Racing through the backwoods of Massachusetts and on the verge of being taken down for one of the biggest and most disastrous bank heists the state has ever seen, Parker runs right into the barrel of a gun pointed from the wrong side of the law. A quiet and angry recluse with only a silent parrot for company in his seclusion, Tom Lindahl saves Parker from the police dogs, but enmeshes him in yet another in a long line of dubious, highly dangerous, but seriously profitable jobs. Far more than some aimless indigent, holed up in a shack in the woods, Lindahl is a man built on rage and driven by a thirst for revenge. A whistleblower whom nobody heard, a man tossed aside by a corrupt political establishment, Lindahl plans to rob them of their lucre and needs Parker's help.… (mais)

The poor parrot! ( )
  francesanngray | Apr 6, 2021 |
Ask The Parrot (2006) (Parker #27) by Richard Stark. Another in the fun ‘Parker’ series, this follows in the wake of a bank robbery. Parker is literally running from the law when he meets up with a man in the woods. Recognized for what he is, Parker is slightly surprised when the man offers him refuge at his home.
The pair escape the police and head to the man’s home where he relates his story to Parker, detailing just why he saved him. Seems the fellow wants some type of revenge on the race track that let him go a few years earlier, destroying his life and marriage. Now, with the help of Parker, he wants to rob the track.
As usual this is a fast past, well plotted book. The police are to be avoided but it becomes inevitable that they are involved. There is an attempt at blackmail by a pair of brothers who recognize Parker. and they have to be dealt with in a manner that is fitting. Parker is the competent one in the entire group, quick-witted and, once satisfied with the situation, quick to action.
There is a reason this is a long running series. Every book is a satisfying read that will leave you ready for more. Just don’t feel too sorry for that parrot. ( )

The penultimate Parker picks up exactly where the ante-penultimate Parker ended. As usual Parker has to deal with situations not entirely of his making and, as usual, he is able to improvise to turn a buck and save his own skin. Only one more to go and I'll be sorry when it's done. ( )

What can I say about Donald Westlake/Richard Stark that I haven't already said. Everything is great as usual. This was 2nd in the final trilogy of Parker Books. I am looking forward to reading the next one. ( )

This is more of a psychological mystery. After a bank robbery, the three robbers are fleeing. Parker tries his luck in a rural area, but is put by a resident (Tom Lindahl), not by giving Parker to the police or accusing him directly as a bank robber. It is much more a purposeful community. Parker takes part in the search for himself. He can deceive many community members, but not all. Lindahl has not participated in community activities for a long time. He worked until his release on a racecourse. There is every Saturday night, the money stored in the cellar. Since he still has a key to the race track. he has long been fond of making money and starting a new life in another place. Parker was just about to get him going. Parker encourages and supports Lindahl by killing unloved persons.
The story is written very subtle. ( )

When the helicopter swept northward and lifted out of sight over the top of the hill, Parker stepped away from the tree he'd waited beside and continued his climb.
