The Odd Thingabout Walter Schoen, German born but now running a butcher shop in Detroit, 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, with 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Combines everything we love about Leonard’s works--big guns, morally clueless murderers, sexy dames and handsome lawmen. A masterpiece.”

    USA Today

  • “Reading Up in Honey’s Room is like dancing with the stars, and he's the star. You don’t have to teach him anything or look for flaws in the smoothness of his steps or watch to see whether there will be gaps in his plots, or whether his characters will—if even for an instant—slip out of character. You just get to be lost in the dance with him as he gives unimaginable depth and dimension to the phrase ‘easily and effortlessly.’”

    Washington Post

  • “So compulsive, so entertaining, so satisfying. Dialogue as imaginative, unpredictable and witty as we have come to expect from Leonard.”

    Times (London)

  • “No American author has a better ear for dialogue. Leonard is as straight a shooter as his hot-kid hero.”


  • “Bullets fly, but as with most ELmore Leonard novels, things really move when the dialogue gets going.”

    Christian Science Monitor

  • “The dialogue flows as fast and as smooth as any words ever uttered in service of a story. It’s as if the best of Mel Brooks and Quentin Tarantino were refined into something altogether finer and purer.”
