The unrivaled master of crime’s first collection of noir stories….
“If you thought you knew all the places Elmore Leonard could take you, think again.” (Mike Lupica)
In more than 30 books spanning half a century, Elmore Leonard has captured the imagination of millions as few writers can. A literary icon praised by the New York Times Book Review as “the greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever,” he has influenced many contemporary writers and is known for both the quality and accessibility of his writing.
In this first collection of short pieces, including two novella-length works, since his western anthology Tonto Woman, Leonard demonstrates the superb characterization, dead-on dialogue, vivid atmosphere, and driving plotting that have made him a household name.
