Author: Elmore Leonard
LaBrava is vintage Leonard: a blend of the true-to-life and the totally make-believe, the cinematic and the suspenseful, the world we know and a whole lot of worlds we're glad we don't.

Perhaps his best., June 20, 1998
Reviewer: A reader
There's something about Elmore Leonard's dialogue that has always struck me as true to life. I don't know why I know this, I've never met any of the people who populate his books. It's just that they talk to each other in the way that I imagine these people do.
Of all Mr. Leonard's books (and I've read almost all of them), La Brava has always been my favorite. Mr. Leonard crawls inside his characters heads and lets us share what goes on in there. It's great fun and a wonderful read.
