  • "In a novel filled with his signatures - nerve-shattering suspense, crackling dialogue, scathing wit, twisted plot, mad scams and daring surprises - Elmore Leonard proves once again why he sets the standard against which all other crime novels are measured. 'Get Shorty' follows the fortunes of Chili Palmer, a Miami loan shark with a talent for making a 'slow pay' come across. His pursuit of a mark who's behind in his payments takes him first to Las Vegas, then to Hollywood and horror-film producer Harry Zimm. It seems that Harry has gambled away $200,000 earmarked for his next production, and his investors, who run a limo-and-drugs service for the Hollywood crowd, will kill to know where their money is. But in the land of make-believe Chili suddenly finds himself forming an uneasy partnership with Harry - in between evaluating screenplays, taking meetings with studio execs, and pitching a movie idea of his own. Who would have thought that successful hood would have the right job skills to make it big in Hollywood? Now all Chili has to do to reap the rewards is stay one step ahead of a trigger-happy investor who wants him removed from the scenario...permanently."
  • "Overview: Mob-connected loan shark Chili Palmer is sick of the Miami grind-plus his "friends" have a bad habit of dying there. So when he chases a deadbeat client out to Hollywood, Chili figures he might like to stay. This town, with its dream-makers, glitter, hucksters, and liars-plus gorgeous, partially clad would-be starlets everywhere you look-seems ideal for an enterprising criminal with a taste for the cinematic. Besides, Chili's got an idea for a killer movie, though it could very possibly kill him to get it made."@en
  • "CRIME & MYSTERY. Collecting money for the Mob isn't too different from any other job, reckons Miami loan shark Chili Palmer. He soon finds himself ordered to collect on a bad debt from Leo Devoe, a guy who died in a plane crash. But it turns out Leo isn't dead - he's living it up in Las Vegas on the compensation money. So Chili follows him to Vegas and then on to Hollywood, where he gets drawn into the world of movies."

  • "Loan shark Chili Palmer didn't say anything when Ray Bones stole his leather jacket from Vesuvio's in Miami. He just went to Ray's house, broke his nose, took the jacket, and left. Twelve years later, on account of his boss getting whacked, Chili finds himself working for Bones and ordered to collect on a bad debt from Leo Devoe, a guy who died in a plane crash. But it turns out Leo isn't dead; he's in Las Vegas with the $300,000 the airline paid to his wife. So Chili follows him to Vegas and then on to Hollywood, where he hooks up with movie producers, actors, and studio execs. Getting Leo becomes a movie pitch unfolding in a city where every move you make is a potential scene, and making it big isn't all that different from making your bones: You gotta know who to pitch, who to hit, and how to knock 'em dead."@en
