Charlie Martz and Other Stories : The Unpublished Stories of Elmore Leonard Hardback
When Elmore Leonard died in 2013, he left behind a 60-year legacy of crime novels, many of which have become modern classics.
He also left behind a treasure trove of unpublished early stories.
Largely written during his years as a copywriter at a Detroit advertising agency, these stories find Leonard exploring far-flung locations, from the bars of small-town New Mexico to a military base in Kuala Lumpur.
They also introduce us to unforgettable Leonard characters, some of whom - like ageing lawman Charlie Martz and former matador Eladio Montoya - star in his other works but were born in these pages.
Whether embodying an extra on a movie set in Spain or a desperate man out for vengeance in Detroit, these stories are endlessly entertaining - revealing a master who honed his craft from a young age, and reminding us why Leonard is so sorely missed.
