Road Dogs is the 19th novel I've read by Elmore Leonard. That's a record number by one author that I've read. The reason is that Elmore Leonard's stories are just consistently entertaining. You can't tell exactly where the story is headed and the journey there is just so much fun. In this story he revisits the main character of Out of Sight -- haven't read it, but the movie adaptation is a favorite -- Jack Foley, convicted bank robber. The title refers to prison buddies. In this case, Jack's buddy is Cundo Rey, a cocky little Cuban who's sitting on a fortune and helps Jack get an early release from prison. Cundo's girlfriend Dawn, a psychic, has some ideas on how to separate Cundo from his money, but it's not an easy task and Cundo is dangerous. Jack, of course, is one cool customer and not easily fooled. It's a fast-moving, fun tale.
