    The smallest of small-time criminals, Ernest Stickley Jr. figures his luck's about to change when Detroit used-car salesman Frank Ryan catches him trying to boost a ride from Ryan's lot. Frank's got some surefire schemes for getting rich quick - all of them involving guns - and all Stickley has to do is follow "Ryan's Rules" to share the wealth. But sometimes rules need to be bent, maybe even broken, if one is to succeed in the world of crime, especially if the "brains" of the operation knows less than nothing.

    What disappointed you about Swag?

    I love Elmore Leonard but I just wasn't captivated by this book. Not really sure if it was the story or the narrator but I never finished it. Maybe I'll go back to it someday and try again.

    To the costermongers of Covent Garden Eddie Pettit was a gentle soul with a gift for working with horses. When Eddie is killed in a violent accident, the grieving costers are skeptical about the cause of his death. Who would want to kill Eddie - and why? Maisie Dobbs' father, Frankie, had been a costermonger, so she had known the men since childhood. She remembers Eddie fondly and is determined to offer her help. But it soon becomes clear that powerful political and financial forces are equally determined to prevent her from learning the truth behind Eddie's death.

    Would you listen to Elegy for Eddie again? Why?

    I probably will listen again when enough time has passed for me to be a little surprised by things.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I just love the honesty in the character of Daisy Dobbs. Her ability to listen to others and not be afraid of questioning herself is refreshing. Really appreciate a strong female character in post WW1 England. And, of course, the mystery was complicated and intriguing.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great series for those of us who like a measured pace and fully developed characters. The stories feel like they are about real people. I would suggest starting the series from the beginning to really appreciate the character of Daisy.
