Publisher's Summary

The Outfit was organized crime with a capital O. They were big. They were bad. They were brutal. And no crook ever crossed them and lived to enjoy it. Except Parker. So they wanted Parker dead, and a hit man proved they meant business. Too bad for the Outfit he missed. Ripping off the Outfit was the easy part of Parker's game. Going one-on-one with Bronson, the Outfit's Big Boss, was the hard part.

The Outfit (mafia) sends a hitman to kill Parker.

Parker makes the Outfit sorry it ever tangled with him.

I’m enjoying these stories and find myself wanting to read one right after the other. Like potato chips, you can’t eat just one. These are about bad guys. They rob. They kill. They don’t go to jail. They’re smart. It’s fun to be in this world for a change. A few times I’m delighted or surprised with something. I liked the plot in this one.

The narrator John Chancer was ok.

This is book 3 in the 24 book series. It’s about 2/3 or less than a typical novel length. It’s better to read the first three books in order because they have a flow. In book 1 Parker clashes with the Outfit. In book 2 Parker gets facial plastic surgery so the Outfit can’t find him. In book 3 the Outfit knows about Parker’s surgery, so Parker takes action.

Genre: noir crime fiction
