“Leonard is tops in his field.”
New Orleans Times-Picayune

The great Elmore Leonard, “America’s pre-eminent crime fiction writer” (Chicago Tribune), takes readers back to Prohibition days in the back hills of Kentucky in a rollicking story of guns, greed, and illegally brewed corn liquor. The Moonshine War is a tale of the chaos that ensues when a gang of city slickers sets out to steal thousands of dollars-worth of homemade whiskey from a hell-raising country boy—who is anything but the easy mark they were expecting. A rediscovered Elmore Leonard classic, The Moonshine War is a wild ride bursting with the author’s hallmark delights: the twisty plot, the gripping suspense, the wit and, of course, the razor-sharp dialogue. It’s no wonder that the creator of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens—lately the star of the hit TV series Justified—is always listed among the mystery and crime fiction elite, including John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, and Robert Parker, and often at the very top of the list.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Mark Hammer sets the scene using a gravelly voice and an Ozark drawl for this rerelease of an early Leonard novel…Hammer’s greatest contribution comes from the lethargy he portrays as the men plot while partaking of their best product, sipped from dirty Mason jars.”

    " A fun read from Elmore Leonard about bootleggers in rural Kentucky in the 30s. Tightly plotted and suspenseful. One of my favorites of his. "

    " Enjoyed it, Elmore Leonard was a good story teller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Kit | 10/31/2010

    " A real Leonard gem. I'd also be willing to bet a reasonable amount of pocket change that Quentin Tarantino based a bit of the backstory for Brad Pitt's character in Inglorious Basterds on an amalgam of characters/events from this moonshine yarn. "

    " Prohibition-era shenanigans in the South plus a mystery that keeps you guessing. Great cast of characters and short enough to breeze through in a weekend. "
