In 1962- Donald E. Westlake- writing under the pseudonym Richard Stark- created what would become one of the most important and enduring crime fiction series' ever produced-PARKER. Westlake wrote more than 20 Parker novels- many are considered classics of the genre- and a number of which have transitioned to the big screen. Most notable of these is Point Blank- directed by John Boorman and starring Lee Marvin- released in 1967. Westlake received many accolades during his distinguished career- including being named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writer's of America- that prestigious organization's highest honor. Darwyn Cooke has adapted four Parker books as graphic novels so far- including the recently released Slayground. The first three- The Hunter- The Outfit- and The Score have all won Eisner and Harvey Awards. He will be providing all-new color illustrations for The Hunter- the first in a series of hardcover prose novels released in chronological order and featuring Cooke's art. The Hunter- the first book in the Parker series- is the story of a man who hits New York head-on like a shotgun blast to the chest. Betrayed by the woman he loves and double-crossed by his partner in crime- Parker makes his way cross-country with only one thought burning in his mind-to coldly exact his revenge and reclaim what was taken from him!
