Parker is back, and this time someone is out to kill him. Our anti-hero figures out that it is someone in the Outfit trying to get him back for his reclaiming of the money they took from him. Parker than hatches on a plan to get the outfit back and shutdown the plot to kill him.

This second volume in the Parker series is a page turning read. The original story from Stark is trilling and tense. The illustrations by Darwyn Cooke only add to the tone of the story. The choice to use only one colour to accent the illustrations adds to the historical tone of the illustrations.

Brilliant. A must read.

Book two in this series. Quick read. I still like the novel better. Odd, I didn't figure Parker this way. I knew he was tough, but the book gives us a more "humane" persona, not this robot kind of a guy. Strange.
