JULIE MEYERS begins high school with everything going her way. Her best friend Mary Jo is in most of her classes. Drama Workshop is wonderful, and she's even gotten a part in the big spring musical. Best of all, basketball player Steve Marks obviously sees her as a very special person. Julie wouldn't change places with anyone in the world. And then. . . . Sometimes a word is spoken out loud that has such bad vibrations that everyone in the room reacts to it--like when someone mentions cancer, or tumor, or leukemia. You kind of shudder and say, "Well, it's not me," and cross your heart or your fingers or anything else flexible . ... But it was Julie. The aching immediacy of Barbara Girion's novel puts every reader in the place of Julie Meyers as she struggles against the cruelty of her "friends" and her own bitterness, searching desperately for her "handful of stars"--and finding them in unexpected places.

Parker, the ruthless antihero of Richard Stark's eponymous mystery novels, is one of the most unforgettable characters in hard boiled noir. Lauded by critics for his taut realism, unapologetic amorality, and razor-sharp prose style--and adored by fans who turn each intoxicating page with increasing urgency--Stark is a master of crime writing, his books as influential as any in the genre. The University of Chicago Press has embarked on a project to return the early volumes of this series to print for a new generation of readers to discover--and become addicted to. This season's offerings include volumes 7-9 in the series: The Seventh, The Handle, and The Rare Coin Score. In The Seventh, the heist of a college football game goes bad, and the take is stolen by a crazed, violent amateur. Parker must outrun the cops--and the killer--to retrieve his cash In The Handle, Parker is enlisted by the mob to knock off an island casino guarded by speedboats and heavies, forty miles from the Texas coast The Rare Coin Score features the first appearance of Claire, who will steal Parker's heister's heart--while together they steal two million dollars of rare coins. "Parker ... lumbers through the pages of Richard Stark's noir novels scattering dead bodies like peanut shells. ... In a complex world [he] makes things simple."--William Grimes, New York Times. "Whatever Stark writes, I read. He's a stylist, a pro, and I thoroughly enjoy his attitude."--Elmore Leonard. "Westlake knows precisely how to grab a reader, draw him or her into the story, and then slowly tighten his grip until escape is impossible." --Washington Post Book World. "Donald Westlake's Parker novels are among the small number of books I read over and over. Forget all that crap you've been telling yourself about War and Peace and Proust--these are the books you'll want on that desert island."--Lawrence Block. Also available from the University of Chicago Press: The Hunter, The Man with the Getaway Face, The Outfit, The Mourner, The Jugger, The Score.
