The Green Eagle Score: A Parker Novel

Here’s Parker—planning to steal the entire payroll of an Air Force base in upstate New York, with help from Marty Fusco, fresh out of the pen, and a smart-aleck finance clerk named Devers. Holed up with family in a scrappy little town, the hoisters prepare for the risky job by trying to shorten the odds. But the ice is thinner than Parker likes to think—and Marty’s ex-wife is much more complicated.

    Story
    "Not as good a some of the others in the series,"

    but I still love the series.

    Parker seemed out of character in this story because he allowed one of the wives to sit in on the planning sessions. Her husband was a key player, but the wife had no part in the heist. Of course that was the reason things went sour and it was predictable. This wasn’t the author’s best.

    Most of the story was ok - planning and conducting the heist. The good part was at the end when things went wrong and Parker takes unexpected action.

    There is a forward by Dennis Lehane (dated 2010) in the Kindle version and/or paperback. I was disappointed that the forward was missing from this audiobook.

    The narrator Stephen R. Thorne was good, but I wish he had a rougher, darker, or more menacing voice for Parker. His Parker voice was too clean cut and normal sounding.

    THE SERIES:
    This is book 10 in the 24 book series. These stories are about bad guys. They rob. They kill. They’re smart. Most don’t go to jail. Parker is the main bad guy, a brilliant strategist. He partners with different guys for different jobs in each book.

    If you are new to the series, I suggest reading the first three and then choose among the rest. A few should be read in order since characters continue in a sequel fashion. Those are listed below (with my star ratings). The rest can be read as stand alones.

    The first three books in order:
    4 stars. The Hunter (Point Blank movie with Lee Marvin 1967) (Payback movie with Mel Gibson)
    3 ½ stars. The Man with the Getaway Face (The Steel Hit)
    4 stars. The Outfit.

    Read these two in order:
    5 stars. Slayground (Bk #14)
    5 stars. Butcher’s Moon (Bk #16)

    Read these four in order:
    4 ½ stars. The Sour Lemon Score (Bk #12)
    2 ½ stars. Firebreak (Bk #20)
    (not read) Nobody Runs Forever (Bk #22)
    2 ½ stars. Dirty Money (Bk #24)

    Others that I gave 4 or more stars to:
    The Jugger (Bk #6), The Seventh (Bk#7), The Handle (Bk #8), Deadly Edge (Bk#13), Flashfire (Bk#19)
