Ask the Parrot by Richard Stark

read by Jeff Hardin

The latest instalment of author Richard Stark's series of books featuring career criminal Parker is instantly compelling. Filled with brooding, unhappy loners, this claustrophobic story of small-town cheats and vigilantes is both entertaining and thought-provoking, making the listener suspend instant moral judgement in search of the larger picture.

Jeff Harding has the perfect voice for this atmospheric thriller; the six hours slip by seamlessly. Ask the Parrot is an excellent companion for a long drive - and you won't want to stop until you get to the cliff-hanging denouement.

First class.
