Overview

Pretty working-girl Jackie Burke is in a tight spot. She's just been picked up at Palm Beach International with fifty grand and some blow stashed in her flight bag. Lucky for her, the Feds want something Jackie's got: the inside track to Ordell Robbie, the notoriusly slick arms dealer. And they're ready to deal—Ordell in exchange for her freedom. But Jackie's got another ace up her sleeve. . .Enter Max Cherry, bail bondsman. Big, tough, basically decent Max is on the verge of divorce and tired of the same old grind. That's where Jackie comes in. The fifty big ones are peanuts compared to what Ordell's got locked away in Freeport. But when a blowsy blond blowhead and a none-too-bright ex con try to muscle in on the action, it's time to pull and old bait and switch—where the good guys are played off against the bad guys—and where Jackie and Max hope to walk off into the Florida sunset with a hot half million in cold cash.

    A structural disaster with a bland plot!

    I have heard so much about Elmore Leonard and how I would love his works. I have a couple of his books sitting on the shelf for quite awhile and finally got around to reading this and am a little unclear as to where the large scale appeal comes from. The plot here is pretty basic and I was waiting for something unique or unpredictable but it never happened. It was pretty basic. My biggest problem was with both the dialogue and the structure of the book. Many many times it was difficult to keep track of conversations and who was talking and what they were talking about. Overall, this is something that I would have been fine skipping.

    Excellent

    I loved this book! I didn't read it until after watching Tarantino's 'Jackie Brown.' The book and movie are different enough that you may enjoy both.

    I love this book!!!!

    I loved the book and has such a powerful feel to it. I also reccomend Quentin Tarantino's 'Jackie Brown'(movie) because Quentin portrays it on screen so good. He just changes the title to the name of the flight attendent who is African-American in the movie but in the book she is white. There is a couple of changes. I would say to read the book and than watch the movie. The book was funny, fun, and thrilling. Elmore Leonard does it again writing a good book and Quentin does a good job with the movie.

    Excellent

    I liked it good story line, the only thing is that he didnt describe some of the place where the event happen very well. But excellent dialouge between the charactors. I recomend this book for anyone into crime novels.

    RUM PUNCH by ELMORE LEONARD is a great book

    Elmore Leonard is a great writer and Rum Punch proves it. The movie is great, so don't beleive kids in film school. Rum Punch is the first Elmore Leonard book I've read, and it encouraged me to read his earlier books.

    PUNCH DRUNK

    This is probably one of Elmore Leonard's finest books. Certainly, funny and energetic and an in-depth understanding about the crime worlds and characters he often writes about. Many of Leonard's movies have been made into full-lenght feature films, but none so accurately captured as 'Get Shorty.' Quentin Tarantino's lacking 'Jackie Brown' is more of an ode to his masturbation years over aged wonder Pam Grier. The film adaption is not worth your time of day as to taking the time to relate and know the characters in 'Rum Punch.'
