Overview

Between Parker s 1961 debut and his return in the late 1990s, the world of crime changed considerably. Now fake IDs and credit cards had to be purchased from specialists; increasingly sophisticated policing made escape and evasion tougher; and, worst of all, money had gone digital the days of cash-stuffed payroll trucks were long gone.But cash isn t everything: "Flashfire" and "Firebreak" find Parker going after, respectively, a fortune in jewels and a collection of priceless paintings. In "Flashfire," Parker s in West Palm Beach, competing with a crew that has an unhealthy love of explosions; when things go sour, Parker finds himself shot and trapped and forced to rely on a civilian to survive. "Firebreak" takes Parker to a palatial Montana "hunting lodge" where a dot-com millionaire hides a gallery of stolen old masters which will fetch Parker a pretty penny if his team can just get it past the mansion s tight security. The forests of Montana are an inhospitable place for a heister when well-laid plans fall apart, but no matter how untamed the wilderness, Parker s guaranteed to be the most dangerous predator around. Like all of Stark s Parker novels, "Firebreak" is a brutal yet compelling glimpse into the amoral world of crime and revenge. "Booklist" The action in "Flashfire"] is nonstop. . . . The awful fascination in these Parker tales comes from knowing the protagonist will always do whatever is necessary to protect himself and to achieve his goals. "Wall Street Journal""
