“Mr Paradise” by Elmore leonard

Mr Paradise

Mr Paradise

Mr.Paradise gets his kicks from watching reruns of Michigan’s best football games, while having his much younger girlfriend, Chloe, play cheerleader (a girlfriend costing him five grand a week). One evening he is enjoying this entertainment when two hit men enter killing Mr Paradise and Chloe, whilst upstairs Montez, an ex-con, who is Mr P’s servant is supposed to be enjoying the delights of Chloe’s model housemate, Kelly. Montez is sore about being cut out of Mr. Paradise’s will and set up the hit. The bad guys aren’t the brightest sparks and end up hiding out in the house which is also the crime scene. The dialogue is sharp but the plot is a little weak, no great mystery or plot twists.

About jimholroyd365

Hi, my name is Jim, I am an Englishman living in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi. I started this blog to share my interests, my photos and to make sense of my world. I take a lot of photographs of various subjects, some of which I intend to share here. I collect diecast cars and get the same thrill at 50 as I did when I was 8, when I find a car I'm searching for, Don't worry, I have a separate blog for this hobby. Please feel free to comment and ask questions on what I blog. I am quite new to this blogging, I was inspired by reading a book, which began as a blog of a London Ambulance Driver: "Blood, Sweat and Tea". I hope my blog will be entertaining and amusing, I did try stand up comedy in the UK and had seven gigs before I left to teach English in Georgia. I love reading and so the blog will include book reviews of books as I finish them.I don't know about which direction this blog will go, I am a great believer in serendipity...let the journey begin...
