stark aka Donald Westlake, Parker seems unperturbed by the new face he is given after being chased by "the syndicate" in the excellent, The Hunter. Parker is tough, mean, and super-cool, which makes this novel about an armored-car robbery and the aftermath of his plastic-surgery a terrific read. The Parker series is a must for those who like their crime fiction hard boiled.

If you don't know the Donald Westlake (writing as Stark) Parker series, go back and read Hunter first. This is a series that really needs to be read in order. The stories (capers) might stand alone, but the back story is needed to understand the characters. Parker has had a face job to avoid mob attention and this provides the side story that you need the history for. This story isn't a great follow up to the first novel but it is still a fun read. The Parker novels are no great literature but are pocket novels that you can read in a plane trip. They are hard edged, a bit nasty, and the characters rarely have any redeeming qualities. A guilty pleasure?
