Octavo, boards. First edition. A novel featuring Parker, Westlake's enigmatic antihero, a professional thief and killer. "Although one of the most influential series of the sixties and seventies, the Parker novels have never been a huge popular success in the United States. They have shuttled from one publisher to another, while gaining critical acclaim and cult status, selling handsomely in foreign editions, and generating six motion pictures -- the income from which no doubt justified the effort put into the books by an author who is finally coming to be viewed as one of the major figures of the twentieth-century mystery. The impact Parker has had on the tough crime novel can be gauged by a sub-genre Stark has virtually invented: the so-called crook book." - Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, pp. 749-50. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with upper front corner lightly bumped. (#126054). N° de réf. du libraire 126054
