The only way the listener can tell this book was written decades ago is the solitary reference to a Studebaker and an Edsel. Otherwise, this intriguing story featuring Parker, a professional robber, stands the test of time. After Parker and six other crooks successfully heist a stadium box office, they, in turn, are robbed of the proceeds. When Parker sets out to recover his winnings, all hell breaks loose. Michael Kramer's performance is crisp and credible, although his apologetic tone wears on the listener after awhile; however, his delivery is paced faster than usual, making this distraction relatively mild. His accents and characterizations have improved, as well. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
