Summary The Handle Summary · The Handle ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Summary ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¹ Richard Stark The Baron ran a gambling island off the Texas coast in the Gulf’s blue waters To Parker it was just a floating crap game with class To the Big Boys it was competition they couldn’t stomach They wanted a s. Parker who looks like he is made of chunks of wood I like that is a meticulous logical and unemotional planner of thefts Most of the action is straightforwardly narrated we get to see how one might pull off a job hey it s a continuingly tough economy You never know what kind of information might be useful I m kidding but there IS an interesting ethical angle to these books actually we cheer for a sociopathic anti hero what does that make us For a guy most people describe as the strong silent type Parker gets into some over the top capers In The Seventh he and some guys rob a football stadium for the gate receipts during a big game he takes on the mob in The Outfit he and a large group knock off a whole North Dakota city In The Handle he takes on a casino on a small islandThe Baron owns this island in the Gulf of Mexico to the annoyance of The Outfit who can t get at any of the money and who in this case hires Parker to knock off the casino and put The Baron out of business One positive feature of this one is that the engagingly funny actor Alan Grofield returns yay and the job while it doesn t uite go as they planned does work out entertainingly at the end Grofield says to Parker Talking to you is like talking to one of those statues on Easter Island Appropriately amusingWhen Grofield is hurt we are surprised to see Parker actually goes out of his way to take care of him Parker likes him But we as readers like Grofield who is as much a professional as Parker but the opposite of his personality He becomes so popular as a character and a favorite of Stark s so he actually creates four books with Grofield as the main character I haven t read them but I am temptedAnother attractive feature of this one is that we switch from Parker s perspective to The Baron s who escapes his island by boat with the cash and diamonds to Mexico He manages to walk with his two suitcases across 21 barren miles inland from the Mexican coast until he meets an old indigenous Mexican What ensues is worth your time Everything that happens AFTER the blown heist is better than the action seuences of the heist itself in my opinion
