Richard Stark – Butcher’s Moon (1974)

ButchersMoon

Date Finished: November 28, 2015

The 16th and final of the original Parker run, this one feels like it is going out on a grand scale. Parker returns to the scene of Slayground, seeking the loot he left behind. It is gone so he goes to war with the local mob, thinking they have his money. It turns out that there are factions in that mob and Parker calls in all his old cronies to destroy the mob and their operation. Everything ends with a huge shoot-out, with Parker riding off for 23 years until Comeback. A lot less of the weird characters in this one and much more scheming and action, as Parker and his associates carry out multiple operations.
