(A book in the Carl Webster series)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Taken from the beginning, middle and mature years of Carl Webster's crime-fighting career, these two stories and one title-giving novella show Elmore Leonard at the top of his game. Comfort to the Enemy begins with a murder at a German POW camp. We're in Webster's twilight years: the bank robbers of the 1920s are gone and Carl has married Louly. Oklahoma is full of POW camps with crewmen and grenadiers from the Afrika Korps, and some just keep escaping. Befriending one escapee, Carl gets embroiled in a tale of gangsters' molls, enemy lines, and promises of what will happen after the war. With excellent dialogue, grippingly credible characters and old-school glamour, Comfort to the Enemy is all you'd expect from the grand old man of American crime fiction.
