Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"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

Review:

"If it's Elmore Leonard, there's bound to be an edge....A modern master still cruising at the top of his form." Booklist

Review:

"The greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever!" The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"An absolute master." The Detroit News

Review:

"[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

Review:

"Out of Sight is out of sight." The Orlando Sentinel

Review:

"[Leonard] has a page-to-page delivery that any fiction writer should study." Ralph Lombreglia, The New York Times

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author

Elmore Leonard has written more than three dozen books including Cuba Libre, Rum Punch, and Get Shorty, and numerous screenplays. He has an unparalleled reputation among lovers of mayhem, suspense, and just plain wonderful writing. A Grand Master Award winner of the Mystery Writers of America, he has been likened to everyone from Balzac to Dostoevsky to Dickens to Dashiell Hammett — but he is, in fact, entirely and entertainingly sui generis. He lives in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
