Parker, Richard Stark's antihero, isn't the kind of guy you'd have over for dinner. He's a ruthless thief and a brutal sociopath. As written by Stark (a.k.a. Donald E. Westlake) and read by Michael Kramer, however, he's so fascinating and deliciously evil, you just have to root for him. Parker comes to a small town to kill and thus silence a jugger (a retired safecracker) he's worked with for years. He finds his former associate already dead and sets out to learn why. Kramer must have loved doing this character because he's more animated than usual. As Parker, Kramer's deep voice is convincingly menacing--so menacing you just know he's going to come out on top.
