Description-
  • The odd thing about 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. They even share the same birthday.

    Honey Deal, Walter's American wife, doesn't know that Walter is a member of a spy ring that sends U.S. war production data to Germany and gives shelter to escaped German prisoners of war. But she's tired of telling him jokes he doesn't understand—it's time to get a divorce.

    Along comes Carl Webster, the hot kid of the Marshals Service. He's looking for Jurgen Schrenk, a former Afrika Korps officer who escaped from a POW camp in Oklahoma. Carl's pretty sure Walter's involved with keeping Schrenk hidden, so Carl gets to know Honey, hoping she'll take him to Walter. Carl then meets Vera Mezwa, the nifty Ukrainian head of the spy ring who's better looking than Mata Hari, and her tricky lover Bohdan with the Buster Brown haircut and a sly way of killing.

    Honey's a free spirit; she likes the hot kid marshal and doesn't much care that he's married. But all Carl wants is to get Jurgen Schrenk without getting shot. 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.

About the Author-
  • Elmore Leonard wrote forty-five novels and nearly as many western and crime short stories across his highly successful career that spanned more than six decades. Some of his bestsellers include Road Dogs, Up in Honey's Room, The Hot Kid, Mr. Paradise, Tishomingo Blues, and the critically acclaimed collection of short stories Fire in the Hole. Many of his books have been made into movies, including Get Shorty, Out of Sight, and Rum Punch, which became Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown. Justified, the hit series from FX, is based on Leonard's character Raylan Givens, who appears in Riding the Rap, Pronto, Raylan and the short story "Fire in the Hole". He was a recipient of the National Book Foundation's Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, the Lifetime Achievement Award from PEN USA, and the Grand Master Award of the Mystery Writers of America. He was known to many as the 'Dickens of Detroit' and was a long-time resident of the Detroit area.

Reviews-
  • New York Times

    "When you read Elmore Leonard, you enter Mr. Leonard's world. A trip like that is its own kind of vacation."

  • Washington Post

    "Reading UP IN HONEY'S ROOM is like dancing with the stars and Elmore Leonard's the star."

  • Christian Science Monitor

    "Bullets fly, but as with most ELmore Leonard novels, things really move when the dialogue gets going. Grade A."

  • Seattle Times

    "Proof that (Leonard) is at the top of his game."

  • Booklist (starred review)

    "The dialogue flows as fast and smooth as any words ever uttered in the service of a story."

  • Philadelphia Inquirer

    "Elmore Leonard is still at the top of his game."

  • Richmond Times-Dispatch

    "It's the cast of characters that makes readers keep turning the pages."

  • Publishers Weekly

    "Leonard's writing--line by line--is as sharp as ever."

  • Boston Globe

    "With Dashiell Hammett-type wit (Leonard) has once again created characters who live far beyond their storylines."

  • Toronto Sun

    "Honey Deal is hot, hot, hot. Classic Leonard."

  • Cleveland Plain Dealer

    "A best-selling bet. Dead-perfect dialogue, deadpan humor and dead-on vivid characters typical of Leonard."

  • St. Petersburg Times

    "The wisecracks and sexy patter and vivid characters are what make Leonard a guy we're always happy to see."

  • Buffalo News

    "The kind of delicious drama that will keep you coming back for more."

  • Vancouver Sun

  • Associated Press

    "As usual, (Elmore Leonard) tells his story in his flawlessly colloquial prose style, with pitch-perfect dialogue.

  • The Times (London)

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

  • The Age (Melbourne, Australia)

    "Action-packed and pricelessly funny."

  • Poughkeepsie Journal

    "The pacing is fast. The dialogue is dead-on. This is vintage Leonard."
