Richard Stark is one of the preeminent authors-and inventors-of noir crime fiction. Stark's recent Parker novels Comeback and Backflash were selected as New York Times Notable Books of the Year. His first novel, The Hunter, became the classic 1967 movie Point Blank. Thirty years later The Hunter was adapted again by Hollywood, in the hit Mel Gibson movie Payback.

Richard Stark is also, at times, mystery Grand Master Donald E. Westlake.

Comments

Adobe Reader is a tiny free application used to read epub formatted ebooks.

You can download the latest version from adobe http://get.adobe.com/reader/
Thanks, Bookeek. I love the Parker novels. This torrent simplifies things for me very nicely.

A sincere thanks, also, to Mr. Westlake. RIP, Donald.
Thanks for this. Just saw the trailer for the new Statham flick and that got me interested in the series. Wikipedia can't seem to decide if the film is based on /The Hunter/ or /Flashfire/. Does anyone know which it actually is?

For the record, Adobe Reader is anything but tiny. It is bloated and excessively resource hungry. My laptop grinds to a halt every time I run it even though it has no problem watching movies with multiple OpenOffice documents open, dozens of tabs in Opera, and multiple documents open in Foxit (a free PDF reader that actually is relatively tiny; details below).

The last time I tried to substitute Adobe for Foxit in that arrangement the poor thing crashed. Since then Adobe has only existed so that Calibre can load DRMed books onto our readers (nevermind the fact that DRM does nothing to slow down pirates – as evidenced by TPB – but greatly hinders legitimate users; thankfully some companies have finally figured that out).

For checking epubs before loading them onto my ereader I use the free reader bundled with Calibre (http://calibre-ebook.com/), possibly the most common e-book/-reader management software there is. If you have an ereader then you may well already have an exceptional epub viewer simply by having Calibre installed. My only complaint is that he doesn't make the reader available as a stand-alone download.

For PDFs, Foxit is the smallest, fastest reader I've found that doesn't sacrifice features. Get it at http://www.foxitsoftware.com/Secure_PDF_Reader/.

Inspired by Bookeek's comment I tested it and found that it can't read epubs, but it has a ton of PDF features I haven't learned to use yet but is still smaller and less system resource–sucking than Adobe.
Fabulous torrent file---Has all book covers and metadata---Thank You for the upload
