52 Pick Up by Elmore Leonard

In a game of sex and blackmail the only way to win was murder

Detroit businessman Harry Mitchell had only one affair in his twenty-two years of happy matrimony. Unfortunately, someone caught his indiscretion on film and now wants Harry to fork over one hundred grand to keep it a secret. And if Harry doesn’t pay up, the blackmailer and his associates plan to press a lot harder. Up to and including murder, if necessary. But the psychos picked the wrong person for their murderous scam. Because Harry Mitchell doesn’t get mad...he gets even.

  1. Definitely want to read this one... and watch the movie. Haven't read any Elmore Leonard yet and need to remedy that.
