Read Butcher's Moon Butcher's Moon Read ☆ 104 Read & Download Ç PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ù Richard Stark Career for one gigantic blowout job starting and finishing a gang war It feels like the Parker novel to end all Parker novels and for nearly twenty five years that’s what it was After its publication in 1974 Donald Westlake said “Richard Stark proved to me that he had a life of his own by simply disappearing He was gone” Featuring a new introduction. Short on cash Parker and Grofield return to Tyler to get some money Parker stashed in an amusement park But the money isn t there and signs point to the local mob which is in the midst of a power struggle Whichever party comes out on top had better remember that when Parker is owed money he always collects one way or another I d been waiting for over six months for Butcher s Moon to be reprinted by University of Chicago Press Was it worth the wait Hell yesButcher s Moon was the last Parker book of the original run and there s a feel of finality to it Parker and Grofield go to work getting back the money Parker had to leave behind in Slayground and run afoul of the local syndicate When Grofield gets shot and taken captive and Parker gets one of his fingers in the mail Parker takes it personally and calls in a slew of favors Practically all of Parker s partners from the previous books who weren t double crossed andor killed in the previous volumes show up to lend a hand and share in the score even Handy McKay Parker is as relentless and ruthless as ever The power struggle within the Tyler mob was well done as was Parker s masterful way of taking them outAs usual Stark s clipped style moves the story along with the pace of an out of control freight train Butcher s Moon is twice the length of most Parker tales and has three or four times as much action The final shootout at the end is well worth the price of admission at the U of C price not the hundreds the earlier printings fetch But I m only the messengerNow you re the message Parker said and shot himClassic ParkerAny complaints Not really although I was expecting a higher bodycount among Parker s crew I was half hoping Parker would leave with the entire take from the score and leave his crew in the lurch The ending would have been a fitting ending to the entire Parker series but I m glad Stark wrote eight even if it did take him 25 yearsIf you re a Parker fan Butcher s Moon is not to be missed especially at the price for this University of Chicago reprint

Read Butcher's Moon Butcher's Moon Read ☆ 104 Read & Download Ç PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ù Richard Stark The sixteenth Parker novel Butcher’s Moon is than twice as long most of the master heister’s adventures and absolutely jammed with the action violence and nerve jangling tension readers have come to expect Back in the corrupt town where he lost his money and nearly his life in Slayground Parker assembles a stunning cast of characters from throughout his. Beginning in 1962 over the course of ten years Donald E Westlake wrote fifteen Parker novels pen name Richard Stark all hardboiled crime fiction featuring Parker the ultimate cool calculating heister And all fifteen short novels follow the same four step template planning the heist assembling the crew the heist itself the escape But then it happened Mr Westlake broke the mold changed things up achieved a slam dunk with the publication of Butcher s Moon in 1974 How did he do it Signature Richard Stark but with three major differences firstly at well over 300 pages Butcher s Moon is double the length of his other Parker novels secondly Butcher s Moon does not follow the aforementioned four part heist structure not even close and thirdly well let me hold off on reason number three for nowRunning toward the light Parker fired twice over his left shoulder not caring whether he hit anything or not It was just to slow them down keep the cops in the front of the store while he and the others got out The above are the opening lines from the novel s first chapter fast paced action at the tail end of a heist gone bad Parker and crew tripped a silent alarm not mentioned in the plan they d bought The cops arrive on the scene and shoot a guy named Michaelson who flops down and groans at the top of the cellar steps Parker orders Briggs the explosive technician to close it up meaning blow up the cellar door and top steps the steps where their partner lays sprawled Is Michaelson dead or just wounded According to Parker it doesn t matter since he s finishedMinutes later in the getaway car unlike one of the heisters who is furious the plan they bought didn t mention a second alarm system Parker immediately puts this botched job behind him things like a new silent alarm sometimes happen and because he s on a bad luck streak four botched heists in a row he immediately considers another way he can uickly get his hands on much needed cash When asked what s next Parker tells the guys he left some money behind after a job a couple years ago and now s the time to go back and get it We uickly learn Parker s referring to 73000 and an amusement park on the edge of a Midwestern City Parker fans will hear a familiar ring Richard Stark s 1971 Slayground a tale where Parker s driver crashes the getaway car and Parker grabs the sack of dough and makes a run for it solo There s only one escape route an amusement park covered in ice and snow and surrounded by water Fun Island currently shut down for the winter Turns out Parker must go up against dozens of armed men under the command of Al Luzini the local mob bossBack on Butcher s Moon Parker calls Grofield one of the crew from that ard car heist and they both go to Fun Island to get the dough Parker stashed away in a remote hiding spot However there s bad news the suitcase with the money is gone gone Parker says some local tough boys chased him to this part of the amusement park and must have come back to look for the money they knew he had with him Grofield asks if he knows how to find any of them Parker tells him he knows the name of their boss LoziniThus the novel s framework Parker demands his money all 73000 Al Lozini doesn t have a clue about any 73000 but he recognizes Parker is right somebody in his organization must have gone back to Fun Island and made off with the cashBut who Not an easy uestion to answer especially since there s all sorts of political happenings taking place in this small city of Tyler an upcoming election and gulp a power play within Luzini s gangster empire The last thing the local mob needs is two outsiders Parker and his buddy stirring up the muck But stir the muck they do So many players drawn into the action The body count begins to mount Parker keeps demanding Give me my money The answer keeps coming back no Then someone crosses the line he threatens Parker in a way most grotesue Wrong move misterNearly 200 pages filled with blood grizzle and gore and Butcher s Moon is about to take a dramatic shift I purposely didn t cite any of those grisly bloody specifics so as not to spoil but as reviewer I m obliged to address what happens in Chapter Thirty FiveOh yes that pivotal chapter Here s the skinny the grotesue threat enrages Parker unleashes Parker s inner tiger lets loose Parker s inner wolf Not only does Parker want his money as he does in all Richard Stark novels Parker now wants he wants Grofield currently a prisoner held by the mob and Parker wants blood he wants all those mob bastards dead Parker phones twenty five men By nightfall eleven tell Parker they re inIt s war All eleven travel to Tyler all eleven take a seat in the apartment serving as Parker s home base All eleven examine the plan Parker outlines the multiple heists and the final attackBut the key uestion remains What s with the change in Parker Why does Parker now want than just his money Even one of the heisters confronts Parker remarkingThat s not like you Parker fans have been debating this very uestion ever since Butcher s Moon first hit the bookracks Has Parker really changed or has Parker simply expanded what it means to be Parker For each reader to decideThe novel s last fifty pages the climatic showdown between forty armed mobsters and Parker s eleven surely counts as among the most thrilling electrifying spine tingling episodes in all crime fiction The gangsters think they ll win with ease based on sheer numbers but little do they know who they re up againstOh baby if those Tyler thugs only knew Parker has assembled a dream team of combatants men with expertise ranging from electronics to explosives and everything in between To use a sports analogy like a local team of semipros taking the field against Manchester UnitedI ve said enough Crime fiction too good to be true No wonder John Banville proclaimed We admire Parker to our shame taking a guilty pleasure in his fearless fearsomeness This is existential man at his furthest extremity confronting a world that is even wicked and treacherous than he isAmerican author Donald E Westlake 1933 2008
