Slayground: a Parker novel
He wrote a sort of sequel to this story - Butcher's Moon - and that's my next on the Parker pile to read. At one point Stark took a break (twenty plus years) between Parker books, so I'm going to try and read all the pre-break books first. Really solid stuff. And there is apparently a film version of this one that I'd love to see at some point. If you're interested in reading the series I probably wouldn't start with this one, but on the other hand if you really just want one hell of an exciting crime-thriller, this one reads as a great one-off.
