Book Description

26 Nov 2009
Way back when revolution was the thing, bombs were Robin Abbott and Skip Gibbs's bag - until they were sent to prison. Now they're out and looking to put their skills to profitable use. Their target: Woody Ricks - who Robin thinks ratted them out to the Feds. But Motown cop Chris Mankowski has his eye on Woody, and as a former golden boy of the bomb squad, it's only fitting he'll be around when the nasty stuff starts going down¿ or blowing up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short, punchy, crime fiction 15 July 2012
By Officer Dibble VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Highly enjoyable modern crime fiction from this prolific American author. Chris Mankowski is a cop in a mid-career crisis. He elects to swop the joys of the 'Bomb Squad' for a move into Vice despite a hilariously abortive job interview. The book gets away to a flier with a cracking first chapter.

From his first case, the move proves disastrous and the book recounts his attempts to simultaneously salvage his career whilst catching the baddies. The 'Freaky Deaky' is a wild dance but also relates to the 'freaks' a USA slang term for eccentrics or oddballs often politically motivated.

Another reviewer recommended I give Mr Leonard another try and I'm glad I did. This was a short easy read that sped by. Plenty of humour and often adult content. The plot has a couple of aspects that grate; for example, the minder Donnell missed his vocation as a sniffer dog! But in the end this added to a slightly tongue-in-cheek style. Liked this and I can now see why Mr Leonard has so many fans.

Fantastic book, if you've never read a Elmore Leonard novel - your missing out on such rich dialogue and interesting characters! THis guy isn't described as a legend for nothing.

5.0 out of 5 stars the first Leonard I've read 24 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The style is a little weird and sometimes I was not too sure what some of the characters were up to. The pace is great and the lack of padding. I loved that
