Fire in the Hole

Elmore Leonard: Fire in the Hole (USA 2012)

From the Publisher:
Originally published as When the Women Came Out to Dance, Elmore Leonard's extraordinary story collection, Fire in the Hole reconfirms his standing as the "King Daddy of crime writers" (Seattle Times) -- a true Grand Master in the legendary company of John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, and James M. Cain. These nine riveting tales of crime and (sometimes) punishment -- including the title story starring U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, which was the basis for the smash hit TV series Justified -- feature all the elements that have made the great Elmore Leonard great: superb writing, unforgettable characters, breathtaking twists, and the sharpest, coolest dialogue in the mystery-thriller genre.

Elmore Leonard: Fire in the Hole. And other Stories. William Morrow Paperbacks, ISBN: 9780062120342 (January, 2012), 256 p., $14.99.

When the Women Come Out to Dance

Elmore Leonard: When the Women Come Out to Dance (UK 2004)

From the Publisher:
In this collection of shorter works - one novella and a number of short stories - Leonard is at his characteristic best: dead-on dialogue, vivid atmosphere and driving plots involving retired baseball players, US marshals, bank robbers, Mexican housemaids and neo-Nazis.

Raylan Givens is a US martial, but he used to work in the mines, digging coal for a living. He had a friend there who's also changed his business: he now heads up a neo-Nazi group that is threatening to get out of control. When they come head to head, Raylan has to decide how far he'll go in pursuit of justice... Elmore Leonard's brilliant novella When the Women Come Out to Dance heads up a fiery collection of the master's shorter fiction, all published in book form for the first time.

Elmore Leonard: When the Women Come Out to Dance. Stories. Penguin, ISBN: 0141009853 (March, 2004), 228 p., £7.99.

When the Women Come Out to Dance

Elmore Leonard: When the Women Come Out to Dance (USA 2004)

From the Publisher:
Elmore Leonard, a literary icon praised by The New York Times Book Review as "the greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever," has captured the imagination of millions of readers with his more than three dozen books.

In this short fiction collection, Leonard demonstrates the superb characterizations, dead-on dialogue, vivid atmosphere, and driving plots that have made him a household name -- and once again illustrates that the line between the law and the lawbreakers is not as firm as we might think.

Federal marshal Karen Sisco, from the bestselling novel Out of Sight, returns in "Karen Makes Out," once again inadvertently mixing pleasure with business. In "Fire in the Hole," Raylan Givens, last seen in Riding the Rap and Pronto, meets up with an old friend, but they're now on different sides of the law. In the title story, "When the Women Come Out to Dance," Mrs. Mahmood gets more than she bargains for when she conspires with her maid to end her unhappy marriage.

All nine stories are Elmore Leonard at his vivid, hilarious, and unfailingly human best.

Elmore Leonard: When the Women Come Out to Dance. Stories. Dark Alley, ISBN: 0060586168 (January, 2004), 240 p., $13.95.

When the Women Come Out to Dance

Elmore Leonard: When the Women Come Out to Dance (USA 2002)

From the Publisher:
In his more than three dozen books, Elmore Leonard has captured the imagination of millions of readers as few writers can. A literary icon praised by The New York Times Book Review as "the greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever," he has influenced many contemporary writers and is known for both the quality and the accessibility of his writing.

In this collection of new and recently published short fiction, Leonard demonstrates the superb characterizations, dead-on dialogue, vivid atmosphere, and driving plotting that have made him a household name. And once more this master of crime illustrates that the line between the law and the lawbreakers is not as firm as we might think.

Federal marshal Karen Sisco, from the bestselling novel Out of Sight, returns in "Karen Makes Out," once again inadvertently mixing pleasure with business. In "Fire in the Hole," Raylan Givens, last seen in Riding the Rap and Pronto, meets up with an old friend, but they're now on different sides of the law. In the title story, "When the Women Come Out to Dance," Mrs. Mahmood gets more than she bargains for when she conspires with her maid to end her unhappy marriage. In all nine stories -- each unique in their own right -- reluctant heroes and laid-back lowlifes struggle for power, survival, and their fifteen minutes of fame.

Vivid, hilarious, and unfailingly human, these stories ring true with Elmore Leonard's signature deadpan social observations and diabolical eye for the foibles of the good guys and the bad.

Elmore Leonard: When the Women Come Out to Dance. Stories. William Morrow, ISBN: 0060083972 (November, 2002), 228 p., $24.95 .
