Publisher: Arbor House
Book Club Edition
Elmore Leonard's Bandits is his most daring and accomplished novel to date. His characters have never been more vivid, his dialogue sharper, his humor subtler, his plotting as strong and seductive.
Come down to New Orleans and meet the bandits: Lucy Nichols, ex-nun, daughter of a rich right-wing oil man; Jack Delaney, an ex-con who thinks he's gone straight; and Roy Hicks, an ex-cop whose career was cut short when he got sent to prison. They've stumbled onto a private fund-raising scheme to aid the Contras in Nicaragua. And they've decided that the several million dollars raised should not leave New Orleans. Lucy's willing to become a bandit because, while working with Nicaraguan lepers she saw the horrors of the Contras inflicted on innocent people. Jack is attracted to Lucy, and bored working in his brother-in-law's funeral home. Roy's the uncomplicated one: there's not much he won't do for one-third of the millions of dollars.
Of course, a lot of other people have their eyes on the money too, including Colonel Dagoberto Godoy Diaz, an ex-bigwig Nicaraguan politico; his cold-blooded enforcer, Franklin Dios; the CIA; even the IRA. But Lucy, Jack and Roy have a plan. Together they're going to make out like bandits.
Elmore Leonard has been praised by Newsweek as "the greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever," and by Robert Parker as "the best we have." Bandits is everything tough readers hope for -- Elmore Leonard's best book yet.
