Melander likes to do things flashy. When Parker finds himself working with Melander on a bank heist in a mid-sized midwestern city, his job is throwing a Molotov cocktail into a gas station. The resulting explosion sends the cops and fire trucks to the east side of town, while Melander and his gang plunder the bank on the west side. Parker doesn't care for flashy. And he doesn't care for Melander's plan for a new heist, one that will clean out Palm Beach of a lot of very expensive jewelry. But what Parker really dislikes is Melander's intention to use the proceeds from the bank job to capitalize the Palm Beach job . . . including Parker's cut. Melander is very polite about Parker's not wanting to go in on the Florida heist, and very sincere about paying Parker his share . . . with interest . . . after the jewelry job goes down. But that's not the way Parker works. Now he's tailing the gang down South, with his own plan for getting his own back . . . and the entire swag of gems besides.

"Professional thief Parker (no first name) has been starring in books since 1961, and his toughness, brutality, and deadliness are legendary. He's also been portrayed in several movies, though the recent release of Parker, starring Jason Statham, was the first time the main character in the film used the same name as the books. The eponymous 2013 flick was based on the events of the novel Flashfire, in which Parker has been stiffed by his companions in a robbery. Naturally, he decides to get back at them by figuring out their next target and robbing it first. But first he's got to deal with the assassins he's got on his tail."
