Comfort to the Enemy and Other Carl Webster Stories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Hot Kid of the U.S. Marshals Service, Carl Webster maintains the law with a cool, showdown attitude. He's one of the richest creations in Elmore Leonard's half century of delivering the goods. From his appearances in the critically acclaimed novels The Hot Kid and Up in Honey's Room, Carl returns to lay down the law in a novella that originally appeared as a serial in the New York Times Sunday Magazine.

The title novella — plus two Carl Webster short stories — traces Carl's career from his run-in with 1930s gangsters to his investigation of a murder at a German POW camp in Oklahoma. This time it's Carl against war-seasoned Afrika Korps Nazis. With its pitch-perfect dialogue, compelling characters, and classic charm, Comfort to the Enemy is vintage Leonard.

Synopsis:

Carl Webster, the gunslinging U.S. Marshal from The Hot Kid and Up in Honey's Room, serves as the centerpiece of two stories and one novella, in this never-before-published-in-the-U.S. collection from the inimitable Elmore Leonard.

Synopsis:

“An excellent read….Concrete evidence of a master crime writer still at the top of his game.”
—Russel D. McLean, author of The Good Son

“The reigning King Daddy of crime writers” (Seattle Times), Elmore Leonard first introduced quick-triggered legendary lawman Carl Webster  in the New York Times bestseller, The Hot Kid, and brought him back for an encore Up in Honeys Room. In Comfort to the Enemy and Other Carl Webster Stories, the loose cannon U.S. marshal struts his stuff once more in three electrifying new tales. Comfort to the Enemy is more indisputable proof that Elmore Leonard is indeed, as Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Shutter Island) puts it, “The greatest crime writer who ever lived.”
