Larry Foley, bank robber, breaks out of the joint. Gets some henchmen to abet him. Falls for the federal marshall, who just happens to be at the right place at the right time. The author is at his best. So is narrator George Guidall. His voice shines like a beacon, illuminating the book's dark souls and deeds. Guidall demands that we notice the irony, wit and coolness of the text. His elastic voice creates characters with their own memorable peculiarities, and his deliberate pacing works beautifully with Leonard's economical writing style. Every joke is clear, every twist is surprising, every herring is red. R.I.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 97]
