Book details for Cat Chaser
Elmore Leonard also wrote The Big Bounce (1969), 52 Pick-Up (1974), 52 Pick-Up (1974), Touch (1977), Stick (1983), Killshot (1989), Get Shorty (1990), Rum Punch (1992), Out of Sight (1996) and Be Cool (1999).
A dizzying series of plot twists involving various grifters and strongmen (both hired and freelance) leads to the grimly comic suspense action that Elmore Leonard fans have come to know and love. But as always, it's Leonard's impressive ear for dialogue that raises Cat Chaser above the herd of crime novels. An example:
"That's correct," Scully said, "I'm a consultant... I advise people on business matters, act as a go-between, bring people together that want to make deals... things like that. You want to know any more, come by my office, we'll have a coffee sometime. Okay? Right now I'm going to see Mr. Pradi. Where you come in--I'm gonna knock on his door, he don't open it then I might have to kick it in. I mean the business I got with him is that pressing. So you can give me a key and maybe save yourself a door. What do you think?"Well, what do you think? --Ron Hogan
