"Professional thief Parker (no first name) has been starring in books since 1961, and his toughness, brutality, and deadliness are legendary. He's also been portrayed in several movies, though the recent release of Parker, starring Jason Statham, was the first time the main character in the film used the same name as the books. The eponymous 2013 flick was based on the events of the novel Flashfire, in which Parker has been stiffed by his companions in a robbery. Naturally, he decides to get back at them by figuring out their next target and robbing it first. But first he's got to deal with the assassins he's got on his tail."
