The Score by Richard Stark: a short review

Not my cup of tea, but certainly readable. Decidedly hard-boiled. 3 1/2 stars for this.


My copy is a free University of Chicago Press ebook; they’re hoping I’ll buy the rest of Stark’s Parker set after completing this gift copy. As loss leaders go, though, this is a disaster. A bad scan; about the quality of your typical Google Books effort. There are mis-scanned characters throughout the book, lost paragraph breaks on nearly every page, and it’s just generally frustrating to read. Something’s wrong with this picture. Half a star, at best, for this effort.
