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 goes under the knife in The Man with the Getaway Face, changing his face to escape the mob and a contract on his life. Along the way he scores his biggest heist yet: an armored car in New Jersey, stuffed with cash. “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 “Elmore Leonard wouldn’t write what he does if Stark hadn’t been there before. And Quentin Tarantino wouldn’t write what he does without Leonard. . . . Old master that he is, Stark does all of them one better.”—Los Angeles Times “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

Life was meant to be easy. At least that was the way he’d planned it ... After completing a two-year exchange with the Royal Australian Navy, Lieutenant Aidan Grifford, RN, set off to see Australia. An experienced sailor, “seeing the sights” also provides plenty of opportunities to engage in his passion ... yacht racing. The top end of yacht racing is a rich man’s game. Aidan is not rich; not even close. All he has is his home - a twenty-five year old yacht that he has painstakingly restored - a group of close friends and a desire to find a woman to love and his place in the world. When an invitation comes to race in the Whitsunday regattas, Aidan can’t refuse. But the best laid plans bring him more trouble than he bargains for. Crewing aboard The Getaway at Hamilton Island Race Week proves to be a life-changing experience, but Aidan soon discovers that the changes are not for the best. When The Getaway is found drifting and abandoned seventy miles out to sea, Aidan’s connection to the yacht soon puts him front and centre in the police investigation and right in the firing line of one of yacht racing’s richest and most powerful financiers. Sucked into a liquid quagmire riddled with lies, deceit, deception and danger, Aidan fights to keep his boat, his new girlfriend, his life ... and half a million dollars that he found hidden on board The Getaway ...
