First lines to Alan Grofield books


I added the first lines of the four Alan Grofield novels, by Richard Stark (pseudonym of Donald E. Westlake), to First Lines to Richard Stark’s Parker Books:

  1. The Damsel (1967): “Grofield opened his right eye, and there was a girl climbing in the window.”
  2. The Dame (1969): “Grofield, not knowing what it was all about, got off the plane and walked through the sun into the main terminal building.”
  3. The Blackbird (1969): “Grofield jumped out of the Ford with a gun in one hand and the empty satchel in the other.”
  4. Lemons Never Lie (1971): “Grofield put a nickel in the slot machine, pulled the lever, and watched a lemon, a lemon, and a lemon come up.”
