Not yet rated | write a review

Deadly Edge bids a brutal adieu to the 1960s as Parker robs a rock concert, and the heist goes south. Soon Parker finds himself-and his woman, Claire-menaced by a pair of sadistic, drug-crazed hippies. Parker has a score to settle while Claire's armed with her first rifle-and they're both ready to usher in the end of the Age of Aquarius.

"Richard Stark's Parker novels . . . are among the most poised and polished fictions of their time and, in fact, of any time." - John Banville, Bookforum

"The Parkers read with the speed of pulp while unfolding with an almost Nabovokian wit and flair." - Richard Rayner, Los Angeles Times

About the Author

Richard Stark was one of the many pseudonyms of Donald E. Westlake (1933-2008), a prolific author of noir crime fiction. In 1993, the Mystery Writers of America bestowed the society's highest honor on Westlake, naming him a Grand Master.

Editorial Reviews

"The UC Press mission, to reprint the 1960s Parker novels of Richard Stark (the late Donald Westlake), is wholly admirable. The books have been out of print for decades, and the fast-paced, hard-boiled thrillers featuring the thief Parker are brilliant."
