I got like 5 pages into the book before I realized that this was the source material for "Jackie Brown". A fun read. About as hard-boiled as hard-boiled gets. I gotta say the movie version of this book doesn't add much. Every clever twist, every violent act, every deadpan line...anyway, Tarantino kinda blows is what I am trying to say. A hack of a director with Leonard's writing doing all of the heavy lifting.
