Last Elmore Leonard Novel Likely
This is bittersweet. There’s likely one moreElmore Leonard novel on the way after the author died last week at the age of 87. His son, Peter Leonard, also a writer, said he hopes to finish his father’s 46th novel, which has the working title of Blue Dreams. “[It’s] been discussed among family members and I’ve talked to Greg Sutter, Elmore’s longtime researcher,” the younger Leonard said—although he admitted he doesn’t know how many pages have been written. The book reportedly will feature Leonard’s popular federal marshal, Raylan Givens, as well as a rogue Immigration and Customs agent.
