[Near very good, cocked, Rating: % positive. THE MAN WITH THE GETAWAY FACE is slower and not as polished as THE HUNTER, but it’s a smart and tense novel with an incredible finale.

  As Cooke explains in his introduction to this page story, this is a quick adaptation of "The Man with the Getaway Face," the second Parker novel, and it's done in this form instead of full adaptation because there were two books outside of the first four Parker novels that Cooke wanted to adapt and that meant losing two of the first : Chad Nevett. Parker goes under the knife in The Man with the Getaway Face, changing his face to escape the mob and a contract on his life. Along the way he scores his biggest heist yet: an armored car in New Jersey, stuffed with cash.
