About this title

Synopsis:

“Lean, mean, darkly funny.”
Boston Globe

“A zingy thriller by the master of hard-boiled suspense.”
Dallas Morning News

“Elmore Leonard may be the greatest crime novelist in the world,” declares the Seattle Times, and truer words have never been written. Just follow the Grand Master of mystery and suspense to Florida’s Gold Coast and you’ll quickly discover that it’s so. In this classic Elmore Leonard thriller, a beautiful mafia widow stands to lose everything her late mob boss husband left her if she succumbs to her desire for an attractive Detroit ex-con—so the two conspire to outwit the thugs the dead capo assigned to make sure she stays chaste. Superior crime fiction in the vein of John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, and Robert Parker—chock full of the eccentric characters, black humor, and razor-sharp dialogue for which the acclaimed creator of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (of TV’s Justified) is justifiably famous—Gold Coast is gold standard Leonard.

From the Publisher:

Gorgeous widow Karen diCilia just found out what it really means to be married to the mob. Her mafia husband Frank left her millions and a Florida Gold Coast mansion. He also left orders that she'd lose everything the day she slept with another man. With his boys as enforcers, Karen was soon a lonely lady. Then she meets Detroit's Cal Maguire, a sexy, street-smart ex-con with a scam to get Karen her money and freedom . . . or get them both killed.
