The Odd Thingabout Walter Schoen, German born but now running a butcher shop in Detroit, he's a dead ringer for Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS and the Gestapo. Honey Deal, Walter's American wife, doesn't know that Walter is a member of a spy ring and gives shelter to escaped German POWs. But she's tired of telling him jokes he doesn't understand--it's time for a divorce.

Along comes Carl Webster, the Hot Kid of the Marshals Service. He's looking for Jurgen Schrenk. Carl's pretty sure Walter's involved with keeping Schrenk hidden so he gets to know Honey, hoping she'll lead him to Walter. Honey likes the hot kid marshal and doesn't much care that he's married. But all Carl wants is to get Jurgen without getting shot. Next, Carl meets Vera Mezwa, the Ukrainian head of the spy ring, and her lover Bohdan, with a sly way of killing. And then there's Otto--the Waffen-SS major who runs away with a nice Jewish girl. It's Elmore Leonard's world--gritty, funny, and full of surprises.

Interesting characters and story. Enough humor to keep it fresh.

Great story, and the guy who read it was excellent!

While Elmore Leanard is an outstanding author, he should stay away from writing sympathetic sounding Nazi, KKK novels. I absolutely hated this novel. 0 of 10 stars for not one redeeming moment in this lousy story.
