When it comes to heists, Parker believes in some cardinal rules. On this job, he breaks two of them: never bring a dame along - especially not one you like - and never, ever, work with amateurs. Nevertheless, with the help of a creep named Billy, and the lure of a classy widow, he agrees to set up a heist of a coin convention. But Billy’s a rookie with no idea how to pull off a score, and the lady soon becomes a major distraction. The Rare Coin Score marks the first appearance of Claire, who will steal Parker’s heister’s heart - while together they steal two million dollars’ worth of coins.

3 ½ stars. Engaging.
Another great Richard Stark heist novel.
The plan is secondary in this tale, it's more about the relationships and personalities. The Rare Coin Score was a fun read, plenty of twists. You know that Parker always comes out on top somehow but nothing ever goes cleanly whenever you get a room of criminals involved. The newbie criminals were a nice touch as well; first timer jitters and all. Great book.
