Publisher's Summary

Steel-nerved master thief Parker has his eyes on a fat prize. The prize, a slow stuffed with money - a gambling casino on the Hudson River. It is not in Parker's nature to gamble, so he leaves nothing to chance. From the phony politician to the getaway boat, from bringing guns on board to getting the money off, Parker has it all planned. There are only a few problems....

The guy who tipped off Parker is a bureaucrat with a moral streak; the guy who's steering the getaway boat has unsavory friends with plenty of guns; and a reporter on the casino has enough sense to know that something isn't quite right. Suddenly, Parker's surefire plan is blowing up like fireworks on the Fourth-only these blow-ups kill people. With his luck going south, and no one left to trust but himself, Parkers must do what he does best: punch, claw, and kill his way out of the night.

This version is missing something?!

Great story; love this series. But the story of the actual heist is missing. Wth???
Also, the initial narration is almost unintelligible due to the accompanying music.
