The Green Eagle Score: A Parker Novel (Parker Novels) - Richard Stark Marty Fusco convinces Parker to plan a job robbing an air force base of its payroll. Fusco's ex-wife's current beau is the inside man. Things seem to go smoothly, until the ex-wife starts telling the details of the plan to her psychiatrist...

The Green Eagle Score, no idea why it's called that, is another entry in the highly enjoyable Parker series. This one strays from the usual Parker mold and takes the route of The Seventh. The job goes smoothly but the split doesn't go right. It makes for an engaging story. The best parts of the Parker stories are watching him handle things when the situation takes an unexpected turn, which they always do. Parker's a shark and never gives up.

Not many gripes about this one. The job was plausible, as usual. I'm surprised Parker went for it with all the inherent complications though. On a side note, there were a few punctuation mistakes in this one.

Another great Parker story. That's all I have to say about that.
