Editorial Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
