Summary (From the publisher):

Parker and his associates plot to reclaim the loot, which they hid in the choir loft of an unused country church. As they implement the plan, people on both sides of the law use the forces at their command to stop Parker and grab the goods for themselves. Though Parker's new getaway van is an old Ford Econoline with "Holy Redeemer Choir" on its doors, his gang is anything but holy, and Parker will do whatever it takes to redeem his prize, no matter who gets hurt in the process.

Blurbs:
  • "The hard-edged Parker is as resolute and dangerous as ever, and the faithful will stand beside him through every step of this typically involved and entertaining novel." Booklist
  • "One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century...Richard Stark, real name Donald Westlake...His Parker books form a genre all their own." John Banville
  • "The nice thing about the rather nasty stories Richard Stark writes about a career criminal named Parker is that none of the significant characters is ever innocent. Which is why it's so easy to laugh when their intricate schemes begin to unravel." The New York Times Book Review
  • "Stark, Donald E. Westlake's more bad-tempered alter ego, breaks his usual rule and gives women...major roles. Not that Parker takes a back seat for a minute. The man is fiercely conceived, one mean piece of work." Kirkus Reviews
  • "Dirty Money and the Stark thrillers are an exploration of caverns dark and gritty. But even with the ground shifting under your feet and a sense of foreboding in the air, the experience is compelling and oddly exhilarating." Los Angeles Times
