About the Book



"Working at his brother-in-law's New Orleans funeral home isn't reformed jewel thief Jack Delaney's idea of excitement--until he's dispatched to a leper's hospital to pick up a corpse that turns out to be very much alive... and under the care of a beautiful, radical ex-nun in designer jeans. The 'deceased' is the one-time squeeze of a Nicaraguan colonel who's ordered her dead for trying to infect him, and Sister Lucy's looking to spirit the young woman away from his guns and goons. Plus Lucy's getting ideas about spiriting away some of the colonel's millions as well--and someone with Jack Delaney's talents could come in very handy indeed."--P. [4] of cover.



Book Synopsis



"Almost unbearable suspense. Leonard has produced another winner."
--People

A wild ride with "the coolest, hottest writer in America" (Chicago Tribune), Bandits has everything Elmore Leonard fans love: non-stop thrills, unexpected twists and turns, unforgettable characters, and the most razor-sharp dialogue being rapidly exchanged anywhere in the crime fiction genre. Leonard stands tall among the all-time greats (John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain) and towers far above most of the writers currently plying the noir fiction trade. The master who created U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, currently of the hit TV series Justified, is at the top of his game, ensnaring readers in an ingenious plot hatched by a former jewel thief and a radical ex-nun to scam millions from a sadistic Nicaraguan colonel. In fact, the Philadelphia Inquirer says Bandits "may well be his best." Read it and decide for yourself.
