    I just finished reading The Score, the book in which Grofield is introduced and found his character annoying in that book and found it implausible that Parker would work with a guy like that, but Westlake obviously had him mature with age.

    > So it's a Grofield book, where Stark and Westlake met?

    >> Mark, my agent when I first wrote it told me it reminded him of The Ax. Since then I've had several people comment that it reminded them of the Stark's Parker books, and at least 2 people reminded them of Westlake's comic capers. It's a serious, violent book, but it has a good amount of humor mixed in.
