Enjoyable enough, but this is a lesser Elmore Leonard novel. Interesting in that part of the focus in on Rwandan genocide, but most of the story takes place in Detroit, as usual for Leonard. It has all the rest of the standard elements -- criminals, scammers, lawyers, but no cops this time. A reasonably charming cast of characters, not that they're really the kind of people you'd want to hang around with. Leonard has done better than this (many times) but even a lesser book of his has more virtues than most bestselling thriller stuff.
