Publisher's Summary

Quintessential Elmore Leonard, Split Images stars Palm Beach playboy Robbie Daniels. He's the kind of guy who gets away with everything - even murder - until a vacationing Motown cop, Bryan Hurd, starts asking questions. When this millionaire reptile reveals the psychopath beneath his slippery skin, Hurd finds out this is one helluva way for an out-of-town lawman to spend his vacation.

Couldn't finish it

I love Elmore Leonard. I've read most of his non-westerns. I also usually like George Guidall (He is excellent in the Walt Longmire books. Also liked his narration of the "hot kid" series from Leonard). However here he is just, well, boring and annoying. He is not, imho, the right narrator for Leonard's urban novels. If only with the incomparable Frank Muller had recorded *everything* Leonard wrote.

One of his Worst

How my most admired longtime authors could come up with this story with boring repetitive dialogue , wooden characters, and miserable plot I don’t know. I don’t think Elmore Leonard wrote this

Elmore stumbles on this one

Big Elmore Leonard fan, but this is one of the few times that he doesn't get the job going. Let alone done. It's like he';s working on it, rough draft and forgets to call in an editor Slow moving
Move on to any of Elmores, Rayland, US Marshal novels for a better listen Sorry Elmore, cause you're da man!

Classic Elmore Leonard

Split between Detroit and Florida, like so many of the best of his works, this modern noir captures the gritty street cop/cowboy hero that is Leonard's trademark. The story is tight and full of twists, the writing is terrific, and Guidall's performance is spot on -- world weary but strong, with subtle but distinctive accents for the characters. This book is a winner.
