Maximum Bob

Elmore Leonard

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Crime & mystery

The New York Times bestselling author of Be Cool and Get Shorty

When someone delivers an alligator to Judge Bob Gibbs' porch, there's no shortage of suspects - hard-sentencing, womanising redneck 'Maximum Bob' is pretty much the most unpopular man in Florida.

Throw into the mix the Crowe clan - about as primitive and aggressive as any alligator - a doped-up doctor on early release with a tag, quick-witted probation officer Kathy Baker, a mermaid and a long-dead slave girl called Wanda and things get a tad complicated.

And inevitably, they don't work out the way you might expect.
