Character Guide: Flashfire

The Parker universe is a dense and well-populated place. Many characters recur and often their actions in one novel can be important plot points in another. To help you navigate the rich and varied world of Richard Stark, the University of Chicago Press Staff has put together this easy-to-use character guide. Characters are searchable by alignment (The Outfit, other criminals, dames, civilians, and law men) and by book. When you click on a character a short summary will be available. Any salacious details are hidden in the spoiler section for each character, which you can access by clicking on the bomb icon in an entry. If you have questions, comments, or corrections, please contact us.
