Description


Deadly Edge bids a brutal adieu to the 1960s as Parker robs a rock concert, and the heist goes south. Soon Parker finds himself--and his woman, Claire--menaced by a pair of sadistic, drug-crazed hippies. Parker has a score to settle while Claire's armed with her first rifle--and they're both ready to usher in the end of the Age of Aquarius.

"Richard Stark's Parker novels . . . are among the most poised and polished fictions of their time and, in fact, of any time." -- John Banville, Bookforum

"The Parkers read with the speed of pulp while unfolding with an almost Nabovokian wit and flair." -- Richard Rayner, Los Angeles Times
