Two story lines collide in All He Saw Was The Girl.

McCabe and Chip are two American college students studying abroad in Italy. A freak incident, a case of mistaken identity, and a beautiful Italian girl, lead to more than one exciting chase.

Sharon is a bored wife of a secret service agent. He is always traveling leaving her home alone. Her choice to have an affair with Joey Palermo to add a little excitement to her life may cost her dearly.

When Elmore Leonard is your father good writing is in the genes. This is well proven by Peter's success. I reviewed his Voices of the Dead earlier this year and I do enjoy his writing style. He slowly builds the path and reveals the clues to take us on a ride of thrills and suspense.

I have never been to Italy but Leonard's detailed descriptions made me feel like I was right there sitting at sidewalk table outside Rosati drinking a Moretti looking out at the Porta del Popolo watching the cars and motorbikes go speeding by.

It is sometimes difficult to weave two stories together but the author has done this very well. We do lose one character for awhile which bothered me a bit.

The story is fast paced so this is a really quick read. The pages keep turning and turning. Little cliffhangers at the end of the chapters make it very hard to put down.
