Order This Book OnlineSit back and enjoy the ride: Jack Foley, my favorite bank robber, is back in Elmore Leonard’s latest caper “Road Dogs”. Leonard is a master of dialogue, immersing us in the characters with his razor sharp wit and fast narrative. The book flows easily as we selfishly celebrate Jack’s early release from prison just so we can see what he’s up to next. This time he’s involved with two other amusing characters: Cundo Rey, his crooked millionaire “road dog” prison buddy, and Dawn Navarro, the beautiful professional psychic. Set in Venice, CA, we follow Jack every step of the way, wondering who to trust, who loves who, but most of all we question whether Jack can change his criminal ways. Can he stop doing what he does best? Do we really want him to?
