'Kill Shot' is a fast-paced, edgy and action-filled novel with strong emphasis on character, which is what one comes to expect from Elmore Leonard. Leonard effectively paints telling portraits complete with physical details, emotions and mannerisms. These are people you can imagine existing. Yet, Leonard never short changes on plot or suspense. This book hums along. The killers are always reprehensible, but Leonard somehow makes them human, with their own particular vulnerabilities. Yet, they are never, ever sympathetic. Richie Nix is a sociopath; he only sees people as objects to be used or eliminated. The Bird is somewhat more understanding and empathetic, but he too is cold and bloodless. Carmen and Wayne Colson are a married couple who get caught up in a shakedown scam by mistake, and they end up having the two killers on their trail. Leonard does an outstanding job with the minor characters who play small but pivotal roles, such as Donna, the woman who becomes a lover to both killers; Carmen's ever-complaining mother; or the egotistical deputy sheriff. While the reader may find him or herself rooting more against the evilness of Richie or the Bird rather than for any compelling trait in Carmen or Wayne, there is more than enough tension inherent in 'Kill Shot' to make this a very good read.

I found this book to have no suspense. Nwhen you were being led intona situation nothing really happened. No spectacular ending at all. Would not recommend. Perhaps i am reading too many mysteries of late.

I had been wanting to read Leonard novels for a long time and this is my first taste of the Elmore Leonard style. I am a huge fan of Quentin T I arantino and George Pelecanos, who are inspired by Leonard's novels, and I can see why so many people think Leonard is one of the best crime writers. Killshot has great characters and dialogue, which is way more important than the plot. I definitely plan on reading more Elmore Leonard novels.
