The Score | [Richard Stark]

The Score

It was an impossible crime: knock off an entire North Dakota town called Copper Canyon - clean out the plant payroll, both banks, and all the stores in one night. Parker called it "science fiction," but with the right men (a score of them), he could figure it out to the last detail. It could work. If the men behaved like pros, cool and smart; if they didn't get impatient, start chasing skirts, or decide to take the opportunity to settle secret old scores…they just might pull it off.

    Story
    "Weak 3 stars. Not enough suspense or unexpected."

    This wasn’t as good as some of the others in the series, but it was ok. I’m intrigued with Parker, and that keeps me reading.

    Edgars has an idea for stealing from several businesses at the same time in a North Dakota town. He tells a guy who brings in Parker to plan and run it. It will require 12 to 20 guys.

    The ending was weak. Things felt hanging and not wrapped up well. I would have liked a different ending for some of the good guys who were victims. And I wanted something really bad to happen to Edgars. What happened to him was not painful enough.

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

    This is book 5 in the 24 book series. It’s about half the length of a typical novel. If you want to be selective, you could skip this one without hurting the flow of the series.

    Genre: noir crime fiction
