Publisher's Summary

Bank robberies should run like clockwork, right? If your name's Parker, you expect nothing less. Until, that is, one of your partners gets too greedy for his own good. The four-way split following a job leaves too small a take for George Uhl, who begins to pick off his fellow hoisters, one by one. The first mistake? That he doesn't begin things by putting a bullet in Parker. That means he won't get the chance to make a second. One of the darkest novels in the series, this caper proves the adage that no one crosses Parker and lives.

One of the better Parker novels

The Sour Lemon Score breaks the usual Parker formula of Parker gets a job, Parker plans a heist, Parker completes the heist despite complications. In this novel, more akin to the original story in the Hunter, Parker has to deal with the fallout of a job gone bad from the outset of the novel. It excels in that Parker faces real adversity in the form of difficult circumstances and a formidable new enemy. It also rings true in its characterizations, showing Parker's cold rationalism's limitations and a more brutal side to crime than the clean capers Parker usually undertakes. Parker fans will not be disappointed.

Parker at his best!

Revenge--Parker-style! Need I say more? It doesn't get any better. And the reader is excellent.
