characters Backflash Richard Stark í 3 review review Backflash 103 He money off Parker has it all planned out There are only a few little problemsThe guy who tipped off Parker in the first place is a bureaucrat who has a moral streak or a yellow streak plus a story that doesn't uite add up The guy who's steering the getaway boat ha. Right after finishing this book I jumped right into the first book in the Parker series The Hunter I don t know if it is just the twenty year hiatus that came between Butcher s Moon and Comeback or if the change comes gradually in the first sixteen Parker novels but the amoral criminal in the later books seems like an easy going live and let live type compared to the angry man in the rumbled suit that walks over the George Washington Bridge to exact revenge on the people who fucked him over in the opening novel to the series I thought that Parker was a hard as nails character in the this book and Comeback but now I m seeing he s a much mellower version of what he once was But not to mix up books that I m talking about too much I ll just focus on Backflash for now and talk about The Hunter in my future review for that book I ll probably end up repeating things I said in my last Richard Stark review The story is no nosense Parker is enlisted to rob a riverboat casino on the Hudson River in Upstate NY 518 Represent during what is supposed to be a trial period for New York to have some casinos of it s own that aren t run by Native Americans And that is the story for the book how Parker sets up and executes the heist I was a little disappointed that the story was told in a traditional and linear manner than the sort of cubist manner of Comeback But my disappointment in formal ualities was soothed by the plot itself I really liked this book a lot I even thought maybe I should rate this one higher than Comeback but I don t know if where the two Parker novels I ve read stand in the entire body of Stark s work so for now I m giving it the four stars just so that if I m totally blown away by some of the other books I have something higher to rate them with Brian commented on the last review that Stark and Parker as a character don t waste any words and that is dead on accurate The book is lean as fuck there is nothing extraneous Every line is necessary to the story there are no words in the book or said by Parker that aren t necessary The text like the protagonist is single minded and ruthless in its goal which actually makes the first chapter of The Hunter a little jarring since it contains so much description compared to the leaner prose that even follows in later chapters of the first book it s like Stark had to get all those extra superfluous adjectives out of his system to get the Parker ball rolling and then could get streamlined and economical side note the basic premise of this book is wildly implausible taking into account the political climate of New York State the massive influence of the New York Racing Association and general priggishness in the mid to late 90 s regarding morality when it comes to adults risking money in different manners that don t involve horses running in a circle Also in the logic of the book the trial run of river boat gambling would be overlapping with the start of the Saratoga racing season something that at the time would never been allowed to happen The very existence of a casino river boat thirty miles from the track that sits next to Yaddo would excite the ire of a majority of moral hypocrites in Albany and would have been a very different political climate from the one described by Richard Stark but this is fiction so ignore all of that

characters Backflash Richard Stark í 3 review review Backflash 103 S some unsavory friends who happen to have plenty of guns And a reporter on the casino has enough sense to know that something on this cruise isn't uite right Suddenly Parker's surefire plan is blowing up like fireworks on the Fourth only these bangs make people dea. Book 18 though 2 after a long hiatus Parker is contacted by a man named Cathman a retired government bureaucrat who wants to rob a casino ship on the Hudson River between Albany and Poughkeepsie As the inside man Cathman has all the details but Parker is worried about his motives and the limited escape routes from a riverboat casino even one filled with cash After completing his due diligence and developing a viable plan he assembles a familiar crew of thieves to pull off the daring job But as always there are competing forces leading to the usual post heist mayhem I especially liked the role played by Noelle Braselle as a sympathetic wheelchair bound invalid
