"Road Dogs is terrific, and Elmore Leonard is in a class of one." --Dennis Lehane, author of Shutter Island and Mystic River

"You know from the first sentence that you're in the hands of the original Daddy Cool....This one'll kill you." --Stephen King

Elmore Leonard is eternal. In Road Dogs, the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award winner and "America's greatest crime master" (Newsweek ) brings back three of his favorite characters--Jack Foley from Out of Sight, Cundo Rey from La Brava, and Dawn Navarro from Riding the Rap-- for a twisting, explosive, always surprising masterwork of crime fiction the San Francisco Chronicle calls, "a sly, violent, funny and superbly written story of friendship, greed, and betrayal."

display_description Gentleman/banker-robber Jack Foley is back in prison doing a thirty-year sentence after a week-long escape. Brought in by Karen Sisco, US marshall, who got her man after being abducted with the escapees, Jack and Karen have a thing for each other, and Karen arrests him only after a meaningful 'time'out' together. Jack is resigning himself to doing time, lots of it, and he seems to have a friendly and easy control over the hardened criminals he is imprisoned with. This easiness is enhanced in the minds of others by his fame as a bank robber. It is this ease which impresses Cuando Rey, a Cuban refugee and criminal who is doing time for murder. Cuando arranges to have Foley's sentence hugely reduced, but has favors aplenty to ask when they're both released.Cuando's wife, Dawn, is pretending to be saintly all the while (whilst quite the opposite) under the negligent eye of The Monk, a gay accountant similarly in thrall to Cuando. Foley is freed, and, as he fears, Cuando wants to use him on a job, just as his every move is being scrutinised by FBI detective Lou Adams. In an instant, though, Dawn has seduced him, and she has an agenda all of her own.
