The “Hot Kid” of the US Marshals Service, Carl Webster maintains the law with a cool, showdown attitude. He’s one of the richest creations in Elmore Leonard’s half-century of delivering the goods. From his appearances in the critically acclaimed novels The Hot Kid and Up in Honey’s Room, Carl returns to lay down the law in a novella that originally appeared as a serial in the New York Times Sunday Magazine.

The title novella—plus two Carl Webster short stories—traces Carl’s career from his run-in with 1930s gangsters to his investigation of a murder at a German POW camp in Oklahoma. This time it’s Carl against war-seasoned Afrika Korps Nazis. With its pitch-perfect dialogue, compelling characters, and classic charm, Comfort to the Enemy is vintage Leonard.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An excellent read. The zing of Leonard’s prose, the ease with which his characters come to life, and the moral questions raised by the 1940s setting…are concrete evidence of a master crime writer still at the top of his game.” 

    Russel McLean, author of The Good Son

  • “A Western hero pitted against gangsters and Nazis—what could be better?”
