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.

An earlly Elmore Leonard only very recently made into a movie. A good and gripping story.

If one is a Leonard fan, this book is entertaining, though I've enjoyed some of his other works more.

I am a rabid Elmore fan but this book took me on a curvy ride to nowhere.

Jack Ryan wanted to play pro ball but he couldn't hit; A tough guy who likes walking the razor's edge, he's just met his match and more in Nancy, a rich man's plaything.
