Probably the best of the Parker novels thus far. Fast Paced, mean as hell, existenially cool, and just plain nasty.

Though it's becoming clear that there are certain narrative tricks that Stark will have no problem revisiting (Parker is dispatched point of view shifts to dispatcher who makes a getaway. OH SHIT PARKER'S BACK!) He handles them so well it just seems scroogelike to hold it against him.
