Rum Punch by Elmore Leonard


Hardcover with dust jacket in excellent condition.  

As is the case with most of these 90's Leonard dust jackets, there is some separation happening with plasticine coating.   Otherwise, dust jacket is excellent with minimal wear; now housed in a new HQ brodart jacket protector.

Book itself is near mint and reads as new.

Rum Punch is classic Elmore Leonard—the electrifying thriller that served as the basis for the acclaimed film Jackie Brown by director Quentin Tarantino, starring Pam Grier, Robert DeNiro, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Ordell Robbie makes a fine living selling illegal high-powered weaponry to the wrong people. Jackie Burke couriers Ordell's profits from Freeport to Miami. But the feds are on to Jackie - and now the aging, but still hot, flight attendant will have to do prison time or play ball, which makes her a prime 'loose end' that Ordell needs to tie up...permanently. Jackie, however, has other plans. And with the help of Max Cherry - an honest but disgruntled bail bondsman looking to get out - she could even end up with a serious nest egg in the process.
