    Richard Stark(Author)
Together at last. Under the pseudonym Richard Stark, Donald E. Westlake, one of the greats of crime fiction, wrote twenty-four fast-paced, hard-boiled novels featuring Parker, a shrewd career criminal with a talent for heists and a code all his own. With the publication of the last four Parker novels Westlake wrote--Breakout, Nobody Runs Forever, Ask the Parrot, and Dirty Money--the University of Chicago Press pulls the ultimate score: for the first time ever, the entire Parker series will be available from a single publisher.

Nobody Runs Forever opens a three-part saga with a job at a poker game that sours into a necktie party. When Parker goes in on a messy scam--stealing an armored car--with someone he barely knows, as usual the amateurs get in the way of the job.

Featuring new forewords by Chris Holm, Duane Swierczynski, and Laura Lippman--celebrated crime writers, all--these masterworks of noir are the capstone to an extraordinary literary run that will leave you craving more. Written over the course of fifty years, the Parker novels are pure artistry, adrenaline, and logic both brutal and brilliant. Join Parker on his jobs and read them all again or for the first time. But don't talk to the law.

"Although Parker keeps his cool to the bitter end, it will probably be some time before he can pick up a hymnal without cringing."--Marilyn Stasio "New York Times ""A cliffhanger . . . . A one-two punch . . . [with] impact and velocity."--James Wolcott "New York Times ""A cliffhanger. . . . A one-two punch . . . [with] impact and velocity."--James Wolcott "New York Times "

Review Text

  • By Guest on 21 December 2004

    This is another classic in the Parker series. Some departures from the norm in that a female police office is depicted whose character is explored to an extent. The heist is classic Stark as are the various interpersonal rivalries and dynamics.Probably not the best of the series but top class nonetheless

    One of the last Parker novels, but still as good as ever.
