4.0 out of 5 stars Spot the Psycho, 14 Jun 2006

Big A (Bodrum, Turkey) - See all my reviews

This review is from: City Primeval (Paperback)
Halfway through I thought, 'Weird, where is this going?' Stupid question. It was going where all good Leonards go - toward the resolution of events in accordance with the characters, rather than the other way around as most modern thrillers seem to have it.

It is why I like Leonard. He knows his people. A recent radio interview he gave underlined the point. He reckons he spends myabe a couple of days on plot once he's got the people.

Well there's a little moral ambiguity on the part of the good guy but the villain a pure unredeemable evil.

... Raymond Cruz is a cop and doesn't intend to see Clement walk from Court on a technicality again. He doesn't want to see Clement walk period. Elmore Leonard always delivers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Murder and Mayhem in Motown, 24 Oct 2010

(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: City Primeval (Paperback)
No one writes hard-boiled crime fiction better than Elmore Leonard.

City Primeval has every cliché of the genre; crazed killers, tough detectives and sassy broads. However, Leonard's masterful way with characters means that they do not appear like clichés but just like real people, who are caught up in extraordinary situations.

The plot zips along and the dialogue sizzles with wit.

In this genre it really doesn't get any better than this.
