    "A STORY AS ONLY ELMORE LEONARD COULD TELL IT"
    What did you love best about Gold Coast?

    The characters were typical Elmore Lenorad people - the underbelly of society. they're funny, clever and always ready to con a con.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gold Coast?

    The entire story was memorable. Elmore Leonard had "the gift."


    Have you listened to any of Frank Muller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed so many stories narrated by Frank Muller. He did narrations for John Grisham, Stephen King, Elmore Leonard and many others. All his performances were great. He was the best of the best.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the end. The whole story was great and then - the end. It just hung there.

    "mediocre Leonard"

    Plotting was far weaker in this one than so many of the other books he has written. a disappointment
