9780060084066: The Hunted

“Wonderful…razor-sharp.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Excellent….A plot and a chase as good as anything he has ever written.”
Bergan Record

In Elmore Leonard’s The Hunted, “crime fiction’s greatest living practitioner” (Washington Post) carries the action far from his usual Detroit, Miami, and Los Angeles milieus, all the way to the Middle East. There no lack of excitement and suspense—and the trademark Leonard dialogue—in this superior tale of a fugitive hiding under the radar in Israel, until a well-publicized Good Samaritan act attracts the unwanted attention of well-armed Motown mobsters who are now coming to get him. The author who introduced the world to U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (in his novels Pronto and Riding the Rap, before the lawman became the star of the hit TV drama Justified), the Grand Master shows why the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel calls him “the all-time king of the whack job crime novelists,” and goes on to say that “Elmore Leonard tops them all”…including John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, Robert B. Parker, and quite possibly every major mystery writer the U.S. has ever produced.

From the Inside Flap:

From Miami to Detroit to Hollywood, Elmore Leonard has carved out a classic turf--and populated it with unforgettable schemers, wiseguys, misfits, and hit men. In The Hunted, Leonard goes international, as a man named Rosen runs from some Motor City mobsters--all the way to Israel--and a U.S. marine finds a perfect little war.  Al Rosen is lying in bed with a beautiful divorcée when the hotel around them bursts into flames--and Rosen's photograph is captured on the news wire. Suddenly lawyers, guns, and money are coming after Al. So are two guys with bombs. Rosen knows his high life in the Holy Land is over. What he doesn't know is that he's about to meet the best friend a fugitive could ever have: a U.S. marine who has been looking for a future or a fight, and is willing to kill for both....

From the Back Cover:

Al Rosen was doing just fine, hiding out in Israel -- until he decided to play Good Samaritan and rescue some elderly tourists from a hotel fire. Now his picture's been carried in the stateside press, and the guys he's been hiding from know exactly where he is. And they're coming to get him -- crooked lawyers, men with guns and money, and assorted members of the Detroit mob who are harboring a serious grudge. Playtime in paradise is officially over; Rosen's a million miles from home with a bull's eye on his back. And his only ally is a U.S. Embassy marine who's been looking for a war . . . and who's damn well found one.
