Maximum Bob by Elmore Leonard (1991)

I guess I really shouldn’t pay attention to hype. Leonard has a reputation in the States as the preeminent crime fiction writer of his time. This is my first encounter with him and I must say I’m a little disappointed. This is above average crime fiction and that’s it. Personally, I want more out of a book than just a well told story (I have to say well told because I can’t call it good) and nothing else.

It’s certainly a page turner – especially near the end – but that’s it.
