It's not Carmen Colson and her ironworker husband Wayne's fault that they were in the real estate office when a pair of thugs walked in with extortion on their minds. But as far as aging Ojibway Indian hitman Armand Degas is concerned, the Colsons are going to have to pay dearly for seeing too much, and for the damage Wayne inflicted on Armand and his sicko partner Richie Nix with a tire iron. The cops here in middle-of-nowhere Michigan can't help Carmen and Wayne out, and the best the Feds can offer is the Witness Protection Program. So ultimately it's going to have to come down to one wife, one husband, two killers, and one lethal shot. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Very satisfying read. Leonard is a master of dialogue. I didn't realize until the very end that I had seen a movie made from this. As usual, I preferred the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 2/4/2014

    " An excellent thriller. Well written with surprisingly deep characters for this type of book. Leonard's style is quite evocative, making the reader really experience the characters' anger and fear. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 1/23/2014

    " Punchy writing. Great characters. The story really didn't add up to much though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry | 1/10/2014

    " I liked this more than my bookclub did. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dan Beaver | 1/5/2014

    " Standard fare; not Leonard at his best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stunatra | 12/31/2013

    " I loved this book, couldn't put the damn thing down. It has everything I want in crime fiction. My favorite Leonard novel so far. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chip | 12/19/2013

    " Not so great. Just ok...sadly. It started off great, but then some of the characters just start acting...well, stupid. I just had a hard time buying a lot of what different characters did, and after a while, it just distracted me from the story. Leonard's written so much better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Jackson | 12/11/2013

    " I really enjoy his characters but some of Elmore Leonard's novels are hit or miss for me. After reading Djibouti, I was ready to give up on him but somehow found myself reading another one. Really enjoyed the characters (as always) but also the writing and pacing in Killshot kept me wanting more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott Archer | 11/13/2013

    " Started out great. Felt it ended right as the story was just beginning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen | 9/15/2013

    " Not a great book, but a terse, and palpably suspenseful crime piece that reads well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Woodge | 4/26/2013

    " One of my favorite Elmore Leonard novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jefferson | 1/20/2013

    " Never read Elmore Leonard before. Fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ethan | 8/3/2012

    " Great writing, suspenseful; classic Leonard. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 4/8/2012

    " My first by this author, Killshot kept me wondering how it could possibly work out, right up until the very end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike DaRonco | 1/14/2012

    " Eh. Local (Detroit) boy makes good, sells a shit load of books, affords second home in Florida, doesn't have to try anymore. At least Mickey Rouke's in the movie adaptation, so that counts for something, right? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chas Andrews | 1/9/2012

    " I enjoyed the book for the most part. Carmen and Wayne are great characters, and I can see Armand and Richie. I liked the ending, but was hoping for a bigger "bang." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wingedbeaver | 11/1/2011

    " I really haven't read Leonard. This seemed pretty standard from the movies adaptions I've seen. Quick read, not much too it, probably a good read between heavier material. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Murphy | 10/2/2011

    " I was hooked from the first page. Killshot was an exciting, unique crime thriller with an engaging plot and complex characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maxfield | 8/12/2011

    " pretty poor, Mr. Leonard. lackluster in the face of your other work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brent | 5/14/2011

    " First Leonard novel I've read. Not bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sufferingbruin | 4/20/2011

    " the first and last thirds of the book are fantastic; vintage Leonard. The penultimate confrontation is remarkably tense; first time I've had my heart rate up while reading a book. The WitSec scenes are a major dead spot but easily forgiven because the rest is fantastic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 4/7/2011

    " Totally different from what I normally read, but I did like it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 3/8/2011

    " I really liked the last line. "

    " Eh. Local (Detroit) boy makes good, sells a shit load of books, affords second home in Florida, doesn't have to try anymore. At least Mickey Rouke's in the movie adaptation, so that counts for something, right? "

    " Not as good as EL's best, but not too, too bad "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cortney | 8/4/2010

    " I heard great things about Leonard, but I really couldn't get into this book and quit half-way through. Too much cursing and vulgarity for my taste. I don't think I'll be trying anymore of his work. "
