In Stark's third Parker novel, the professional thief is fleeing through the backwoods of Massachussetts after a bank heist. He is rescued by Tom Lindahl, a recluse obsessed with getting back at the dog-racing company that he believes destroyed his life. The two form an unlikely pair as Parker, ever the opportunist, decides to help Lindahl rob the dog track. An ending that leaves the listener with many questions doesn't help this unusual story. However, William Dufris's performance is excellent and makes up for the weaknesses in the plot. Dufris's delivery of the characters' voices, complete with local accents, is totally believable. Author Stark is also known as Donald Westlake. S.S.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
