Banditsby Elmore Leonard
Synopses & Reviews
Bandits assembles an unlikely crew: an ex-nun, an ex-cop, and an ex-con. They've got their eyes on several million dollars that they've decided should not be spent to aid the Contrast in Nicaraugua. Of course , a lot of other people have their eyes on the money, too.
"Crackles like a brown paper bag pulled up around a half pint." Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Bandits assembles an unlikely crew: an ex-cop, an ex-con, and an ex-nun. They've got their eyes on several million bucks intended for the Contras; with their unique set of skills and their crazily clever plan, they're sure to make out like bandits — if they live so long.
“Almost unbearable suspense. Leonard has produced another winner.”
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.
