I mean, what can I say that hasn't been said by some of the greatest writers of our generation. For starts; Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Lawrence Block and in this short list my favorite author John D. MacDonald, " Leonard can really write . . . He's astonishingly Great." The dialogue of Leonard has yet to be emulated, and for me his story plot and interactive characters are real. Just like we would meet and have in talk back situation. But maybe we wouldn't want to b in the conversation ? Anyway Harry Mitchel is in a mid-life crisis and jumped over the edge with an affair. But his past in a porn movie comes into play with some hoods who think Harry is an easy mark and a payoff for silence. They have their rules for the game but so does Harry, and Harry only plays games by his own rules. Fast paced with a dialogue that crackles.
