Get Shorty

(1990)
(The first book in the Chili Palmer series)
A novel by

 
 
In a novel filled with his signatures -- nerve-shattering suspense, crackling dialogue, scathing wit -- Elmore Leonard proves once again why he sets the standard against which all other crime novels are measured. In Get Shorty, he takes a mobster to Hollywood, where the women are gorgeous, the men are corrupt, and making it big isn't all that different from making your bones: you gotta know who to pitch, who to hit, and how to knock 'em dead.

Get Shorty is now a major motion picture directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and starring John Travolta, Gene Hackman, Ren Russo and Danny DeVito.
