Read from November 04 to December 03, 2011

After the fifth book in the Parker series (The Score), I decided that I needed a break. I still enjoyed them, but I was getting a little bored of the formulaic nature of the books (set up of job-->execution-->double cross-->getaway). For whatever reason I decided to pick up The Jugger, and much to my surprise, I absolutely loved it. The structure of the story is entirely different from anything else in the series, which made it feel refreshingly unique while maintaining the crimey noirish charm all the books sport. Definitely one of my favorites in the Parker universe so far.
