Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The story achieves almost instant escape verlocity.”  Stephen King
“Like Out of Sight? You’ll love this…a typically labryinthine tale featuring three of his best jive-talking ex-cons.”  GQ
“No-one writes crime novels like Hollywood favourite Elmore Leonard, and he has returned with a typical tale of colourful hoodlums on the hunt for another scam...Great dialogue, great characters: 84-year-old Leonard, releasing his 47th novel, never fails to thrill.”  Edinburgh Evening News 
“One of Leonard’s most enjoyable romps to date...deserves to be read and re-read.”  Sunday Express
“A cause for celebration...a hugely entertaining read...it is a testament to Leonard’s skills that he manages to make each of his characters interesting and rounded...it is Leonard’s snappy dialogue that lifts his tale above other run of the mill crime capers.” Sunday Herald
“James slides easily between the book’s eclectic roster of characters, giving each of them clear and distinctive voices…Leonard continues to write the hippest crime fiction in town, and James's reading fits well with the author’s cooler than cool prose.”   Publishers Weekly
