I'm trying to clean up my list of "books/authors I haven't read, that cause people to stare at me in fascinated horror when they find I haven't read them!" Elmore Leonard is one. Of course I've seen the movie Get Shorty & after perusing a few lists, figured this would be the book to start with. Lots of fun - Hollywood & Miami setting, which made me feel warm, that was a plus! Wonderful dialogue, well-drawn characters, tight plot. I'm not a huge fan of crime fiction but I'm glad I read this! Chili Palmer is a great mobster, right up there with Tony Soprano!
