The heist was a piece of cake. It didn't bother Parker that the priceless statue was in a Russian diplomat's house… because he had no scruples about ripping off a Red. It didn't bother Parker that his ex-girlfriend had blackmailed him into pulling this job… because he figured out how to make an extra fifty grand on the deal. It did bother Parker that somebody else was trying to steal the statue first - because being second wasn't Parker's style. Whether he was up against the mob or the KGB, Parker intended to beat them all at the stealing game. Of course, he didn't count on a double cross, a two-timing blonde, and one lethal luger aimed at making him not only second, but last. Dead last.

A Good Read, But There Are Better Parker Stories
Good, Not Great
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.
He's straight forward, gives a universal voice without exaggerating very much.
Not as much as previous Parker books.
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.
Book 4 good stand alone plot
