Summaries and Reviews
Summary
Chile Palmer, a Miami loanshark, and Harry Zimm, a film producer in debt, become reluctant partners as they become embroiled in the seductive but deadly Hollywood scene
Amazon.com description: Product Description: In a novel filled with his signatures -- nerve-shattering suspense, crackling dialogue, scathing wit -- Elmore Leonard proves once again why he sets the standard against which all other crime novels are measured.  In Get Shorty, he takes a mobster to Hollywood, where the women are gorgeous, the men are corrupt, and making it big isn't all that different from making your bones:  you gotta know who to pitch, who to hit, and how to knock 'em dead.

Get Shorty is now a major motion picture directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and starring John Travolta, Gene Hackman, RenÚ Russo and Danny DeVito.
