Finally got round to this one. I don't have much to add to the above, but I liked it overall; went down fast and easy in just a couple gulps. I appreciate authors who don't make their books longer than they need to be, although I did find the post-Mal stuff a bit abrupt. I did snicker throughout the entire sequence of Parker immediately spotting and dealing with (with surprising lack of violence) the sheer number of mobsters sent along with the payout in the subway. The most uncomfortable part was certainly the laundromat woman's fate, but firmly agree it was an important character-setting moment. No remorse, but aggravated at how "stupid" it was. Parker wasn't angry with himself, but at the universe itself for making a death happen he hadn't intended.
