I wanted something 'different', and Elmore Leonard delivers. Fast paced, with characters that are etched like an impressionist painting. A lot of shooting, bad guys that are almost likeable, and good guys who are loners. I think my rating would be higher if I wasn't on a romance novel kick. I only read 2 of the three novels, and that was enough to cleanse my palate.
An omnibus of three really good early novels, and a great introduction to Elmore Leonard for the uninitiated.
Sparse prose. Bleak Story. Strong character development. Typical Leonard hipness.
