The first of 24 novels Donald Westlake wrote under the name Richard Stark introduces the coldhearted antihero named Parker, a career criminal who then appeared in 15 other novels. In this first caper, the newly freed ex-con, having been betrayed by his ex-partner and his wife, goes on a one-man campaign in pursuit of money and revenge. John Chancer provides a serviceable reading in a clear, even voice. But Parker is a gritty noir character—as dark as they come—and Chancer lacks the edge to convey that ruthlessness.
