Legendary New York Times bestselling author Elmore Leonard returns with three of his favorite characters: Jack Foley from Out of Sight, Cundo Rey from Labrava, and Dawn Navarro from Riding the Rap.

Jack Foley is serving a thirty-year sentence in a Miami penitentiary, but he’s made an unlikely friend on the inside who just might be able to do something about that. Fellow inmate Cundo Rey, an extremely wealthy Cuban criminal, arranges for Foley’s sentence to be reduced from thirty years to three months, and when Jack is released just two weeks ahead of Cundo, he agrees to wait for him in Venice Beach, California.

Also waiting for Cundo is his common-law wife, Dawn Navarro, a professional psychic with a slightly ulterior motive for staying with Cundo: she wants his money. And with the arrival of Jack, she sees the perfect partner in a plan to relieve Cundo of his fortune. Cundo may be Jack’s friend, but does that mean he can trust him? And can either of them trust Dawn?

Road Dogs is Elmore Leonard at his best, and readers will love seeing Cundo, Jack, and Dawn back in action and working together … or are they?

Quotes & Awards

  • “The story achieves almost instant escape verlocity.” 

    Stephen King

  • “Like Out of Sight? You’ll love this…a typically labryinthine tale featuring three of his best jive-talking ex-cons.” 


  • “No-one writes crime novels like Hollywood favourite Elmore Leonard, and he has returned with a typical tale of colourful hoodlums on the hunt for another scam...Great dialogue, great characters: 84-year-old Leonard, releasing his 47th novel, never fails to thrill.” 

    Edinburgh Evening News 

  • “One of Leonard’s most enjoyable romps to date...deserves to be read and re-read.” 

    Sunday Express

  • “A cause for celebration...a hugely entertaining read...it is a testament to Leonard’s skills that he manages to make each of his characters interesting and rounded...it is Leonard’s snappy dialogue that lifts his tale above other run of the mill crime capers.”

    Sunday Herald

  • “James slides easily between the book’s eclectic roster of characters, giving each of them clear and distinctive voices…Leonard continues to write the hippest crime fiction in town, and James's reading fits well with the author’s cooler than cool prose.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Landismom | 2/17/2014

    " Kind of meh. Out of Sight is a great caper novel, and this was a disappointing sequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Maggard | 2/5/2014

    " Oddly enough, this happens to be the sequel to Out of Sight, a movie I very much enjoyed and a book I dimly remember (I'm also looking at you, Get Shorty). He also uses two other characters from other novels that I haven't read. And I predict I'm going to only dimly remember this one too, Elmore. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Stephanie | 2/5/2014

    " Really awful. Did not live up to the promises on the jacket. May finish it, but probably not. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Chris | 2/1/2014

    " I had high hopes for this book base3d on overall reviews of Leonard's other works. The point of view shifts in often inexplicable ways and times which does keep the reader engaged. I liked the unexpected ending. I won't rule out reading other Leonard's books but I don't think I'll hunt them down. "
