The Black Ice Score Read & Download ì 109 Appointed if he doesn’t Or because three hired morons have threatened to kill him and his woman if he does They thought they were buying an advantage but what they get is a predated death certificate. Parker helps retrieve diamonds from a corrupt African leader This is kind of by the numbers for a Parker book The parts with the opposing factions from the African country were pretty interesting but the rest was fairly standard I keep getting and irritated with Claire and her effect on Parker I prefer Parker when he is single minded and ruthlessThis isn t my favorite of the Parkers by any stretch but it IS a Parker book thereby making it a worthwhile read I would suggest this for the completist For those new to Parker start with The Hunter

The Black Ice Score Read & Download ì 109 A corrupt African colonel has converted half his country's wealth into diamonds and smuggled them to a Manhattan safe house Four upstanding citizens plan to rescue their new nation by stealing the diam. Parker has taken his girlfriend Claire to New York so she can do some shopping but he gets repeatedly approached by people who think he s in on some kind of score An African dictator has fled his country with a fortune in diamonds and one group wants to hire Parker to plan a way to steal them so they can take them back to Africa and use the money to build the nation up A group of white colonialists are mad that they got booted out and want to steal the diamonds to install their own puppet government and reclaim their property And one con man just wants to steal the diamonds for himselfThis is kind of an oddly flat Parker novel despite having some new elements in it For one Parker is hired solely as a planner of the robbery and Claire is involved than usual in the story But in the end there s the usual robbery with unexpected twist and Parker improvising at the last minuteWhile Parker is his usual no nonsense self for most of this one it also shows a few glimpses that there may be a bit to him than Stark aka Westlake has shown before Claire notes that Parker does have a bit of a taste for the robberies that are a challenge and reuire elaborate planning which differs from Parker s usual claim that it s all about the money Parker also seems to care about Claire than I thought him capable of I always had the impression that Claire was just kind of convenient for Parker It made sense that a guy who liked sex but didn t really like interacting with people would have one steady girlfriend who didn t bug him and stayed out of his business but here we get the feeling that Parker may just give a damn about herNot a bad book I think Westlake was incapable of writing a bad book It s just that Parker doesn t seem uite as ruthless as usual and to me Asshole Parker Fun Parker
