|Book Review||Reading Elmore Leonard is a lot like listening to the Ramones. Sure, they only know 2 songs, but they're both incredible. Elmore Leonard writes what seems like hundreds of books featuring quirky but dim criminals, femme fatales abound, and protagonists who think more than say and are usually willing to let everyone else tell the story. This is one of Leonard's later stories, a Detroit one which features all of those qualities and more. As always, his writing is concise and economic, his dialogue quick, and his characters three dimensional. Elmore Leonard stories inevitably end up with all of the characters in the same room, and the reader wondering who will make it out alive. This story was no exception.|
