Comfort to the Enemy and Other Carl Webster Storiesby Elmore Leonard
Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
“An excellent read….Concrete evidence of a master crime writer still at the top of his game.”
