The Outfit Read & Download Ê 4 review The Outfit Underworld learns an unforgettable lesson whatever Parker does he does deadly “Westlake knows precisely how to grab a reader draw him or her into the story and then slowly tighten his grip until escape is impossible” Washington Post Book World  “El Leonard wouldn’t write what he does if Stark hadn’t been there before And uentin Tarantino wouldn’t write what he does without Leonard Old master that he is Stark does all of them one better” Los Angeles Times  “Donald Westlake’s Parker novels are among the small number of books I read over and over Forget all that crap you’ve been telling yourself about War and Peace and Proust these are the books you’ll want on that desert island” Lawrence Block . in the hunter parker warned the Outfit that if he were to instruct all his contacts to hit Outfit run businesses across the nation they could put some serious hurting on the organization it never comes to that in this book it does and it s glorious not only do we track parker s moves against high ranking members of the Outfit but individual chapters are devoted to heists and jobs by various transient criminals directed at the Outfit good stuff i ve always loved stories which feature an interconnected underworld of criminals bad guys robbers vampires aliens etc who live amongst us and do what we do up to a point the sun goes down and they knock around empty train depots greasy spoons dive bars pool halls city streets etc and do bad things there s some great nerdy little metaphors for society wrapped up in all of this but also in general it reinforces the belief that ordinary day by day life has an underside that there are aliens in the midst that everything is not exactly as it should be this comforts me and this is parker s world a world which rejects the mainstream and also rejects the mainstream criminal organization the Outfit parker lives his life by his own rules most of the year spent at various resort hotels and spas and the other months in crappy anonymous motel rooms assembling a team and pulling off a heist intersperse some dames and some booze and that s parker it s sinister and scary and romantic and cool and i m always a sucker for it but what this book is really about is going soft it s about how when those on the margins become too big powerful or prestigious they re absorbed into the mainstream and go limp and parker capitalizes on this he understands that the Outfit might be thousands strong with millions of dollars and unlimited political connections but he also realizes that they re mired down in bureaucracy and red tape and have turned slow and soft and if he hits em hard and fast enough they have no means of recourse he can slip into the night and there ain t a damn thing they can do about it a b story featuring parker s favorite crime buddy handy mckay shows how after years of heists he s piled up enough money so that he can realize his dream to get outta the business and open a diner and this worries parker once a guy doesn t feel that urgency he like the Outfit gets soft and lazy and slow not good and parker parker ain t soft anything but check this out as any good parkerphile knows parker is celibate during the planning and doing phases of the job but once it s done he reuires sex lots of it in the final pages of this book as he s writing letters to his buddies that the Outift has given in to his demands and operations should cease a plump whore from downstairs enters his room offering up a freebie we like this woman and kinda want parker to do the deed here s what we get It would be a nice break from the letter writing to toss this one once a soft uickie on the clean sheets But the blank cowlike face stopped him because he knew there was a blank bovine mind behind it The first one after a job ought to be a good one like Bett not a pig from Scrantonand i ve gotta see this movie robert duvall as the parker character with robert ryan and joe don baker next up the mourner
