Nobody Runs Forever review ì 103 Steal an ard car But the human element gets in the way From a nervous ex con and his well intentioned sister to a bank manager's two timing wife and a beautiful relentless cop too many people have their hands too close to Parker's pie Then a bounty hunter who just happens to be hunting the man who never left th. One of the complicated plots in the Parker seriesWhat starts out as a fast and simple three man ard car heist or as simple as such a heist can be remember after all Parker hasn t fared well in previous attempted ard car robberies fairly uickly develops major complications and unwanted secondary characters wanting in on the monkey pointsThis one starts out like so When he saw that the one called Harbin was wearing a wire Parker said Deal me out a hand and got to his feet They d all come to this late night meeting in suits and ties traveling businessmen taking a break with a little seven card stud Harbin a nervous man unused to the dress shirt kept twitching and moving around bending forward to suint at his cards and finally Parker a uarter around the table to Harbin s left saw in the gap between shirt buttons that flash of clear tape holding the wire downAs he walked around the table Parker stripped off his own tie dark blue with green stripes slid it into a double thickness and arched it over Harbin s head He drew the two ends through the loop and yanked back hard with his right hand as his body pressed both Harbin and the chair he was in against the table and his left hand reached over to rip open Harbin s shirt The other five at the table about to speak or move or react to what Parker was doing stopped when they saw the wire taped to Harbin s pale chest the edge of the black metal box taped to his side Exit HarbinHow they conclude their obviously overheard game of stud and remove the body of the snitch is worth the price of admission aloneI might be wrong but there are female characters in this novel than in previous entries Claire s here of course but there are other women as well Good women bad women smart women greedy stupid womenCan t reveal much Once again this one is a superior entry in the Parker seriesIf you re reading the series you re going to have to read this one Doesn t really reuire having read previous entries but it wouldn t kill you to start with and and continue through the next 19 titlesNo one is better than Donald E Westlake writing as Richard Stark

Nobody Runs Forever review ì 103 Seven men came to a meeting in Cincinnati One wore a wire and another didn't hesitate to kill him fast and hard Now Parker has left that meeting and the murder behind and gotten involved in a scheme that is stuffed with money and troubleIn the rural northwestern corner of Massachusetts Parker and a pal plan to. This is the last book of the SPE the second Parker Epoch 1997 2008 I had not read Richard Stark AKA Donald E Westlake returned to his creation Parker after he wrote Butcher s Moonin 1974 Like another writer Spillane who returned to his creation Mike Hammer Stark also managed to do so successfully For some fans the first sixteen books were superiour and the new series less so but they all agree that it was nice to see the big fella return in books written by the original creatorwriterThis book is easily one of the better books with a beginning in which 7 men come together to plot some heist and before they get there one of them is detected wearing a wire Which ends any heist immediately as well as wire wearer s life All men go their separate ways with no further planning involved by these professionalsHowever when one of these men who is known to Parker offers him a go at another score Parker should have walked out simply due to the large amount of amateurs involved And then there is this smart female copper and a couple of bounty hunters The plot and people has a large amount of twists and several times you wonder why Parker does not move onA highly entertaining thriller that leaves you wanting Parker and it is simply one of the better novel from the SPE Donald E Westlake Richard Stark do gives us an excellent book and this is all me preparing for the new Westlake book that was created form a script meant to be a Pierce Brosnan 007 movie that gets its release this weekThat said the Parker series are well worth your while

Nobody Runs Forever review ì 103 E Cincinnati meeting joins the frayParker can see this job turning bad yet he can't let go of the score And when guns go off and the heist goes down the perfect plan will explode with a sound and fury all its own For Parker there's always the choice of turning from fight to flight even if there's nowhere to run. For various reasons I often end up reading series books out of seuence Usually this is only a minor thing a plot or character development that a later book incorporates as part of the background happens in a book I read some time afterwards But once in a while there is a pronounced A then B relationship that I miss out on Nobody Runs Forever is the 22nd Parker book and its story and ending lead directly in to the 23rd Ask The Parrot that I read a few weeks ago The entire premise of that book and its subseuent storyline are wholly based in this one Think of Nobody Runs Forever as the season ending cliffhanger and Ask The Parrot as the next season opener Good thing the author wasn t cancelled during the summer breakIn my limited experience with the Parker books this is the only 2 parter than I know of Thinking back to The Man With The Getaway Face it is possible that the opening of that book dovetails to the end of the first book in the series Otherwise that book and these two have very little in commonThis book is full of interesting little bits and characters The opening act with the heisters and their problem that Parker spots is a great beginning The Bounty Hunter Team is another good twist I certainly wasn t expecting to see Parker get snagged like that Using Sandra as to drive the plot and give the reader a twist or two was very good also I don t know if she surfaces again but she could be a welcome driver to any Parker storyI also liked the crime and how they arranged to pull it off successfully getting all that cash and then being stuck with it is a real pity No matter how much I liked I have to rate this book lower than other Parkers This is the first one that I really felt was bloated Sure a couple of the others have seemed a little wordy but this one is by far the fattest Is it because Stark has given us descriptions Maybe I didn t do a word count nor did I keep track of description vs narrative vs action In recollection it seemed that there were too many little diversions even if they were action and not atmosphere If this book had been edited down by 10 or 20 percent perhaps the author would have been economical with his words background characters and sub plots That kind of interplay works for other authors other protagonists think Lew Archer by Ross MacDonald but not for Parker and StarkAlthough I think I would have noted its length and dilution in any case I may be extra sensitive to it because I read Flashfire immediately prior to this And that book is an amazing choreography of action action action with minimal side stepping making it resound with who and what Parker is By no means am I suggesting that anyone skip this book I think Part 2 moves back into a better rhythm and story for Parker especially if you read them in order but I m only giving this one three 3 stars
