Out of Sightby Elmore Leonard
Synopses & Reviews
Jack Foley was busting out of Florida's Glades Prison when he ran head-on into Karen Sisco with a shotgun. Suddenly the world-class gentleman felon was sharing a cramped car trunk with a disarmed federal marshal — whose Chanel suit cost more than the take from Foley's last bank job — and the chemistry was working overtime. Here's a lady Jack could fall for in a big way, if she weren't a dedicated representative of the law that he breaks for a living. And as soon as she escapes, he's already missing her. But there are some seriously bad men and a major score waiting for Jack in Motown. And there's a good chance that when his path crosses Karen's again, she's going to be there for business, not pleasure.
"Out of Sight is...Leonard's most satisfying book in a long time. Of all the damn things, it's a romantic comedy. Leonard follows the genre rules as well as any writer of shaggy-dog noirs could..." Charles Taylor, Salon.com
"If it's Elmore Leonard, there's bound to be an edge....A modern master still cruising at the top of his form." Booklist
"The greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever!" The New York Times Book Review
"An absolute master." The Detroit News
"[A] sweetly meandering fantasy spun out of the cutest meeting on record....A master coasting is still a master, but nobody will take this for top-drawer Leonard." Kirkus Reviews
"Out of Sight is out of sight." The Orlando Sentinel
"[Leonard] has a page-to-page delivery that any fiction writer should study." Ralph Lombreglia, The New York Times
Before there was Raylan, there was Sisco... U.S. Marshal Karen Sisco is on the hunt for world-class gentleman felon Jack Foley in Out of Sight, New York Times bestselling author Elmore Leonards sexy thriller that moves from Miami to the Motor City.
Based on Miami, Florida's Gold Coast, U.S. Marshal Karen Sisco isnt about to let a expert criminal like Jack Foley successfully bust out of Florida's Glades Prison. But theres a major score waiting for him in Detroit, and a shotgun-wielding marshal isnt going to stop Foley from getting it.
Neither counted on sharing a cramped car trunk—or on a sizzling chemistry thats working overtime. As soon as Sisco escapes, Foley is already missing her.
Sisco cant forget Foley either—and she isnt about to let him go. Too bad the next time their paths cross, its going to be about business, not pleasure.
