The guy who tipped off Parker is a bureaucrat with a moral streak; the guy who's steering the getaway boat has unsavory friends with plenty of guns; and a reporter on the casino has enough sense to know that something isn't quite right. Suddenly, Parker's surefire plan is blowing up like fireworks on the Fourth-only these blow-ups kill people. With his luck going south, and no one left to trust but himself, Parkers must do what he does best: punch, claw, and kill his way out of the night.
