After he evens the score with those who betrayed him and recovers the money he was cheated out of from the syndicate, Parker is riding high. Until, that is, he''s fingered by a squealer who rats him out to The Outfit for the price they put on his head.
Annotation:
Following up his successful adaptation of Donald Westlake's THE HUNTER, illustrator Darwyn Cooke digs into his second Parker project, THE OUTFIT. (In between these two full-length books, the publishers released a short "Prelude" to THE OUTFIT, condensing and adapting THE MAN WITH THE GETAWAY FACE.) Just when Parker figured things were rolling his way--he'd gotten the money he was owed and his face was still unrecognizable to the Syndicate--some lousy so and so rats him out.

Praise

"More hard-boiled than a 10-minute egg...." - Laura Miller 11/28/2010

"Cooke distills Westlake's lean prose to concentrated bursts of scruffy chiaroscuro, looming negative space, pacing-tiger tension and ice-cold violence." - Douglas Wolk 12/05/2010

"It's a credit to both the source and Cooke's considerable skill, but straight-up crime fare (comics or not) doesn't get much gratifying." (starred review) - Ian Chipman 11/15/2010
