Elmore Leonard - Pagan Babies (2nd Hand Hardback).
Pagan Babies is classic crime fiction from the master of suspense, New York Times bestselling author Elmore Leonard.
Father Terry Dunn thought he'd seen everything on the mean streets of Detroit, but that was before he went on a little retreat to Rwanda to evade a tax-fraud indictment. Now the whiskey-drinking, Nine Inch Nails T-shirt-wearing padre is back trying to hustle up a score to help the orphans of Rwanda. But the fund-raising gets complicated when a former tattletale cohort pops up on Terry's tail. And then there's the lovely Debbie Dewey. A freshly sprung ex-con turned stand-up comic, Debbie needs some fast cash, too, to settle an old score.
Now they're in together for a bigger payoff than either could finagle alone. After all, it makes sense . . . unless Father Terry is working a con of his own.

"Leonard possessed an unparalleled grasp of the dialog patterns between fools, felons, nutbags, cops and some of the most entertaining characters of our generation. We are entitled to miss him. A lot." - Abe Books.
"A vintage roller-coaster ride from the hottest thriller writer in the US' - Time Magazine.
"Without a doubt, Elmore Leonard is not only one of the most accomplished authors around, he's inarguably the coolest. Dubbed "the greatest crime author of our time, perhaps ever!" by the notoriously hard-to-please New York Times - Goodreads.
"Elmore Leonard is one of our finest humourists, especially when he is not trying to be funny. The humour lies in his wickedly acute depictions of human nature." - NY Times.
Elmore John Leonard Jr. was an American novelist, short story writer, and screenwriter. His earliest novels, published in the 1950's, were Westerns, but he went on to specialize in crime fiction and suspense thrillers, many of which have been adapted into motion pictures.
