The hunter becomes prey, as a heist goes sour and Parker finds himself trapped in a shuttered amusement park, besieged by a bevy of local mobsters. There are no exits from Fun Island. Outnumbered and outgunned, Parker can't afford a single miscalculation. He's low on bullets-but, as anyone who's crossed his path knows, that definitely doesn't mean he's defenseless.… (mere)

Different type of Parker story, took a little while but still hooked me ( )

Luc Sante wrote, "Some Parker novels are fantastically intricate clockwork mechanisms ("The Hunter", "The Outfit", the seemingly unstoppable "Slayground", the epic "Butcher's Moon")..."

This book takes place about 5 years after Joe Sheer's death, which happened in the 6th book, "The Jugger" which I just read a few days ago. Parker's working on his eighth job since then, but still trying to catch up and rebuild from the events in that book.

Alan Grofield is in this, another Stark character that I really like! It’s his and Parker’s fifth job together, albeit for just a tiny amount of time. This one goes sour fast, and Parker finds himself trapped with the satchel of loot in an amusement park called Fun Island that has been closed for the offseason! But, they give him too much time, and he is able to “booby-trap the whole damn park against them...”! Then it's a cat-and-mouse game till the end! Don't go into the house of mirrors!

Claire, Parker’s gal, is in this too.

Good, quick read! Shows how smart Parker is, especially when his back's against the wall! I wonder if he'll ever get that money. Or his revenge on Lozini. Did Stark ever write the 'sequel'?
Guess I'll just have to read ALL the Parker novels! Poor me! ;-) ( )

Least favorite of the Parker Series by Richard Stark/Donald Westlake. Well written, but plot had nowhere to go: Parker is trapped inside an amusement park by thugs --- will he escape...well, since there are more books in the series, not very hard to predict the outcome. ( )

The title "Slayground" is a takeoff from the phrase "Amusement Playground." It is the fourteenth Parker novels, following "Deadly Edge" and preceding "Plunder Squad." "Lemons Never Lie" comes between "Slayground" and "Plunder Squad," but that is really one of the four Grofields, not a Parker. "Slayground" is the flip side to the Grofield novel "Blackbird." Parker, Grofield, and another guy pull off an armored car heist and the car flips over in the getaway process. Grofield ends up in the hospital where he is recruited by the CIA in "Blackbird." Parker, however, gets away and hides inside an amusement park, that is shut down for the winter. In front of the park

as Parker makes his entrance, a pair of hoodlums is busy paying off a pair of cops. After hearing a radio report of the armored car heist, a crack team of professional hoods enter the park to hunt down Parker and the $70,000 he is reportedly carrying with him. There is but one entrance and one exit and the hoods can keep calling in reinforcements while Parker has but one gun and a limited number of bullets.

This is quite different than most other Parker novels as it really doesn't center around the planning and execution of a heist. This is more like a horror movie with the serial killer chasing the teens around the funhouse, popping out at the oddest moments and creating general havoc Parker-style. It is a solid, quick read that is about as fun to read as any crime novel ever has been. No, the plot is not all that complicated, but it doesn't need to be with Parker ingeniously improvising as he darts from one amusement park ride to another. How many hoods does it take to take down Parker? Gotta wonder.

Giving this one high marks not on its depth and complexity, but on the absolute amount of fun and enjoyment this was to read. ( )

Most everyone’s consensus favorite as Parker novels go and I can see why. Trapped in a closed-for-the-season amusement park, Parker is hunted by a seemingly endless supply of killers. The environment allows for countless ways to outsmart and outmaneuver his adversaries. Very enjoyable but my favorite of the “classic” Parkers remains The Black Ice Score. ( )
