Parker 3: The Outfit by Richard Stark

Parker 3
The Outfit
by Richard Stark (Donald E. Westlake)
1963 Pocket Books

Picks up after the first installment where Parker threatened to unleash his network of thieves on the outfit's operations. After a failed assassination attempt, Parker does just that, and gambling dens and illegal banks across the county get hit. We get a couple heists in detail, as well as the procedures for how various rackets work.

As with the last installment, for me the weak spot was Parker himself, who disappears for long stretches before assassinating an outfit head.

Available from Amazon
