The odd thing about Walter Schoen, German born but now running a butcher shop in Detroit, is that he's a dead ringer for Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS and the Gestapo. Honey Deal, Walter's American wife, doesn't know that Walter is a member of a spy ring and gives shelter to escaped German POWs. But she's tired of telling him jokes he doesn't understand; it's time for a divorce.

Along comes Carl Webster, the Hot Kid of the Marshals Service. He's looking for Jurgen Schrenk. Carl's pretty sure Walter's involved with keeping Schrenk hidden, so he gets to know Honey, hoping she'll lead him to Walter. Honey likes the hot kid marshal and doesn't much care that he's married. But all Carl wants is to get Jurgen without getting shot.

Next, Carl meets Vera Mezwa, the Ukrainian head of the spy ring, and her lover Bohdan, who has a sly way of killing. And then there's Otto, the Waffen-SS major who runs away with a nice Jewish girl. It's Elmore Leonard's world: gritty, funny, and full of surprises. Download and start listening now!

    " It's a quick, smart book with a lot of gripping dialogue. I just love the way the Lawman Carl Webster moves through the scenes, picking apart what's important and realizing that his priorities are changing as the story progresses. He's a man who's not afraid of anything and yet he's barely able to keep control of the plot that may be unraveling around him by the beautiful and treacherous Honey. Leonard's writing is, as always, smooth. "

    " Elmore Leonard's ability to be zippy and fun even as his characters go through horrifying events never fails to amaze me. "

    " Classic Leonard, although the time period is WWII Detroit and involves spies and con-men/women of every persuasion. The audible version was brilliantly read by Arliss Howard. "

    " If you're looking to itch that crime novel scratch right now, check out Elmore Leonard's "Up in Honey's Room." I loved it. It's got everything. Nazis, spies, a double-crossing cross-dresser, high-heeled dames packing heat and inner city Detroit. What more could you want? "
