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.

More About the Author

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.

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.

Drop what you are doing and go read it.

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.

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.

Elmore Leonard thought this was one of his best efforts. I am not so sure. The story seemed a little more contrived than most of this master's work.

Another great Elmore Story. It may be the last one of his for me to read. I have 49 of his books on my Kindle. Love his endings.

Leonard's dialog is wonderful. It makes the most of the rather obscure story, of bomb-plotting people in Damon Runyon territory.
