Parker Novels; 1.3 x 7.6 x 5.2 Inches
- With a "Bear in Mind" and a "New and Noteworthy Paperback" citation in the New York Times for Breakout (Mysterious Press, 2002), Richard Stark continues to garner some of the highest praise in crime fiction.
- Backflash (Mysterious Press, 1998) and Comeback (Mysterious Press, 1997), both Parker novels, were named New York Times Notable Books of the Year.
- Mel Gibson's Payback, the most recent film version of The Hunter (Avon, 1984), was a major hit. Joel Silver Productions has acquired the film rights to Backflash (Mysterious Press, 1998), The Man With the Getaway Face (Mysterious Press, 1998), and Butcher's Moon (Random House, 1974).
- With the backing of the creative team that developed The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and Oz, Donald E. Westlake, Richard Stark's frequent alter ego, is hard at work on a pilot for his own original HBO series.
