'Road Dogs' unites three familiar characters from Leonard's earlier novels - Jack Foley, Cuando Rey, wealthy conman and Cuban refugee ('LaBrava'), and Dawn Navarro, a beautiful psychic from 'Riding the Rap'. 'Road Dogs' is the story of gentleman/banker-robber Jack Foley, who got caught by a die-pack on one easy robbery. He's back in prison doing a thirty-year sentence after a week-long escape. Foley has been brought in by Karen Sisco, US marshall, who got her man after being abducted with the escapees. Jack and Karen have a thing for each other, and Karen arrests him after a meaningful 'time'out' together. Jack is resigning himself to doing time, lots of it, and he seems to have a friendly and easy control over the hardened criminals he is imprisoned with. This easiness is enhanced in the minds of others by his fame as a bank robber. It is this ease which impresses Cuando Rey, a Cuban refugee and criminal who is doing time for murder. Cuando arranges to have Foley's sentence hugely reduced, but has favours aplenty to ask when they're both released.Cuando's wife, Dawn, is pretending to be saintly all the while (whilst quite the opposite) under the negligent eye of The Monk, a gay accountant similarly in thrall to Cuando. Foley is freed, and, as he fears, Cuando wants to use him on a job, just as his every move is being scrutinised by FBI detective Lou Adams. In an instant, though, Dawn has seduced him, and she has an agenda all of her own.
