Parker, whose getaway car crashes after a heist, manages to elude capture with his loot by breaking into an amusement park that is closed for the winter.

From then on it's a game of cat and mouse, one played out through closed rides of the abandoned carnival… a game that slowly starts to favor the mouse.

Includes the Eisner award-winning short story "The 7th," previously only available in the Martini Edition
