Pagan Babies: A Novel

by Elmore Leonard

Harpercollins Publishers | June 17, 2013 | Trade Paperback

Pagan Babies: A Novel is rated 3 out of 5 by 1.

Father Terry Dunn thought he''d seen everything on the mean streets of Detroit, but that was before he went on a little retreat to Rwanda to evade a tax-fraud indictment. Now the whiskey-drinking, Nine Inch Nails-T-shirt-wearing padre is back trying to hustle up a score to help the little orphans of Rwanda. But the fund-raising gets complicated when a former tattletale cohort pops up on Terry''s tail. And then there''s the lovely Debbie Dewey. A freshly sprung ex-con turned stand-up comic, Debbie needs some fast cash too, to settle an old score. Now they''re in together for a bigger payoff than either could finagle alone. After all, it makes sense . . . unless Father Terry is working a con of his own.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from pleasurable This novel is in one way fascinating; I found it hard to understand at first as the characters are darkly funny and colourful. The author peppers his writing with stimulating details which makes the reading pleasurable.
