Description
Pretty working-girl Jackie Burke is in a tight spot.  She's just been picked up at Palm Beach International with fifty grand and some blow stashed in her flight bag.  Lucky for her, the Feds want something Jackie's got:  the inside track to Ordell Robbie, the notoriusly slick arms dealer.  And they're ready to deal--Ordell in exchange for her freedom.  But Jackie's got another ace up her sleeve. . .Enter Max Cherry, bail bondsman.  Big, tough, basically decent Max is on the verge of divorce and tired of the same old grind.  That's where Jackie comes in.  The fifty big ones are peanuts compared to what Ordell's got locked away in Freeport.  But when a blowsy blond blowhead and a none-too-bright ex con try to muscle in on the action, it's time to pull and old bait and switch--where the good guys are played off against the bad guys--and where Jackie and Max hope to walk off into the Florida sunset with a hot half million in cold cash.

"Powerful...clever...astonishing...a delicious read."
—Detroit Free Press

Rum Punch is classic Elmore Leonard—the electrifying thriller that served as the basis for the acclaimed film Jackie Brown by director Quentin Tarantino, starring Pam Grier, Robert DeNiro, and Samuel L. Jackson. Leonard's story of a not-altogether-blameless flight attendant on the run from her vicious gun-running sometime employer who sees her as a troublesome loose end, Rum Punch is "the King Daddy of crime writers" (Seattle Times) at his sharpest and most ingeniously entertaining. In fact, People magazine calls it, "Leonard's best work. He brilliantly reaffirms his right to the title of America's finest crime fiction writer." Enjoy this sensational noir winner from the creator of the character of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, lately of TV's hit series Justified, and see why the great Elmore Leonard stands tall in the company of America's most legendary crime fiction masters: John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, et al.
