Additional Information

AFTER 16 YEARS ON THE RUN, 
WOULD NOLAN BURY THE HATCHET WITH THE MOB…
OR WOULD THEY BURY HIM FIRST?

They don’t come tougher than Nolan – but even a hardened professional thief can’t fight off the entire Chicago mafia.  So when an old friend offers to broker a truce, Nolan accepts the terms.  All he has to do is pull off one last heist – and trust the Mob not to double cross him.

Fortunately, Nolan has a couple of things going for him: an uncanny knack for survival and an unmatched hunger for revenge…

Donald Westlake, writing under the pseudonym Richard Stark, penned a number of wonderfully lean crime novels featuring Parker, a thief who coolly goes about his business. Versions of Parker have been portrayed by such actors as Peter Coyote, Lee Marvin and Mel Gibson, but the literary version is physically enigmatic, as he is rarely described. Overall, however, I'd have to peg Parker as being in his thirties: old enough to be wise to the ways of the criminal world, yet not so old as to be in physical decline.

Heist men tend to have short life spans, but what if Parker made it to middle age? He might be a lot like Nolan, the antihero center of Max Allan Collins's Two for the Money. Nearing 50, Nolan knows his days of larceny are behind him, and he'd like to retire. Of course, there are problems with doing so, most particularly with a crime boss who wants to see him dead.

I was curious about these since Collins wrote these as a tributes/rip off to the Parker novels by Richard Stark ( I'm a big fan). The Nolan books focus on a single named thief centered in the Midwest. These 2 in one e-book center around a job, a double-cross, and the retribution that follow. I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the Parker novels or any of Collins other excellent books.
Max Alan Collins has become one of my favorite writers, mostly through the awesome Quarry series. This comes close to one of those in entertainment value. The ending was a small letdown though, and I missed a little of the humor from the Quarry books. I enjoyed it less than a Quarry novel but probably more than his Heller series, which also are good.
