Up In Honey's Room

by Elmore Leonard

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | August 6, 2013 | Trade Paperback

Up In Honey's Room is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.

Sweet Honey Deal''s not sure what compelled her to marry Walter Schoen, possibly the most boring man on Earth. So she quickly rectified the situation by leaving the dour German-born butcher to start a new life. A good thing, too, now that America''s at war with Adolf Hitler and Walter''s loyalty to his adopted country was always questionable. Even better, now U.S. Marshal Carl Webster wants to come up to Honey''s room for an official "chat" . . .and for something more intimate, if Honey has anything to say about it.

The feds'' legendary "Hot Kid," Carl''s hunting two German POWs who escaped from an Oklahoma internment camp. Maybe Honey''s estranged hubby knows something. Maybe Honey knows something. Maybe Carl can stay faithful to his wife. Or maybe they''re all about to get tangled up-along with a sultry Ukrainian spy and her transvestite manservant-in a nutty assassination plot that can''t possibly succeed.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another classic What a great eye for historical detail. This novel's set at the close of WW2 in Detroit. He's created the exact atmosphere and tone of the times, along with a very plausible plot. But there's always that Elmore "edge" to the story, that not-quite-real detailing that keeps you wondering. Sit down, put on some Benny Goodman and enjoy the book.

Editorial Reviews

?A best-selling bet. Dead-perfect dialogue, deadpan humor and dead-on vivid characters typical of Leonard.? (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
