'Elmore Leonard is the crime-writer's crime-writer, king of all he surveys. For sharp plots and spot-on dialogue, he's in a different league' Ian Rankin 'He's the boss, the grandmaster, the chief, the big cheese, and anyone with even the faintest interest in crime fiction cannot afford to ignore him' New Musical Express Elmore Leonard is a fantastic addition to our list of quality crime writing. Phoenix now has the rights to 11 backlist titles and we will be bringing the books out over the course of 2004-6 with a great series cover look. We also have a new hardback coming out in W&N in autumn 2005 Many of Elmore Leonard's novels have been filmed, most notably Get Shorty and Rum Punch (called Jackie Brown and filmed by Quentin Tarantino) 'Not just a good storyteller, but also an important novelist...a model of action-writing at its best' Philip Kerr
