The Moonshine Warby Elmore Leonard
Elmore Leonard knows bad guys do bad
It's Prohibition and when a big hell-raiser like Son Martin gets his mitts on something special -- namely $125,000 worth of Kentucky's finest homeboy whiskey -- no one is about to steal it. Because when it comes to fighting, shooting, and plain outsmarting the big boys, Son Martin just isn't good. He's bad. Dangerous. And deadly.
Elmore Leonard knows bad guys do bad, and here he gives them a chance to have at it.
