Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Quiver marks the breakthrough of a new force from the son of grandmaster mystery writer Elmore Leonard — an explosive "nail biter" (Rocky Mountain News) about a family torn apart, an obsessive love affair, and the dark heart of an ex-convict from debut author Peter Leonard.

Kate McCall's husband has been killed by her son, Luke, in a tragic bow-hunting accident. While Kate struggles with her loss and Luke's surly guilt, her first love, Jack, an ex-con, comes back to Detroit, looking for redemption. Even though his past — in the form of his former "colleagues" — trails close behind...

Now, Jack must convince his partners in crime that he really did lose the heist money — and find a way to win Kate's trust. But Jack's return to civil society sets into motion a series of events culminating in dangerous seduction, extortion, and a high-risk confrontation with a gang of killers who don't believe in second chances...and are dead-set at getting even. No matter what the cost.

Review:

"A tight plot with memorable characters and dialogue — come to think of it, not unlike what Leonard's father, Elmore Leonard, creates." Seattle Times

Review:

"Spectacular. You will be holding your breath until the final page." Otto Penzler, New York Sun

Review:

"The best parts of the novel concern the crooks, who, if not as gloriously quirky as those in Elmore Leonard's novels, are sometimes funny and sometimes scary." The Washington Post Book World

Review:

"Leonard has his father's knack for creating memorable characters who are both sinister and amusing. The result is a masterful debut." Calgary Sun

Review:

"This is an outstanding debut....Great tension and sharp-as-a-tack writing!" The Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Review:

"[A]n excellent debut, and one that many will likely finish in one sitting. Leonard is an author to watch..." Library Journal

Review:

"Supercharged, impressive, exciting." George Pelecanos
