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)
