Parker – ohne Vorname, ohne Biographie – ist ein Einzelgänger, professionell bis zur Perfektion – als Verbrecher. Doch vor zehn Monaten wurde er bei einem Waffendeal von seiner eigenen Frau verraten, die mit Mal Resnick, einem Großmaul aus dem Verbrechersyndikat, gemeinsame Sache machte. Jetzt ist Parker zurück in der Stadt, ein einsamer Jäger, der nach allen Regeln der Kunst Rache nimmt. "The Hunter" wurde 1967 unter dem Titel "Point Blank" von John Boorman mit Lee Marvin verfilmt und erscheint jetzt in der Neuübersetzung von Nikolaus Stingl.

You probably haven’t ever noticed them. But they’ve noticed you. They notice everything. That’s their job. Sitting quietly in a nondescript car outside a bank making note of the tellers’ work habits, the positions of the security guards. Lagging a few car lengths behind the Brinks truck on its daily rounds. Surreptitiously jiggling the handle of an unmarked service door at the racetrack. They’re thieves. Heisters, to be precise. They’re pros, and Parker is far and away the best of them. If you’re planning a job, you want him in. Tough, smart, hardworking, and relentlessly focused on his trade, he is the heister’s heister, the robber’s robber, the heavy’s heavy. You don’t want to cross him, and you don’t want to get in his way, because he’ll stop at nothing to get what he’s after. Parker, the ruthless antihero of Richard Stark’s eponymous mystery novels, is one of the most unforgettable characters in hardboiled noir. Lauded by critics for his taut realism, unapologetic amorality, and razor-sharp prose-style—and adored by fans who turn each intoxicating page with increasing urgency—Stark is a master of crime writing; his books as influential as any in the genre. The University of Chicago Press has embarked on a project to return the early volumes of this series to print for a new generation of readers to discover—and become addicted to. Parker works with a group of professional con men in The Score on his biggest job yet—robbing an entire town in North Dakota. “Whatever Stark writes, I read. He’s a stylist, a pro, and I thoroughly enjoy his attitude.”—Elmore Leonard “Westlake knows precisely how to grab a reader, draw him or her into the story, and then slowly tighten his grip until escape is impossible.”—Washington Post Book World “Donald Westlake’s Parker novels are among the small number of books I read over and over. Forget all that crap you’ve been telling yourself about War and Peace and Proust—these are the books you’ll want on that desert island.”—Lawrence Block

A high-octane trip across America, The Score finds Parker assembling the best caper men he can find to knock over his most audacious target yet: an entire town. They scheme, they prepare, and they execute with military precision, unaware that the whole thing is about to blow up in their faces. Long considered a high water mark in the Parker series, this new graphic adaptation brings the original to violent, double-crossing life. Darwyn Cooke, Eisner-Award winning creator of DC: The New Frontier, continues adapting Richard Stark's genre-defining Parker novels with his signature pulp flair in this third installment. A hard-nosed thief, Parker is Richard Stark's most famous creation, and Stark, in turn, is the most famous pen name of Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Donald E. Westlake.

A corrupt African colonel has converted half his country's wealth into diamonds and smuggled them to a Manhattan safe house. Four upstanding citizens plan to rescue their new nation by stealing the diamonds back—with the help of a “specialist”—Parker, that is. He has the best references in town. Will Parker break his rule against working with amateurs and help them because his woman would be disappointed if he doesn’t? Or because three hired morons have threatened to kill him and his woman if he does? They thought they were buying an advantage, but what they get is a predated death certificate. “Crime fiction stripped down—as it was meant to be. . . . Oh, how the pages keep turning.”—Philadelphia Inquirer “Old master that he is, Stark does all of them one better.”—Los Angeles Times

Bankenfusion in der Kleinstadt. Parker erfährt davon von einem Vertrauensmann, dem allerdings nicht wirklich zu trauen ist. Komplizierter wird die Sache noch dadurch, dass die Frau des Bankdirektors ein Techtelmechtel mit dem Tippgeber hat. Außerdem sucht ein Kopfgeldjäger nach dem Spitzel, den Parker verschwinden lassen musste, noch bevor das Unternehmen überhaupt startete. Jeder will an das Geld, aber keiner hält sich an die Abmachungen, sodass der Aktionsplan für den Überfall ständig korrigiert werden muss - ein schwieriger Job für Parker, der für Präzision berüchtigt ist, aber auch dafür, dass er keine Kumpel kennt und kein Erbarmen mit Pfuschern. Nach Parkers glorreichem Comeback mit "Fragen Sie den Papagei" ist dies der zweite Thriller, der den faszinierend coolen Helden in Hochform zeigt. Viele Parker-Romane wurden in den USA verfilmt, darunter "Point Blank" mit Lee Marvin in der Hauptrolle.
