All He Saw Was the Girl (Paperback)Peter Leonard (author)

- Not available
Rome: McCabe and Chip, two American exchange students, are about to become embroiled with a violent street gang, a beautiful Italian girl and a flawed kidnapping plan. Detroit: Sharon Vanelli's affair with Joey Palermo, a Mafia enforcer, is about to be discovered by her husband, Ray, a secret service agent. Brilliantly plotted and shot through with wry humour, "All He Saw Was the Girl" takes place as these two narratives converge in the backstreets of Italy's oldest city. A thrilling ride, it once again displays Peter Leonard's genius for exploring the wrong turns that life can take. Peter Leonard's growing fan base includes greats such as Carl Hiaasen ('great storytelling') and Michael Connelly ('clever plotting and blood and guts characters'), and publications as diverse as "Uncut" ('sensational'), the "Daily Mirror" ('stunning') and the "Big Issue" ('brilliantly snappy').
