Description

"The greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever!"
--New York Times Book Review

When the all-time greats of mystery/noir/crime fiction are mentioned (John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, Robert Parker, etc.), Elmore Leonard's name invariably tops the list. A true Leonard classic, The Big Bounce showcases all of the Grand Master's acclaimed skills--twisty plotting, unforgettable characters, dialogue so razor sharp it could draw blood--as he chronicles the misadventures of a larcenous young man in a Michigan resort town who's irresistibly drawn to a dangerous femme fatale, a rich man's plaything, and the nasty little caper they plan to pull off together--if they can somehow manage to survive each other. The acclaimed creator of Raylan (aka U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, lately of TV's smash hit Justified), Leonard has never lost the mojo that makes him "the King Daddy of crime writers" (Seattle Times).

Back cover copy

Jack Ryan always wanted to play pro ball. But he couldn't hit a curveball, so he turned his attentions to less legal pursuits. A tough guy who likes walking the razor's edge, he's just met his match--and more--in Nancy. She's a rich man's plaything, seriously into thrills and risk, and together she and Jack are pure heat ready to explode. But when simple housebreaking and burglary give way to the deadly pursuit of a really big score, the stakes suddenly skyrocket. Because violence and double-crosses are the name of this game--and it's going to take every ounce of cunning Jack and Nancy possess to survive . . . each other.
