In this new book, Leonard brings together three of his more memorable characters from three of his past novels. Reading this book is like watching crossover sitcoms on CBS. Jack Foley, the bank robber with over 127 successful bank robberies on his resume meets up with a Tony Montana wannabe in prison. This short, 50-something Cuban gangster with the greased black ponytail takes a liking to Jack and they become road dogsfor three years while behind bars. Each one has the other's back covered. Jack is serving 30 years and Cundo Rey using his money and influence, springs Jack. Rey soon follows, having served nearly 8 years. Waiting on the outside is the supposed psychic, Dawn Navarro, who has been waiting those 8 years for Rey to get sprung so she can bilk him outta his fortune. All three are on a collision course that only Leonard could create. Leonard, like David Mamet has a gifted ear. He is a master of capturing dialog spoken in real-life words, not just words written as prose; which is the failures of so many less talented published authors today. For a man who lives in a quiet town in Michigan, Leonard sure has a handle on the underworld and what makes criminals tick. A must read for all his fans.
