“Lean, mean, darkly funny.”
Boston Globe

“A zingy thriller by the master of hard-boiled suspense.”
Dallas Morning News

“Elmore Leonard may be the greatest crime novelist in the world,” declares the Seattle Times, and truer words have never been written. Just follow the Grand Master of mystery and suspense to Florida’s Gold Coast and you’ll quickly discover that it’s so. In this classic Elmore Leonard thriller, a beautiful mafia widow stands to lose everything her late mob boss husband left her if she succumbs to her desire for an attractive Detroit ex-con—so the two conspire to outwit the thugs the dead capo assigned to make sure she stays chaste. Superior crime fiction in the vein of John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, and Robert Parker—chock full of the eccentric characters, black humor, and razor-sharp dialogue for which the acclaimed creator of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (of TV’s Justified) is justifiably famous—Gold Coast is gold standard Leonard.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Leonard’s coolly satiric eye for the loopy world of Florida’s Gold Coast is unmatched in contemporary crime fiction.” 

    Washington Post

  • “Lean, mean, darkly funny.” 

    Boston Globe

  • “A zingy thriller by the master of hard-boiled suspense.” 

    Dallas Morning News

  • “The late Frank Muller’s performance of Gold Coast, originally released in 1995, is truly extraordinary…Muller narrates with such subtlety—the slightest degree of tone and accent differentiates one character from the next—that he hypnotizes you with his voice until you forget you’re listening to a story instead of experiencing it yourself.”

    " Finished "Gold Coast" by Elmore Leonard. Though a little dated (or maybe it's just accurate to the time period in which it took place), it was a decent story that used stereotypes pretty well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Matt | 6/6/2010

    " Quick read, not as good as the other Leonard novels I have read. Characters are rich but predictable. Try something else if you've never read Elmore Leonard. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Laura | 2/1/2010

    " An okay thriller. Though I wasn't overly thrilled and I really didn't care if the "good guys" won. "
