Get Shorty (Paperback)
Mob-connected loan shark Chili Palmer is sick of the Miami grind plus his friends have a bad habit of dying there. So when he chases a deadbeat client out to Hollywood, Chili figures he might like to stay. This town, with its dream-makers, glitter, hucksters, and liars plus gorgeous, partially clad would-be starlets everywhere you look seems ideal for an enterprising criminal with a taste for the cinematic. Besides, Chili's got an idea for a killer movie, though it could very possibly kill him to get it made.
