Edition language: English
Vintage Leonard written back in the seventies and set in Detroit. Blackmail, double crosses, and a bit of engineering made the plot hum along at a good pace.
Blackmailers have factory owner Harry Mitchell over a barrel. Either he pays them $105,000 a year or they turn over an incriminating film of him cheating on his wife to the police and press, and more, if he doesn't pay up. Too bad Harry Mitchell has ideas of his own...Elmore Leonard sure knows how...
Hard to not like an Elmore Leonard book! As usual, a great read.
An early Leonard classic about a black-mail victim out for payback.
