Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Almost unbearable suspense. Leonard has produced another winner.”
—People

A wild ride with “the coolest, hottest writer in America” (Chicago Tribune), Bandits has everything Elmore Leonard fans love: non-stop thrills, unexpected twists and turns, unforgettable characters, and the most razor-sharp dialogue being rapidly exchanged anywhere in the crime fiction genre. Leonard stands tall among the all-time greats (John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain) and towers far above most of the writers currently plying the noir fiction trade. The master who created U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, currently of the hit TV series Justified, is at the top of his game, ensnaring readers in an ingenious plot hatched by a former jewel thief and a radical ex-nun to scam millions from a sadistic Nicaraguan colonel. In fact, the Philadelphia Inquirer says Bandits “may well be his best.” Read it and decide for yourself.

Synopsis:

Working at his brother-in-laws New Orleans funeral home isnt reformed jewel thief Jack Delaneys idea of excitement—until hes dispatched to a lepers hospital to pick up a corpse that turns out to be very much alive . . . and under the care of a beautiful, radical ex-nun in designer jeans. The “deceased” is the one-time squeeze of a Nicaraguan colonel whos ordered her dead for trying to infect him, and Sister Lucys looking to spirit the young woman away from his guns and goons. Plus Lucys getting ideas about spiriting away some of the colonels millions as well—and someone with Jack Delaneys talents could come in very handy indeed.
