Dale Crowe Junior told Kathy Baker, his probation officer, he didn't see where he had done anything wrong.

-- Maximum Bob by Elmore Leonard. 

I haven't read an Elmore Leonard book in years.  I o.d.ed on them a while back so had to take a long break.


  1. I haven't read any of Leonard's books - I'm looking forward to your review.

  2. This one sounds good! I've enjoyed some books by this author.

  3. That sounds like a great start!

  4. I keep hearing such good stuff about Leonard's writing, so ... why haven't I read any of his books? This sounds like a good place to start. Love the opening.

  5. Here I am an avid mystery reader and I've never tried an Elmore Leonard. Must read one to see what all the fuss is about.

  6. Whoops. I wonder what he did wrong.

  7. I like that beginning. Sounds like someone my have been up to something that he shouldn't have!
