Comeback, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


The heist went down while the people prayed. An angel walked with sagging shoulders - he was Parker's inside man, dressed in wings and robes and destined to be a problem.

An hour later, Parker, Liss, and Mackey were out in the shimmering heat of a stadium parking lot with four duffel bags full of cash.

Then the double cross began. Now the half-million-dollar robbery of a Christian crusade is drawing a crowd of cops, crooks, and the evangelist's own unrelenting security man, a tough ex-Marine who trusts nobody and nothing.

What began at a gathering of the faithful has moved into the realm of night.

Here every move has a countermove, every man is on his own, and every lie leads to the deadliest moments of truth

Review by

Parker returns after a hiatus over 20 years in which he has been living with his girlfriend beside a New Jersey lake. When old partners invite him to rob a TV evangelist's road show, he comes out of retirement. The details of the heist are all carefully planned but a series of unrelated small mistakes culminate in catastrophe from which Parker escapes through his quick wit and utter lack of compunction. Stark/Westlake has picked up his old character with all the panache he ever had. It is great to see the return of an old favourite in such fine fettle.
