Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was dazzled by Leonard's writing here, but as the story progressed I didn't feel any simpathy for the sleazy characters or feel very intrested in the plot.

Elmore Leonard is definitely my favorite author. The way he cruises through the text and keeps you hooked along every word is a talent only he posesses. GLITZ is one of Mr. Leonard's greatest crime novels, an intriguing work that hooks you from the first sentence and holds on to you until the finale.
Seven years ago, Teddy Magyk (a.k.a. "Mr. Magic") was imprisoned after Vincent Mora brought him down for raping a senior citizen. Now Teddy's out, and he wants revenge. But there are some things he didn't count on. One, Vincent Mora isn't going to go down without a fight; and two, Vincent still has the mean look in his eyes...
Here, Mr. Leonard has written a movie-like crime thriller that will definitely not leave his many fans disappointed. I highly recommend you go out and buy "Glitz".

My first leonard novel was Rum Punch,I have been hooked ever since.I have bought 15 of his books,Glitz is my overwhelming favorite.I often wonder why this novel has not been made into a movie.The way he goes from one scene to the next reminds me of the movie experience.Teddy is the most interesting character I can think of.If you could not find this book absolutely compelling,you may be comatose,or maybe you're just a jerk.

When I bought this book, I believed I was going to read the cream of the crop of crime novels. It isn't. The main character lacks charisma big time. The villains lack charisma big time. Hell, not even the girl has much. The only really cool character is the ex-football player. And he's a secondary one.
Why do I even give two stars? Because, I must admit, I'm very afraid to give this guy less than that. He certainly did his homework and knows a lot of the cop slang and settings he describes. But that's a very common flaw, to put a lot of accurate information on a BORING plot.
For great crime fiction, do check on James Elroy.

Format: Paperback
'Glitz' is the work of a novelist who knows exactly what he's doing. The plotting is strong without ever seeming contrived; the characters, with the possible exception of Vincent Mora, who's a little too good to be believable, are all arrestingly real; and the backdrops -- Puerto Rico, Atlantic City, Miami -- are vivdly painted in. The plot here is a little knottier than in some of Leonard's later books, but is none the worse for that; his comedy, too, is more subtle. All crime fiction is really a guilty pleasure, but that doesn't mean there's not room within the genre for originality and craftsmanship. Leonard isn't Tolstoy, and doesn't have any illusions about his stature, but on his own turf he is a master, and worth ten novelists who've buried their heads in Derrida and Lacan. Like his protagonist, Leonard knows all the angles. You'll finish this novel with a broad smile on your face, and a desire to read all of Leonard's work.
