Elmore Leonard wrote forty-five novels and nearly as many western and crime short stories across his highly successful career that spanned more than six decades. Some of his bestsellers include Road Dogs, Up in Honey’s Room, The Hot Kid, Mr. Paradise, Tishomingo Blues, and the critically acclaimed collection of short stories Fire in the Hole. Many of his books have been made into movies, including Get Shorty, Out of Sight, and Rum Punch, which became Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown. Justified, the hit series from FX, is based on Leonard’s character Raylan Givens, who appears in Riding the Rap, Pronto, Raylan and the short story “Fire in the Hole”. He was a recipient of the National Book Foundation’s Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, the Lifetime Achievement Award from PEN USA, and the Grand Master Award of the Mystery Writers of America. He was known to many as the ‘Dickens of Detroit’ and was a long-time resident of the Detroit area.
Elmore Leonard .. that says it. I'm only halfway through, but it is another solid Elmore offering.Published 17 days ago by Amazon Customer
The master at work. We lost Elmore over a year ago and this is one of his earlier works from his Western canon, published in 1972. Read morePublished 1 month ago by AP Away
Very good story. Held my interest. Would make a very good movie.Published 3 months ago by Scott Hunter
I found this book tight, tense and sparingly written..Makes a mockery of an old west missionary/warden.
For the Westerns genre this book is my favorite.
Maybe I don't know his old western stuff that well. Pretty good story. Good character development. Dialogue just OK.Published 4 months ago by Andrew P. Grose
