Cundo Rey says Jack Foley is the only white guy in prison he can trust. Foley is the celebrity bank robber from Out of Sight; Cundo, last seen in LaBrava, is a millionaire hustler doing time for first degree. Foley was laid low on a job he should have carried off, and his thirty years aren't going quick. When he escapes he's marched back inside by one Karen Sisco - though not, of course, before they catch up. But then Cundo pays a hot attorney to get Foley's time reduced. Thirty years turn to thirty months and the golden boy drags himself from Karen to see to Cundo's affairs - as any good Road Dog should. Waiting for Cundo in Venice, California, is his 'wife', Dawn Navarro, the seductive psychic from Riding the Rap. Waiting for Foley is Lou Adams, a rogue FBI man and no stranger to a grudge. But with two weeks' grace till Cundo walks free, Foley has other things on his mind - like getting a bit too friendly with his prison buddy's wife. Their pillow talk: screwing the real estate man for all that he's worth. Soon Cundo's back, with some favours of his own to ask the man whose freedom cost him thirty grand. But who can double - or triple - cross the other players first? With a lovable but lethal cast on a collision course for the swag, Elmore Leonard's high-octane thrills show no sign of letting up.

Elmore Leonard brings back several of his best characters in this new caper novel. It helps if you've read his older novels, but if you haven't, it won't keep you from enjoying the story. This is not as compelling a mystery as some of his others, but it's still Leonard, so it's head and shoulders above anybody else in the field.
I just hope he sticks around for a long time, and keeps giving us more good stories.
