Richard Stark’s Parker: The Outfit by Darwyn CookePosted: January 3, 2013 Filed under: Books, Comic | Tags: Books, Crime Fiction, Darwyn Cooke, Donald E. Westlake, English, Parker, Richard Stark 1 Comment
Parker from The Hunter is still in rage and waging a full fledged war on the Outfit, a US undercover gambling syndicate stretching coast to coast. More bodies rolling, more action, more fun.
Second novel was much more gripping than the first – at least, to my taste – and much more complex, both narratively and graphically. Never read the original, so hard for me to compare that to the base material. The built-in pages with description of various hits were a gem – but not only they.
I am seriously considering forgoing some sleep tonight and reading the third part The Score in one go. Oh, well, tomorrow is another day.
