Richard Stark
4.1/5 (1550 ratings)
It's not in Parker's nature to gamble; he steals instead. So when it comes to ripping off a big fat floating gambling casino on the Hudson River, Parker leaves nothing to chance. From the phony politician to the getaway boat, from bringing the guns on board to getting the money off, Parker has it all planned out. There are only a few little problems...The guy who tipped off Parker in the first place is a bureaucrat who has a moral streak -- or a yellow streak -- plus a story that doesn't quite add up. The guy who's steering the getaway boat has some unsavory friends who happen to have plenty of guns. And a reporter on the casino has enough sense to know that something on this cruise isn't quite right. Suddenly Parker's surefire plan is blowing up like fireworks on the Fourth -- only these bangs make people dead.
