"What happens to good guys once they get control?" When Elmore Leonard died in 2013, he was not only thought of as a great crime writer, but simply a great writer, a master of plot, character, and dialogue. And he left behind a lot of books, which I've been gradually working my through. Originally published in 1982, much of the action of "Cat Chaser" takes place in the Dominican Republic. Also check out "Cubra Libre." Made into a forgotten about film in the late 80s. Rest in peace Elmore.
