just picked this up as well. after reading "Dandy Dan" Simmons's hard-boiled nutbuster "Hardcase" i've been sucked into a hard-boiled noir crime fiction bender. stark's (aka Donald Westlake's) anti-hero Parker is, apparently, the sort of archetypal good-badguy criminal hero protagonist as far as noir crime fiction goes. i'm still in the beginning of this one but if you're saying to yourself "hmm i want to read some crime fiction that's hard, sure, but i also want it boiled like pork shoulder or tea" and then you pick this book up and Parker punches you in the face and pees all over you. take that, pussy!
