Vincent Mora just can't win. He's been shot, his girlfriend is about to be tossed off a balcony, and there's a vengeful creep looking to even a twisted score. Set against the tacky glitter of Atlantic City's billion-dollar casinos, Glitz has all the classic Leonard touches: quirky characters, colorful and cinematic scenes, and dialogue that's, well, to die for. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Elmore Leonard has written more than three dozen books during his highly successful writing career, including the national bestsellers Mr. Paradise, Pagan Babies, and Get Shorty. Many of his novels have been made into movies, including Get Shorty, Out of Sight, Valdez Is Coming, and Rum Punch (as Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown). He has been named Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America and lives in Bloomfield Village, Michigan, with his wife.
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.Published on April 14 2004 by Robert S.
