Author Info
Elmore Leonard
Elmore "Dutch" Leonard first became interested in writing at the age of 10 after reading a serialization of "All Quiet on the Western Front", which inspired him to write a play for his fifth-grade class. He dabbled a little more in writing during high school, but after graduating in 1943, he joined the Navy and served in the South Pacific until 1946, when he went back home to attend the University of Detroit. Graduating with a degree in English and philosophy in 1950, Leonard continued working for the advertising agency he joined a year earlier, at the same time seriously turning his attention to writing for the first time. Initially establishing himself as a respected western writer, Leonard published his first story in 1951, "The Trail of the Apache". A string of western stories followed and, in 1953, his first novel, "The Bounty Hunters", hit the stands. He continued his work in advertising while publishing a sizable number of westerns, including the award-winning novel "Hombre". Leonard left the advertising agency in 1961 to work for himself for five years, producing educational and industrial films, as well as sales and marketing products. When Twentieth Century Fox bought the rights to "Hombre" in 1966, he was able to devote his full attention to writing. In 1968, Leonard switched from writing westerns to the genre he is most known for today, a contemporary amalgamation of mystery and crime colored with a sharp, witty, and precise prose style that has established him as both a cult favorite and a critically acclaimed novelist. "Glitz", his first major bestseller, appeared in 1985, beginning a long string of successes. Many of his novels have been made into successful films, including "Get Shorty" and "Rum Punch" (released as "Jackie Brown"). Leonard has lived in his home state of Michigan for most of his life, settling down with his wife, Christine. They have had five children together and are grandparents many times over.
Praise
"Our best crime writers are sometimes our most astute social novelists, concerned as much with our country's ills as they are with sensational homicides, and even in the midst of his rat-a-tat narrative, Leonard doesn't forget this."
From the Publisher
Editors Note After discovering his quarry naked in the bathtub, doped up and missing his kidneys, Federal Marshall Raylan Givens becomes involved, both literally and figuratively, in a case involving the harvesting of organs for sale on the black market where this time the bad guys are girls. 150,000 first printing.
Annotation In Elmore Leonard's third book featuring the cowboy hat-wearing U.S. marshal from Kentucky (after PRONTO and RIDING THE RAP), Raylan Givens takes on organ traffickers, dope dealers, and shady executives. The book follows Raylan on a series of seemingly unrelated cases. First, he discovers a drug dealer in a bathtub, the victim of an organ-smuggler. Then, he gets asked to do security detail for Carol Conlan, who heads up a troublesome mining company. Finally, Raylan tries to track down a college girl who's gone missing and is connected to a string of bank robberies. Fans of Leonard's writing--or the television show spin-off starring Raylan--will certainly get a kick out of these capers, all of which end up pitting the gentlemanly federal agent against some very cunning and dangerous ladies.
