From the Publisher:
Master criminal Parker and his cohorts return to an abandoned country church where they had been forced to abandon the spoils of a bank heist, an endeavor during which he drives an old choir van and works to outmaneuver foes on both sides of the law.
Donald E. Westlake served in the U.S. Army and worked at a literary agency before beginning his writing career. Though he started as a writer's apprentice, churning out soft-core sex novels in the early '50s, Westlake went on to become a highly successful and diverse writer. He published his first novel, "The Mercenaries", in 1960, marking a string of dark crime novels that would characterize the early part of his career. From these beginnings, Westlake began to infuse a greater degree of humor into his novels, until he became primarily known for his comic crime capers. To his surprise, his novels "kept coming out funny," causing him to switch almost exclusively to plots like that of his 1975 novel "Two Much", which tells the story of a man pretending to be twins so that he can marry a set of twin heiresses. Westlake has also written under numerous pseudonyms, the most famous being Richard Stark, the name under which he wrote a series of grim mysteries featuring the professional thief Parker.
