I couldn't find the right edition for this Elmore Leonard novel, Cat Chaser, on amazon.com, but you might not care. I got the audiobook from the libarry, and really enjoyed the narration by Frank Muller. He has just the right voice(s) for this hardboiled stuff. I always enjoy Leonard. Yes, lots of his books employ the same formula, but if you like the formula and the kinds of characters he writes about, you're in for a good time, and in good hands with his storytelling skills. In Cat Chaser, our hero is a former Marine who runs a beachfront motel in Florida. He fits the standard Leonard protagonist model: street-smart quiet guy who likes a simple, uncomplicated life, ends up in the middle of events he knows he should walk away from, but his sense of honor prevents him from doing just that. He outsmarts the bad guys, and yes, he gets the girl. The girls are another thing I like about Leonard's writing - they're every bit as clever as the guys, and just as likely to cause trouble, and just as likely to ride to the rescue. Good times all around.
