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.
"A modern master still cruising at the top of his form." Booklist
"Leonard's criminal farces tend to get derailed when his hero is a lady...and it happens again in [this] sweetly meandering fantasy spun out of the cutest meeting on record." Kirkus Reviews
"Out of Sight is, for my money at least, Leonard's most satisfying book in a long time." Salon
