Publisher Comments:

“Sharp as an ice pick….You will love this excellent book.”
—New York Times Book Review

Elmore Leonard is the undisputed master, the “King Daddy of crime writers” (Seattle Times), in the august company of the all-time greats of mystery/noir/crime fiction genre: John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, et al. The creator of such unforgettable classics as Stick, Out of Sight, and Get Shorty—not to mention the character of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, lately of TVs hit series Justified—Leonard is in fine form with Mr. Paradise. A riveting Detroit-based thriller enlivened by Leonards trademark razor-sharp dialogue, Mr. Paradise follows a smart Victorias Secret models attempt to score big after surviving a double murder in a millionaires mansion…with a lonely cop acting as spoiler.

Synopsis:

In hindsight, lingerie model Kelly Barr realizes it was a very bad idea to accompany her call girl roommate, Chloe, to Tony Paradisos palatial Detroit home. A wealthy eighty-four-year-old ex-Motor City lawyer, “Mr. Paradise” enjoys watching old Michigan football games on TV while a sexy companion prances around his bedroom topless in a cheerleader outfit. On this particular night, however, two intruders decide to join the party, leaving Chloe and the old man dead while Kellys off elsewhere with Tonys right-hand man. But just maybe Kelly can walk away from it all with a big score. First she needs to convince the cops shes somebody else—and investigating Detective Frank Delsa, while good-hearted and lonely, is not stupid. That good heart, though, could get him into a lot more trouble than he ever bargained for.
