Road Dogs

Elmore Leonard: Road Dogs (UK 2010)

From the Publisher:
Every prison inmate needs a Road Dog - someone to watch their back, someone they can trust on the inside and out. For wealthy Cuban criminal Cundo Rey, that person is Jack Foley: charmer, ladies' man and infamous bank robber. With the services of a shark attorney and a whole heap of cash, Cundo engineers his buddy's early release, and Jack is soon living large in Cundo's house in Venice Beach, enjoying the attentions of his sexy wife, Dawn. But Dawn has ulterior motives and a plan: to relieve her husband of his considerable fortune...and she needs Jack's help. But with Cundo's release imminent and rogue FBI agent Lou Adams on his tail, just who can Jack trust if he's to pull off the biggest score of his life...?

Road Dogs

Elmore Leonard: Road Dogs (USA 2010)

From the Publisher:
Jack Foley and Cundo Rey are road dogs: trusted jailhouse comrades watching each other's back. They're so tight, Cundo's using his own money and his shark lady lawyer to get Foley's sentence reduced from thirty years to three months. And when Jack gets out, the wealthy Cuban criminal wants him to stay in Cundo's multimillion dollar Venice Beach house -- right across from the one where Cundo's common-law wife, professional psychic Dawn Navarro, resides. There will certainly be some payback expected, though Jack can't figure out what. Sexy Dawn's intentions are a lot clearer. But Cundo's coming home earlier than anticipated, and Jack smells a double-cross cooking -- the kind that could turn a road dog into road kill.

Road Dogs

Elmore Leonard: Road Dogs (UK 2009)

From the Publisher:
The legendary New York Times bestselling author returns with three of his favourite characters, each one out to win, in a fast-moving plot that's one of his best

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.

Road Dogs

Elmore Leonard: Road Dogs (USA 2009)

From the Publisher:
Legendary New York Times bestselling author Elmore Leonard returns with three of his favorite characters: Jack Foley from Out of Sight, Cundo Rey from LaBrava, and Dawn Navarro from Riding the Rap.

Jack Foley, the charming bank robber from Out of Sight, is serving a thirty-year sentence in a Miami penitentiary, but he's made an unlikely friend on the inside who just might be able to do something about that. Fellow inmate Cundo Rey, an extremely wealthy Cuban criminal, arranges for Foley's sentence to be reduced from thirty years to three months, and when Jack is released just two weeks ahead of Cundo, he agrees to wait for him in Venice Beach, California.

Also waiting for Cundo is his common-law wife, Dawn Navarro, a professional psychic with a slightly ulterior motive for staying with Cundo: namely, she wants his money. And with the arrival of Jack, she sees the perfect partner in a plan to relieve Cundo of his fortune. Cundo may be Jack's friend, but does that mean he can trust him? And can either of them trust Dawn?

Road Dogs is Elmore Leonard at his best -- with his trademark tight plotting and pitch-perfect dialogue -- and readers will love seeing Cundo, Jack, and Dawn back in action and working together... or are they?

Elmore Leonard: Road Dogs. A Novel. William Morrow, ISBN: 9780061733147 (May, 2009), 262 p., $26.99.
