Melander likes to do things flashy. When Parker finds himself working with Melander on a bank heist in a mid-sized midwestern city, his job is throwing a Molotov cocktail into a gas station. The resulting explosion sends the cops and fire trucks to the east side of town, while Melander and his gang plunder the bank on the west side. But Parker doesn't care for Melander's plan for a new heist, one that will clean out Palm Beach of a lot of very expensive jewelry. What Parker really dislikes is Melander's intention to use the proceeds from the bank job to capitalize the Palm Beach job... including Parker's cut. Melander is very polite about Parker's disinterest, and very sincere about paying him his share... with interest... after the jewelry job goes down.
But that's not the way Parker works. Now he's tailing the gang down South, with a plan for getting his own back... and the entire swag of gems besides.
