The Outfit | [Richard Stark]

The Outfit

The Outfit was organized crime with a capital O. They were big. They were bad. They were brutal. And no crook ever crossed them and lived to enjoy it. Except Parker. So they wanted Parker dead, and a hit man proved they meant business. Too bad for the Outfit he missed. Ripping off the Outfit was the easy part of Parker's game. Going one-on-one with Bronson, the Outfit's Big Boss, was the hard part.

    Story
    "The Outfit (mafia) sends a hitman to kill Parker."

    Parker makes the Outfit sorry it ever tangled with him.

    I’m enjoying these stories and find myself wanting to read one right after the other. Like potato chips, you can’t eat just one. These are about bad guys. They rob. They kill. They don’t go to jail. They’re smart. It’s fun to be in this world for a change. A few times I’m delighted or surprised with something. I liked the plot in this one.

    The narrator John Chancer was ok.

    This is book 3 in the 24 book series. It’s about 2/3 or less than a typical novel length. It’s better to read the first three books in order because they have a flow. In book 1 Parker clashes with the Outfit. In book 2 Parker gets facial plastic surgery so the Outfit can’t find him. In book 3 the Outfit knows about Parker’s surgery, so Parker takes action.

    Genre: noir crime fiction

    Story
    "Better than the movies"
    If you could sum up The Outfit in three words, what would they be?

    Dark, gritty, entertaining


    What other book might you compare The Outfit to and why?

    Maybe some Dashiel Hammett novels, but much darker.


    Have you listened to any of John Chancer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    He's no hero, but you want him on your side.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll be getting more of the series. Yes, they are dated but so are novels by Dash Hammett, Raymond Chandler and even Robert B. Parker.
