Dirty Money, by Richard Stark

Parker and two accomplices have successfully robbed $2 million, but the money takes up a lot of room, so they've hidden most of it in a deserted church. The money is also dirty - the police know what the serial numbers are, and so when one of the gang spends some, he's pretty quickly captured. He escapes, killing a sheriff, and is on the run. Parker has to work out how to retrieve the rest of the cash, while the area is crawling with police.

I think this one is meant to follow Ask The Parrot, although it's a while since I read that one and none of the details here were familiar.

This was reasonably good, but not one of the best I'd say.
