Read in May, 2010

Parker was restless and, because of it, violated two cardinal rules. Working with amateurs and having a woman along, and sleeping with her, during the job.

The job was a coin dealer's show one weekend. The amateur was to point out the table with the coins worth the most. He had a driver to help, a strong man to load the cases on their truck, both to help waylay and tie the guards up, the old man named Lempke who'd brought him in, and the woman.

Things were going well until an attempt was made to hijack the haul, the amateur went for the gun he was supposed to have left behind, and the gunfire alerted the hotel. All plans suddenly went up in smoke!

The book is notable as the woman is Claire, her first appearnace.
