It was an impossible crime: knock off an entire North Dakota town called Copper Canyon - clean out the plant payroll, both banks, and all the stores in one night. Parker called it "science fiction," but with the right men (a score of them), he could figure it out to the last detail. It could work. If the men behaved like pros, cool and smart; if they didn't get impatient, start chasing skirts, or decide to take the opportunity to settle secret old scores…they just might pull it off.< /p>More

Best Parker Book Since The Outfit
Return To Form
Parker's interactions with women both before and after a job.
When Edgars reveals his pychotic side and starts shooting people and blowing the town up.
It was the perfect score. What could go wrong?
I prefer Stephen Thorne's reading than John Chancer's who tended to exaggerate the voices, sometimes quite differently than how I imagined them. While not quite as exciting as The Hunter (the original and still the best) and The Outfit, both of which feature a revenge theme, it is the best of the Parker heist stories so far and a return to form after the disappointing "The Mourner".
Weak 3 stars. Not enough suspense or unexpected.
