Thank god there are enough sane crime fiction fans who have elevated Elmore to the position at the top that he deserves. Chili Palmer is a fascinating character to read and a worthy lead, and everything really works well with the pace pulled off perfectly. I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt because I'm sure if I hadn't seen the movie already, I would've enjoyed the novel a bit more, and it's Elmore Leonard. Chances are that not much could be added to what has already been said about the work of Elmore Leonard. Like many of Leonard’s novels Get Shorty has been adapted into a film and I decided that it would be a good idea to read the book before watching an adaption, unlike the case with the Raylan Givens novels, as to which I saw Justified first, and when I inevitably get around to reading the novel that inspired Tarantino’s Jackie Brown, it will be a similar story.

The dialogue is excellent and Leonard really has a way of creating colourful characters that are even better than an already good plot. Besides, Chili’s got an idea for a killer movie, though it could very possibly kill him to get it made.Chili said to him, 'I guess I better tell you about my coat getting ripped off and this guy named Ray Bones I shot one time and wants to pay me back. Chili Palmer is a terrific character and would love to see him show up in other stories, though Elmore did bring him back in Be Cool. A., but as played by the late, great Dennis Farina in the film, is more of a loose string in the book. As the lure of Tinseltown’s dream-makers and gorgeous wannabe starlets becomes increasingly hard to resist, Chili gets caught up in murder,revenge and romance.

The limo guys have stashed one-hundred seventy five thousand in an airport locker that the DEA is watching, but after Catlett shoots a Colombian mule who refuses to accept this as payment for cocaine Catlett bought, there aren't any consequences.

He’s got a problem in that even though he’s part-Italian he can never become as well-off as the other full-Italians in the organization, because he also has some Peurto Rican blood in him which naturally means that he’s looked down upon.
