"Leonard is tops in his field." --New Orleans Times-Picayune

The great Elmore Leonard, "America's pre-eminent crime fiction writer" (Chicago Tribune), takes readers back to Prohibition days in the back hills of Kentucky in a rollicking story of guns, greed, and illegally brewed corn liquor. The Moonshine War is a tale of the chaos that ensues when a gang of city slickers sets out to steal thousands of dollars-worth of homemade whiskey from a hell-raising country boy--who is anything but the easy mark they were expecting. A rediscovered Elmore Leonard classic, The Moonshine War is a wild ride bursting with the author's hallmark delights: the twisty plot, the gripping suspense, the wit and, of course, the razor-sharp dialogue. It's no wonder that the creator of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens--lately the star of the hit TV series Justified--is always listed among the mystery and crime fiction elite, including John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, and Robert Parker, and often at the very top of the list.
