Elmore Leonard has the smartest and funniest dialogue. This amazingly finishes as a moral late-coming-of-age novel. In the meantime it is Leonard page turner with a Detroit setting, a classic American city he knows well. You feel you have talked with his characters as you get to know them.

"I remember in grade school there'd be a jar in the classroom and a sign that said FOR THE PAGAN BABIES, and we'd put change in it left from our lunch money."
Late Elmore Leonard novel that while using a familiar crime scenario, also engages with larger historical issues, in this case the 1994 Rwandan genocide. His jaded, but moral priest protagonist could've stepped out of a Graham Greene book. "Cuba Libre" and "Cat Chaser" are other novels in a similar vein. Always an entertaining read from one of our great crime writers.
