Publisher Comments:

“Wonderfully wicked…a nonstop, pedal-to-the-metal romp.”
—Chicago Tribune

Over-the-hill former counter-culture SDS revolutionaries decide to turn bomb-making—and detonating—from a political statement to a profitable enterprise in the master Elmore Leonards electrifying and explosively funny thriller Freaky Deaky. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch calls Leonard, “the worlds greatest cops ‘n robbers novelist.” The Seattle Times says, “Leonard is more than just one of the all-time greats of crime fiction. Hes fast becoming an authentic American icon.” No matter where you wish to place the man who created the character of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, lately of TVs hit series Justified, in the pantheon of mystery and noir detective fiction demigods—John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain and the like—there is no denying that nobody does it better than the Grand Master Elmore Leonard!

Synopsis:

Robin Abbott and Emerson "Skip" Gibbs are former lovers who once burned bras and draft cards together, dropped acid, and protested the war. In the 1980s, both have joined the establishment--sort of. Robin has a plan to use Skip's talent with dynamite to even an old score and make a lot of money at the same time.

Synopsis:

He used to be on the bomb squad, but it's not until he transfers out that Chris Mankowski really begins juggling with dynamite. Rape and revenge are just the tip of the iceberg in a twisty tale that brings Detroit's denizens to life — and occasional death — in all their seedy glory. Electrifying, explosive, and unexpected, this is Elmore Leonard at his suspenseful best.
