Synopsis:

?Cat Chaser is just what one would expect from Elmore Leonard?quirky, peopled with oddball characters?and more twists and turns than a roller coaster.?
?Cleveland Plain Dealer

?A superior example of gritty writing and violent action.?
?New York Times

There are numerous reasons why Grand Master Elmore Leonard is considered ?the coolest, hottest thriller writer in America? (Chicago Tribune) and ?the greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever? (New York Times Book Review). Cat Chaser is one of them. A gripping, lightning-paced tale of an ex-soldier-turned Florida motel owner whose dangerous affair with the mistress of a Dominican general in exile?a former death squad leader?threatens to have lethal consequences?especially when drugs, double-cross, and murderous mob thugs are added into the mix. A classic thriller from crime fiction master who first brought us U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, currently of TV?s Justified, Cat Chaser proves once more that when the true greats of mystery and suspense are mentioned?John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, Robert Parker, et al?Elmore Leonard tops the list.

Product Description: A lean and mean thriller about one man and the Mob from 'the crime laureate' INDEPENDENT. The last time Florida motel owner George Moran was in the Dominican Republic he was in a uniform and people were shooting at him. Years later he's back looking for a girl he lost - and finding one he'd be better off without. But that doesn't matter to George while he's sleeping with beautiful Mary de Boya - only when he discovers his lover is the wife of a former death squad general in exile with mob connections. So much for the trip down memory lane - now Moran finds himself in a cat's cradle of drug deals, swindles, vengeance and murder.
