Publisher's Summary

A character so outrageous he could only have come from the ingenious imagination of Elmore Leonard, lewd, lecherous, law-bending Florida jurist Judge Robert "Maximum Bob" Gibbs has been judged guilty by a grudge-bearing malefactor and sentenced to death - by alligator, if necessary. Maximum Bob is a delightfully dark classic thriller from "the greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever" (New York Times Book Review), and any listener who loved getting gleefully lost in the criminal mayhem of Get Shorty, Rum Punch, Out of Sight, The Hot Kid, or any number of the inimitable Leonard's numerous crime fiction masterworks will get maximum enjoyment out of this one.

Formula

Story lacked any surprises. Powerful old man chasing younger women somewhat work connected. Very predictable.

Consistent

Elmore delivers a sad one - and will the hell says he lacks strong women characters needs to lay off the crack.
