Parker, a professional thief, is on the run after a country town bank robbery goes wrong. There are road blocks everywhere and search parties with bloodhounds are in the woods. As they close in on Parker he is confronted by a local with a shotgun. But this citizen is not out to arrest him; he wants Parker to help him with his own nefarious plans. So Parker enters into a queasy partnership with an embittered recluse, whose only companion is a speechless parrot, and finds himself joining the posse looking for him! Ask The Parrot is a masterpiece of lean writing and tight plotting, the latest in Richard Stark's Parker series which has won him a universal following.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is classic Richard Stark, the grandmaster of American crime fiction, who brought Parker back to life by popular demand after a 20-year break. Parker, of course, is probably the genre's most captivating anti-hero ... he's showing little signs of ageing and neither is Stark's prose - it's as lean, hungry and tightly plotted as ever ... superior entertainment' Daily Mirror. * Daily Mirror *
'Stark is one of the great exponents of American noir crime fiction and Parker is one of his most enduring creations' Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *
'The writing is as stripped down as a drag racer and the action is brutal and powerful' The Scotsman. * Scotsman *
'Well-written, exciting and hugely entertaining ... Stark's crisp, convincing dialogue is as good as Elmore Leonard' The Times. * The Times *
