Description

"A Hollywood hit....Taut, inimitable prose and characters who could have only sprung from the mind of Elmore Leonard." --Detroit News

The Chicago Tribune has dubbed Elmore Leonard, "the coolest, hottest writer in America." In the same league as the legendary great ones--John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain--the "King Daddy of crime writers" (Seattle Times) demonstrates his remarkable mastery with Get Shorty, one of the most adored of his forty-plus novels. The basis of the hit movie starring John Travolta and Danny DeVito, Get Shorty chronicles the over-the-top, sometimes violent Hollywood misadventures of a Florida mob loan shark who chases a deadbeat client all the way to Tinseltown and decides to stick around and make movies. Get Shorty's shylock protagonist, Chili Palmer, is a truly inspired creation--as memorable as another unforgettable Leonard hero, U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens of the hit TV series Justified--and readers will relish his moves and countermoves in this electrifying, funny, bullet train-paced winner from "the greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever!" (New York Times Book Review)
