ABOUT THIS BOOK

Deadly Edge bids a brutal adieu to the 1960s as Parker robs a rock concert, and the heist goes south. Soon Parker finds himself—and his woman, Claire—menaced by a pair of sadistic, drug-crazed hippies. Parker has a score to settle while Claire’s armed with her first rifle—and they’re both ready to usher in the end of the Age of Aquarius.


“Richard Stark’s Parker novels . . . are among the most poised and polished fictions of their time and, in fact, of any time.” — John Banville, Bookforum


“The Parkers read with the speed of pulp while unfolding with an almost Nabovokian wit and flair.” — Richard Rayner, Los Angeles Times
