Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1992

Elmore Leonard has developed a well-deserved reputation for snappy dialogue, explosive plots and black humor. His books never rely on unreasonable plot twists to bring the stories to logical conclusions. Joe Mantegna is nothing short of brilliant. He delineates the various characters with subtle, yet unforgettable, nuances. After the first few minutes, you know exactly which character is speaking at any given moment. The only flaw is in the music--trying for a “Miami Vice” effect, short bits of rock music play in the background for the violent scenes. As this device is not supported by visuals, the music seems contrived and artificial. R.A.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 93]
