Maybe my least favorite Leonard book, I love his writing because of the coolness of his characters and the witty dialogue. This one just didn't have it. Normally the main characters are flawed but likable, but the girl, Nancy is not. It's a mildly depressing look at a depressing situation.
Like all of Elmore Leonard's books, this one grabs you on the first page and doesn't let go until the last page. His characters and dialogue are first rate. The only complaint about this book is that it's over too soon.
