Kind of a long drawn out book. It picks up a little in second half. Ending was lame and predictable.

Fantastic book with lots of laugh's. It's amazing to think that at his age, with the number of books he's written, he is still creative and growing as a writer.

Interesting look at Somali Pirates and al Queda operatives and the shady world of international terrorism, but Djibouti suffers from the same predicament of the main protagonist, a documentary film maker who can't decide if she is making a documentary or an action flick. Elmore is losing his touch, methinks.

Leonard's 44th "Novel is full of inside jokes - the famous ten rules of writing take a beating - but thankfully the Somalia pirate yarn takes over in the second half."

Crime master Elmore Leonard branches out a bit (but not too much) in this tale of a documentary filmmaker who finds herself involved with, among others, an al Qaeda bad guy. The exotic setting in the titular location is attractive, as is the examination of piracy in that part of the world. In the end, nobody writes hardboilded dialog and characters like Leonard.
