Richard Stark, The Rare Coin Score (1967)
After misfiring with the first Grofield novel, Richard Stark regroups with garden-variety Parker: In The Rare Coin Score, Parker steals exactly what the book’s title promises, and, of course, he runs into some trouble along the way. Grade: B
A: Excellent. I intend to read it again. B: Good. I might read it again. C: So-so. I didn't mind reading it. D: Bad. I resented reading it. F: Atrocious. I finished it only because I'm compulsive that way.
