    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.

    D. Sevener says: "Fun tale, well told, great narration"

    Would you listen to Swag again? Why?

    Yes! I thought Frank Muller did a great job switching between the main characters of Stick and Frank.


    What other book might you compare Swag to and why?

    It reminds me of Tishamingo Blues because the main characters are criminals. Some of Leonard's books focus on good guys and some focus on bad guys, but they all have tough chicks.


    Which character – as performed by Frank Muller – was your favorite?

    Stick


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Wheel man + con man = hold up men!


    Any additional comments?

    I had never heard or seen this Leonard title before I found it on Audible.com, and I didn't expect to be too impressed. It was certainly a nice surprise.
