The Big Bounce (Paperback)
"The greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever "
--New York Times Book Review
When the all-time greats of mystery/noir/crime fiction are mentioned (John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, Robert Parker, etc.), Elmore Leonard's name invariably tops the list. A true Leonard classic, The Big Bounce showcases all of the Grand Master's acclaimed skills--twisty plotting, unforgettable characters, dialogue so razor sharp it could draw blood--as he chronicles the misadventures of a larcenous young man in a Michigan resort town who's irresistibly drawn to a dangerous femme fatale, a rich man's plaything, and the nasty little caper they plan to pull off together--if they can somehow manage to survive each other. The acclaimed creator of Raylan (aka U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, lately of TV's smash hit Justified), Leonard has never lost the mojo that makes him "the King Daddy of crime writers" (Seattle Times).
