Lemons Never Lie: An Alan Grofield Novel

by Richard Stark

University of Chicago Press | April 1, 2012 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Not yet rated | write a review
Donald E. Westlake is one of the greats of crime fiction. Under the pseudonym Richard Stark, he wrote twenty-four fast-paced, hardboiled novels featuring Parker, a shrewd career criminal with a talent for heists. Using the same nom de plume, Westlake also completed a separate series in the Parker universe, starring Alan Grofield, an occasional colleague of Parker. While he shares events and characters with several Parker novels, Grofield is less calculating and more hot-blooded than Parker; think fewer guns, more dames.
 
Not that there isn't violence and adventure aplenty. Available as an e-book-only edition, Lemons Never Lie-a taut thriller that finds Grofield recruited by a man named Myers for a sketchy brewery heist. But when Grofield gets cold feet, he has to decide if it's riskier to go through with the plot, or to say no to Myers.
 
With a new foreword by Sarah Weinman that situates the Grofield series within Westlake's work as a whole, these novels are an exciting addition to any crime fiction fan's library.
