“Wonderful…razor-sharp.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Excellent….A plot and a chase as good as anything he has ever written.”
Bergan Record

In Elmore Leonard’s The Hunted, “crime fiction’s greatest living practitioner” (Washington Post) carries the action far from his usual Detroit, Miami, and Los Angeles milieus, all the way to the Middle East. There no lack of excitement and suspense—and the trademark Leonard dialogue—in this superior tale of a fugitive hiding under the radar in Israel, until a well-publicized Good Samaritan act attracts the unwanted attention of well-armed Motown mobsters who are now coming to get him. The author who introduced the world to U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (in his novels Pronto and Riding the Rap, before the lawman became the star of the hit TV drama Justified), the Grand Master shows why the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel calls him “the all-time king of the whack job crime novelists,” and goes on to say that “Elmore Leonard tops them all”…including John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, Robert B. Parker, and quite possibly every major mystery writer the U.S. has ever produced.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 12/18/2009

    " An early Leonard novel, that had that feel of an old espionage tale. My first Leonard novel, won't be my last. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frederick | 7/23/2009

    " Very good until the end, Rather a weak finish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 6/26/2009

    " A straightforward thriller. Not bad but I don't read a lot of these kinds of books. I like a more fantasy element. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nate | 3/16/2009

    " Oldschool 1977 Elmore Leonard pulp about another classically shady protagonist, hiding out in Israel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andy | 3/15/2009

    " Like most of his books and enjoyable and easy read, pure entertainment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Godzilla | 3/11/2009

    " I loved the chracterisations, and the opening was sharp and pacy. However I felt the flow disappeared about half way through, and the denouement was disappointing, with a rushed and incomplete feeling to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 11/14/2008

    " Strange, oddly zen book by Leonard, set in Isreal. Dozens of characters, no real focus, swirls all over the place... and yet always compelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich | 7/23/2008

    " elmore in Israel; or the Holy Land = Detroit "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chip | 10/21/2007

    " Fun, quick read. As promised by the friend who gave me the book, Leonard has an amazing hear for dialogue, maybe the best in fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 nina | 4/8/2007

    " At his best, Elmore Leonard is the master of a tight plot and of stylized dialogue. He hasn't been at his best for the last ten years, but his early stuff is a delight. This is one of my favorites. "
