Elmore Leonard doesn't disappoint. While having the same basic story structure as most of his others, Leonard still creates an interesting, compelling, and very, very funny story.
Read it several times.

It's been a while since I read an Elmore Leonard novel - not sure why because I always enjoy him. Leonard is one of the greats as far as weird storylines and characters - right up there with one of my other favorites - Carl Hiaasen. The plot line for "Tishomingo Blues" includes a high diver, Civil War reenactors, an Indian ex-baseball player, members of the "Dixie Mafia", and an African-American gangster fond of the blues. Leonard pulls this all together into a plot that would be very difficult to describe. However, it works! Some of this was quite hilarious and outrageous. I enjoyed it very much and would highly recommend this one!
