If you could sum up The Mourner in three words, what would they be?
Good, Not Great
Would you recommend The Mourner to your friends? Why or why not?
I would not recommend this as the first Parker book to read. It ties up loose ends from the previous story but is not as good of a heist story as The Score. It's a solid read but with better Parker books to choose from, it's mainly for the hardcore Parker fans.
What about Stephen R. Thorne’s performance did you like?
He's straight forward, gives a universal voice without exaggerating very much.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not as much as previous Parker books.
Any additional comments?
This is solid, but not up to the level of the other Parker books I have read so far. It picks up where The Outfit lets off, but it doesn't expand much on that story which stands alone just fine, and it's not as good of a heist story as The Score which follows it.
This is a straight forward crime caper.
Parker is called on to steal a figurine, and you get to see how the heist is put together.
Taunt and well paced
