Descripción

Bank robberies should run like clockwork, right? If your name’s Parker, you expect nothing less. Until, that is, one of your partners gets too greedy for his own good. The four-way split following a job leaves too small a take for George Uhl, who begins to pick off his fellow hoisters, one by one. The first mistake? That he doesn’t begin things by putting a bullet in Parker. That means he won’t get the chance to make a second. One of the darkest novels in the series, this caper proves the adage that no one crosses Parker and lives

“Whatever Stark writes, I read. He’s a stylist, a pro, and I thoroughly enjoy his attitude.”—Elmore Leonard

“The non-hero: the ruthless, unrepentant, single-minded operator in a humorless and amoral world. . . . No one depicts this scene with greater clarity than Richard Stark.”—The New York Times

  • (5/5)
    The Sour Lemon Score is the 12th book in the Parker series by Donald Westlake, published under the name Richard Stark. It is among the best of the Parker books. Parker is a thief, a heister, a hijacker. He is known as being cold, professional, emotionless. He is the best at what he does. But Parker has his own notions of morality and they include standing by your word and dividing the loot equally. He is not sadistic or vicious. He only does what he needs to get the job done. Knowing all this about Parker (and he's fairly well known in his circles), you'd think most folks would be hip to what happens when you double-cross him. Well, George Uhl apparently didn't get the memo. Following a well executed bank robbery, Uhl turns on his three accomplices and makes off with all the dough. This opening sequence that sets the premise of the book is terrific. There is a whole novel just
    packed in that opening sequence. The balance of the book is devoted to Parker catching up with Uhl,
    chasing him from Bew York to Virginia to Pennsylvania. Along the way, other bad guys get wind of what Uhl is carting around and the race is on. Despite what Parker does in this story, he's not the bad guy here. He's almost an angel compared to some others in this book. The plot, the pacing, everything just works in this book as does Westlake's uncanny ability to create characters in just a sentence or two.

    3.5 & as good as the last, but I gave that 4 stars, so I'm trying to even out. It was another fun, screwed up Parker adventure. Nothing else to say without spoilers, though. Sorry.

    solid but not as satisfying as most Parkers
