My choice this week is Mr Majestyk by Elmore Leonard a short but punchy read that’ll hold your attention for the full 150 pages.
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
“Once, Vincent Majestyk crashed through a jungle with an M-15 and a sack of grenades. Now he works under the open skies of the American Southwest, growing melons on his farm. But a strong-arming punk came to Majestyk’s fields and set off a violent chain reaction that left Majestyk without a friend in the world except for one tough, beautiful woman.
Heading to prison, Majestyk finds himself shackled beside a notorious Mafia hit man. And now a man who’s been searching for peace and a man who’s been looking for an angle are about to be set free by a violent breakout: making the farmer and the hit man each other’s only hope and worst possible enemy.
