Elmore Leonard is eternal. In Road Dogs, the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award winner and “America’s greatest crime master” (Newsweek) brings back three of his favorite characters—Jack Foley from Out of Sight, Cundo Rey from La Brava, and Dawn Navarro from Riding the Rap—for a twisting, explosive, always surprising masterwork of crime fiction the San Francisco Chronicle calls, “a sly, violent, funny and superbly written story of friendship, greed, and betrayal.”

Editorial Reviews

"Leonard is arguably up there with Hammett, Chandler, Ed McBain and James Ellroy as one of the most influential writers of American crime fiction of the 20th century.... Full of great characters.... It is all good fun and the reader is quickly caught up in Leonard's world.... Another gem of mixed morals and great dialogue." (Canberra Times)
