Overview

The sixteenth Parker novel, "Butcher s Moon" is more than twice as long most of the master heister s adventures, and absolutely jammed with the action, violence, and nerve-jangling tension readers have come to expect. Back in the corrupt town where he lost his money, and nearly his life, in "Slayground," Parker assembles a stunning cast of characters from throughout his career for one gigantic, blowout job: starting and finishing a gang war. It feels like the Parker novel to end all Parker novels, and for nearly twenty-five years that s what it was. After its publication in 1974, Donald Westlake said, Richard Stark proved to me that he had a life of his own by simply disappearing. He was gone.
Featuring a new introduction by Westlake s close friend and writing partner, Lawrence Block, this classic Parker adventures deserve a place of honor on any crime fan s bookshelf.More than thirty-five years later, "Butcher's Moon" still packs a punch: keep your calendar clearwhen you pick it up, because once you open it you won't want to do anything but read untilthe last shot is fired."
