In Ask the Parrot, Parker and his two cohorts had stolen the assets of a bank in transit, but the police heat was so great they could only escape if they left the money behind.

In this follow-up novel, Parker and his associates plot to reclaim the loot, which they hid in the choir loft of an unused country church. As they implement the plan, people on both sides of the law use the forces at their command to stop Parker and seize the money for themselves.

Remorseless as ever, Parker will do whatever it takes to redeem his prize, no matter who gets hurt in the process. His new getaway van may have 'Holy Redeemer Choir' emblazoned on its doors, but Parker is no choirboy.

About the Author

Richard Stark has been hailed as one of the inventors and one of the true masters of noir crime fiction. Stark's recent Parker novels, Comeback and Backflash, were each selected as a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. His first novel, The Hunter, became the classic 1967 movie Point Blank. Thirty years later, The Hunter was adapted again by Hollywood, in the hit Mel Gibson movie Payback. Richard Stark was also, at times, the mystery Grand Master Donald E. Westlake.

      Comments about Dirty Money:

      This is the final Parker book and sees him working through the usual labyrinthine set of events before coming through. If you like tough crime novels, this one is for you (along with the rest of the series). Writers as diverse as Lawrence Block and John Banville are fans of these books and it's not hard to see why.

      'Parker is probably the genre's most captivating anti-hero . he's showing little signs of ageing and neither is Stark's prose - it's as lean, hungry and tightly plotted as ever . superior entertainment.' Daily Mirror (Book of the Week). Daily Mirror
