Author Info
Richard Stark
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.
From the Publisher
Editors Note 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 HANDLE, Parker is enlisted by the mob to knock off an island casino guarded by speedboats and heavies, forty miles from the Texas coast.
