9780060082208 â€œMy favorite Leonard book....He writes the way Hammett and Chandler might write today, if they sharpened their senses of ironic humor and grew better ears for dialogue.â€ â€”Dallas Morning News â€œThe best writer of crime fiction alive.â€ â€”Newsweek Dangerously eccentric characters, razor-sharp black humor, brilliant dialog, and suspense all rolled into one tight packageâ€”thatâ€™s The Switch, Elmore Leonardâ€™s classic tale of a kidnapping gone wrong...or terribly right, depending on how you look at it. The Grand Master whom the New York Times Book Review calls, â€œthe greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever,â€ has written a wry and twisting tale that any of the other all-time greatsâ€”Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, John D. MacDonald, James M. Cain, Robert Parker...every noir author who ever walked a detective, cop, or criminal into a shadowy alleyâ€”would be thrilled to call their own. Leonard, the man who has given us U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (currently starring in TVâ€™s Justified) is at his storytelling best, as a spurned wife decides to take a rightfulâ€”and profitableâ€”revenge on her deceiving hubby by teaming up with the two thugs he hired to abduct her.
