This was the first Elmore Leonard book I've read. I'm addicted and am about to read everything he's written.

Elmore Leonard has the smartest and funniest dialogue. This amazingly finishes as a moral late-coming-of-age novel. In the meantime it is Leonard page turner with a Detroit setting, a classic American city he knows well. You feel you have talked with his characters as you get to know them.

"I remember in grade school there'd be a jar in the classroom and a sign that said FOR THE PAGAN BABIES, and we'd put change in it left from our lunch money."
Late Elmore Leonard novel that while using a familiar crime scenario, also engages with larger historical issues, in this case the 1994 Rwandan genocide. His jaded, but moral priest protagonist could've stepped out of a Graham Greene book. "Cuba Libre" and "Cat Chaser" are other novels in a similar vein. Always an entertaining read from one of our great crime writers.
