Yeah, and if it's as easy to track him down as someone showed it was, it's long past time to find a new place. He shouldn't take business calls at home. I agree with you about the book and the complicated middle bit. Lots of people and lots of really short sections, maybe just one paragraph, jumping from person to person, leading up to the heist. Too many amateurs and outsiders getting involved.

It's a great ending. For a bank robber, Parker seems to have a Buddhist sense of non-attachment and calm. If he needs to leave a building, he'll go out the front door. If there are cops there, he'll go out the back. If there are cops there too, he'll go out a window and knock out whoever he meets. If he has to leave everything behind and crawl through a ditch and hide out for three days with no food, he will. He doesn't worry or panic, he just keeps moving, adapating to the situation, staying out of sight. And stealing and killing when he must.
