Vincent Mora just can't win. He's been shot, his girlfriend is about to be tossed off a balcony, and there's a vengeful creep looking to even a twisted score. Set against the tacky glitter of Atlantic City's billion-dollar casinos, Glitz has all the classic Leonard touches: quirky characters, colorful and cinematic scenes, and dialogue that's, well, to die for.

Psycho mama's boy Teddy Magyk has a serious jones for the Miami cop who put him away for raping a senior citizen -- but he wants to hit Vincent Mora where it really hurts before killing him. So when a beautiful Puerto Rican hooker takes a swan dive from an Atlantic City high-rise and Vincent naturally shows up to investigate the questionable death of his "special friend," Teddy figures he's got his prey just where he wants him. But the A.C. dazzle is blinding the Magic Man to a couple of very hard truths: Vincent Mora doesn't forgive and forget ... and he doesn't die easy.About the Author:
