Parker – ohne Vorname, ohne Biographie – ist ein Einzelgänger, professionell bis zur Perfektion – als Verbrecher. Doch vor zehn Monaten wurde er bei einem Waffendeal von seiner eigenen Frau verraten, die mit Mal Resnick, einem Großmaul aus dem Verbrechersyndikat, gemeinsame Sache machte. Jetzt ist Parker zurück in der Stadt, ein einsamer Jäger, der nach allen Regeln der Kunst Rache nimmt. "The Hunter" wurde 1967 unter dem Titel "Point Blank" von John Boorman mit Lee Marvin verfilmt und erscheint jetzt in der Neuübersetzung von Nikolaus Stingl.

You probably haven’t ever noticed them. But they’ve noticed you. They notice everything. That’s their job. Sitting quietly in a nondescript car outside a bank making note of the tellers’ work habits, the positions of the security guards. Lagging a few car lengths behind the Brinks truck on its daily rounds. Surreptitiously jiggling the handle of an unmarked service door at the racetrack. They’re thieves. Heisters, to be precise. They’re pros, and Parker is far and away the best of them. If you’re planning a job, you want him in. Tough, smart, hardworking, and relentlessly focused on his trade, he is the heister’s heister, the robber’s robber, the heavy’s heavy. You don’t want to cross him, and you don’t want to get in his way, because he’ll stop at nothing to get what he’s after. Parker, the ruthless antihero of Richard Stark’s eponymous mystery novels, is one of the most unforgettable characters in hardboiled noir. Lauded by critics for his taut realism, unapologetic amorality, and razor-sharp prose-style—and adored by fans who turn each intoxicating page with increasing urgency—Stark is a master of crime writing, his books as influential as any in the genre. The University of Chicago Press has embarked on a project to return the early volumes of this series to print for a new generation of readers to discover—and become addicted to. In The Hunter, the first volume in the series, Parker roars into New York City, seeking revenge on the woman who betrayed him and on the man who took his money, stealing and scamming his way to redemption. “Westlake knows precisely how to grab a reader, draw him or her into the story, and then slowly tighten his grip until escape is impossible.”—Washington Post Book World “Elmore Leonard wouldn’t write what he does if Stark hadn’t been there before. And Quentin Tarantino wouldn’t write what he does without Leonard. . . . Old master that he is, Stark does all of them one better.”—Los Angeles Times “Donald Westlake’s Parker novels are among the small number of books I read over and over. Forget all that crap you’ve been telling yourself about War and Peace and Proust—these are the books you’ll want on that desert island.”—Lawrence Block

In 1962, Donald E. Westlake, writing under the pseudonym Richard Stark, created what would become one of the most important and enduring crime fiction series ever produced - Parker. Westlake wrote more than 20 Parker novels, many considered classics of the genre, and a number of which have transitioned to the big screen. Most notable of these is Point Blank, directed by John Boorman and starring Lee Marvin, released in 1967. Westlake received many accolades during his distinguished career, including being named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writer's of America, that prestigious organization's highest honor. Darwyn Cooke has adapted four Parker books as graphic novels so far. The first three, The Hunter, The Outfit, and The Score have all won Eisner and Harvey Awards. He will be providing all-new color illustrations for The Hunter, the first in a series of hardcover prose novels released in chronological order and featuring Cooke's art. The Hunter, the first book in the Parker series, is the story of a man who hits New York head-on like a shotgun blast to the chest. Betrayed by the woman he loves and double-crossed by his partner in crime, Parker makes his way cross-country with only one thought burning in his mind - to coldly exact his revenge and reclaim what was taken from him!

Between Parker’s 1961 debut and his return in the late 1990s, the world of crime changed considerably. Now fake IDs and credit cards had to be purchased from specialists; increasingly sophisticated policing made escape and evasion tougher; and, worst of all, money had gone digital—the days of cash-stuffed payroll trucks were long gone. But cash isn’t everything: Flashfire and Firebreak find Parker going after, respectively, a fortune in jewels and a collection of priceless paintings. In Flashfire, Parker’s in West Palm Beach, competing with a crew that has an unhealthy love of explosions; when things go sour, Parker finds himself shot and trapped—and forced to rely on a civilian to survive. Firebreak takes Parker to a palatial Montana "hunting lodge" where a dot-com millionaire hides a gallery of stolen old masters—which will fetch Parker a pretty penny if his team can just get it past the mansion’s tight security. The forests of Montana are an inhospitable place for a heister when well-laid plans fall apart, but no matter how untamed the wilderness, Parker’s guaranteed to be the most dangerous predator around. “Like all of Stark’s Parker novels, Firebreak is a brutal yet compelling glimpse into the amoral world of crime and revenge.”—Booklist “The action [in Flashfire] is nonstop. . . . The awful fascination in these Parker tales comes from knowing the protagonist will always do whatever is necessary to protect himself and to achieve his goals.”—Wall Street Journal

Als Touristen getarnt, die den herbstlichen Laubwald Neuenglands bewundern, logieren Parker und seine Freundin in einer Pension in der Nähe der verlassenen Kirche, wo die bei einem Banküberfall erbeuteten Millionen versteckt sind. Aber in der Zwischenzeit ist Dalesia, einer von Parkers Kumpeln, ausgebrochen, es wimmelt in der Gegend von Polizisten, Parkers Konterfei hängt überall aus, und eine Kopfgeldjägerin möchte sich ihre Prämie verdienen. Mit einem riskanten Plan kommen sie an die Beute und ziehen vor den Augen der Polizei mit dem Geld ab, jetzt getarnt als Mitglieder einer obskuren "Erlöserkirche". Aber dann tritt eine andere Bande auf den Plan und will ihnen die Beute abnehmen. Nach "Fragen Sie den Papagei" und "Keiner rennt für immer" ist dies der nächste Thriller, der den faszinierend coolen Helden Parker in Hochform zeigt.

Bankenfusion in der Kleinstadt. Parker erfährt davon von einem Vertrauensmann, dem allerdings nicht wirklich zu trauen ist. Komplizierter wird die Sache noch dadurch, dass die Frau des Bankdirektors ein Techtelmechtel mit dem Tippgeber hat. Außerdem sucht ein Kopfgeldjäger nach dem Spitzel, den Parker verschwinden lassen musste, noch bevor das Unternehmen überhaupt startete. Jeder will an das Geld, aber keiner hält sich an die Abmachungen, sodass der Aktionsplan für den Überfall ständig korrigiert werden muss - ein schwieriger Job für Parker, der für Präzision berüchtigt ist, aber auch dafür, dass er keine Kumpel kennt und kein Erbarmen mit Pfuschern. Nach Parkers glorreichem Comeback mit "Fragen Sie den Papagei" ist dies der zweite Thriller, der den faszinierend coolen Helden in Hochform zeigt. Viele Parker-Romane wurden in den USA verfilmt, darunter "Point Blank" mit Lee Marvin in der Hauptrolle.

The hunter becomes prey, as a heist goes sour and Parker finds himself trapped in a shuttered amusement park, besieged by a bevy of local mobsters. There are no exits from Fun Island. Outnumbered and outgunned, Parker can't afford a single miscalculation. He’s low on bullets—but, as anyone who’s crossed his path knows, that definitely doesn’t mean he’s defenseless. “Nobody tops Stark in his objective portrayals of a world of total amorality.” —New York Times “Energy and imagination light up virtually every page, as does some of the best hard-boiled prose ever to grace the noir genre.” —Publishers Weekly
