)'s novel of the same name. The Parker character had been first introduced in Stark's "The Hunter" (1962) novel which had just recently been filmed by John Boorman
as Point Blank
(1967) about six years previous. "The Outfit" was the third Richard Stark novel that featured the Parker character. See more
