it was amazing
bookshelves: read-reviewed-2013

The last of the original series and a great ending to an impressive run.

This book followed up on a previous installment, brought back a number of familiar faces, and returned to the theme from the first book: Parker won't stop till he gets what's his.

Although all the books up to this point have been good, they felt a little churned out at times. They were very short and each had limited scope (even then they were well worth reading). With this one Westlake allowed things to breathe a bit more and for the story to go in unexpected directions. The bad guys counterattack and Parker has to shows us what he's made of. Solid steel, in case you're wondering.

A fitting and very entertaining end to the series. I'll probably pick up the later books that restarted the series at some point, but as very happy with the way the Parker books turned out. A classic run of great stories.
