Abstract:

"Masterful ... gemlike ... bone-chilling."--Los Angeles times book review. An Audiofile Earphones Award winner. Ironworker Wayne Colson and his spirited wife Carmen are witnesses to a shakedown scam--witnesses who must be eliminated. Enter Armand Degas, aka Blackbird, the brains of the operation, and his partner Richie Nix, an ex-con whose highest goal is to rob a bank in every state. A lively chase ensues when the Colsons enter the Federal Witness Security Program with two bumbling but determined killers on their trail. With its dead-on dialogue, memorable characters, and absolute authenticity, this is one of Elmore Leonard's all time great novels.
