From the Back Cover

Way back when revolution was the thing, bombs were Robin Abbott and Skip Gibbs’s bag—until their explosive “freedom of expression” was curtailed by some considerable prison time. Now the ex-SDSers are back out in the material world and looking to put their pyrotechnic skills to more profitable use. Their target is Woody Ricks, a dope-addled Detroit “rich kid” and aging former fellow radical who Robin thinks ratted them out to the Feds. But Motown cop Chris Mankowski also has his eye on Woody—albeit on another matter entirely—and until his recent switch to Sex Crimes, Chris was the Bomb Squad’s golden boy. So it’s only fitting that he’ll be around when the really nasty stuff starts going down . . . or blowing up.

About the Author

Elmore Leonard wrote more than forty books during his long career, including the bestsellers Raylan, Tishomingo Blues, Be Cool, Get Shorty, and Rum Punch, as well as the acclaimed collection When the Women Come Out to Dance, which was a New York Times Notable Book. Many of his books have been made into movies, including Get Shorty and Out of Sight. The short story "Fire in the Hole," and three books, including Raylan, were the basis for the FX hit show Justified. Leonard received the Lifetime Achievement Award from PEN USA and the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America. He died in 2013.

I'm writing a novella and want to be sure the pace is fast and compelling. Naturally, I turned to rereading Elmore Leonard, whose Freaky Deaky is the avatar of pace and excitement. It reads even better than I remembered.

The characters are a mixture of likable down to earth folks and interesting crazies. The web of crime enmeshes all of them. Leonard leavens the plot with ironic humor — starting with the first gripping chapter.

Elmore. Nuff said. I believe they turned this into a Christian Slater movie recently...if you have seen that do not let ir influence your purchase of this product. Books phenomenal, dialog as good as ever and an ending in the top 10% of his crime based.

Other than killshot. l may have read all his crime novels so not a moot point. He declined later just as he got better and better up to this killshot and get shorty. Didn't read it for years because of its savagery of 60s radicals, not how I remember it because I was there

Elmore Leonard is my favorite fiction writer. His criminal characters often think they're smarter than the good guys. Elmore weaves a beautiful web that leaves me guessing until the last page. I can't get enough Elmore Leonard.

I don't give 5 stars to light reads, but Leonard is tops in that category. I don't like everything he writes, but this is one of the better ones. It's pure entertainment, the characters aren't deep, but they come alive, have a presence and individuality. It's cotton candy, but so what?

Good read......better way to spend a dull Friday night than getting drunk. Its about two ex radicals and bombers who are now scamming a rich drunk in the 80's. The characters all make me sick, and even now I wouldn't waste a good bullet on any of them.

As much as I adore Elmore Leonard, this is not his usual snappy tale. This is the first Leonard book I can't give five or even four stars. I've read most but not all of his books. I can't care enough about the plot or the characters in Freaky Deaky to finish it. So sorry.

Not one of his best. All of his elements are there or lack thereof (few adjectives, no adverbs purposefully). However,
the story line was not at his pace and did not hold one's attention.
