Review of: Slayground by Richard Stark, NLS DB-77061

This noir fiction is one of many from a series by Donald Westlake, writing as Richard Stark. His character, Parker, is a professional thief who’s done it all. In this Winter story, he finds himself marooned in Fun Island, a deserted amusement park, after an armored car heist goes wrong. The mirrors, the wax jurors, the challenging knife throws, the crooked cops, the local mafia, the snow, the cold, and the $73,000 keep everyone running, and will keep you reading.
