Elmore Leonard’s The Switch is one of those novels you read and ask yourself why somebody hasn’t made a movie out it yet. As usual with Leonard, the plot is tight, the characterizations vivid, and the dialogue sparkling. The man’s ear is astonishing.
Well worth a read if you’re into Leonard, and if you haven’t been exposed to him before, this novel makes a good introduction to his style.
