(pb; 1963: second book in the Parker series. Also published under the title Steel Hit.)
From the back cover:
"Master thief Parker comes to a plastic surgeon in Nebraska with a face that the Outfit--the New York syndicate--wants to decorate with a bullet. But nothing can keep Parker away from his old life of crime--and the major heist of an armored car somewhere in New Jersey."
Getaway is as brutal, fast-moving and entertaining as its series-source novel, The Hunter. Also, as with Hunter, there's not one wasted or ineffective word in this first Parker series sequel. Worth owning, this.
Followed by The Outfit.
