really liked it

Another strong entry in the Parker series. I've heard some people say that this one of the weaker entries, but I liked it quite a bit. Westlake/Stark uses some intersting narrative and structural choices that make it a fun read.

As usual, complications ensue as Parker is asked to help some foreign nationals steal some diamonds. Parker becomes a little more personally involved than usual, and it leads to a compelling denoument. There are a few rough spots here and there, particularly when it steers a little close to MISSION IMPOSSIBLE and MAN FROM UNCLE territory, which is not a comfortable fit for Parker.

Well worth your time, as usual.
