This classic novel (first published in 1962 under the title The Hunter) introduced readers to the character of master thief Parker - a character immortalised on film by Lee Marvin in the 1967 film Point Blank. This month, the new film Parker, sees Jason Statham (together with Jennifer Lopez) taking on the role of this cult antihero. Parker is one of the most unforgettable characters in hardboiled noir; Richard Stark, a master of crime writing, lauded by critics for his taut realism, unapologetic amorality, and razor-sharp prose-style — his books as influential as any in the genre. There's no better time to discover or reacquaint yourself with this great novel. 

You probably haven’t ever noticed them. But they’ve noticed you. They notice everything.They’re thieves. Heisters, to be precise. They’re pros, and Parker is far and away the best of them. If you’re planning a job, you want him in. Tough, smart, hardworking, and relentlessly focused on his trade, he is the heister’s heister, the robber’s robber, the heavy’s heavy. You don’t want to cross him, and you don’t want to get in his way, because he’ll stop at nothing to get what he’s after.
