From the Publisher
Sometimes mystery master Donald E. Westlake is the author of
uproarious crime capers. Sometimes he has a mean streak-and its
name is Parker. From his noir classicThe Man with the Getaway
Faceto his recent novelNobody Runs Forever, whenever
Westlake writes as Stark, he lets Parker run loose-a ruthless
criminal in a world of vulnerable "straights."
On a sunny October afternoon a man is running up a hill. He''s not
dressed for running. Below him are barking police dogs and waiting
up ahead is a stranger-with a rifle, a life full of regrets, and a
parrot at home who will mutely witness just how much trouble the
runner, Parker, can bring into an ordinary life.
The rabbit hunter is Tom Lindahl, a small-town lonely heart nursing
a big-time grudge against the racetrack that fired him. He knows
from the moment he sees Parker that he''s met a professional
thief-and a man with murder in his blood. Rescuing Parker from the
chase hounds, Lindahl invites the fugitive into his secluded home.
He plans to rip off his former employer and exact a deadly measure
of revenge-if he can get Parker to help.
But Tom doesn''t know Parker and that the desperate criminal will
do anything to survive-no matter who has to die...
