Publisher's Summary

Not many men knew what Parker did for a living, because what he did was steal. But Joe Sheer, a retired safecracker - also known in the business as a jugger - knew. He knew Parker's alias, his whereabouts, his plans... and because he knew too much, he knew to keep his mouth shut. Or die. But Joe was more than ready to trade what he knew for a soft mattress, windows without bars on them, and what every man needs - his freedom.
So Parker had come to Nebraska to find the old jugger... and probably murder him. But what Parker found was trouble: Joe was already six feet under; something very valuable was missing; and somebody was planning a funeral: Parker's. Too bad for somebody that Parker wasn't an easy man to kill.

Typical Parker with Poorly Chosen Reader

It's a typical, violent Parker novel. If you like them, you won't be starting here. The reader, however, sounds like he's never even walked the same street as a Parker. Ever.

He does some of the voices well: a policeman, women, an acquaintance early on. But he doesn't attempt to do a voice for Parker and his narrative voice doesn't suit the material - some other material maybe, but not this.

Contains important plot developments for the series as a whole.

Another great Parker novel.

Any additional comments?

Really amazing how each and every book feels fresh and new. The main plot is that Parker has to investigate the status of an old man who has sent him some senile sounding letters. The old man knows too much and a risk. As always, nothing is as it seems and Parker has to rise to the occasion.
