Once, Vincent Majestyk crashed through a jungle with an M-15 and a sack of grenades. Now he works under the open skies of the American Southwest, growing melons on his farm. But a strong-arming punk came to Majestyk's fields and set off a violent chain reaction that left Majestyk without a friend in the world - except for one tough, beautiful woman.
Heading to prison, Majestyk finds himself shackled beside a notorious Mafia hit man. And now a man who's been searching for peace and a man who's been looking for an angle are about to be set free by a violent breakout: making the farmer and the hit man each other's only hope - and worst possible enemy.
Mr. Majestyk is vintage Leonard, an edgy, dark, fiendishly compelling tale of a quiet man - making a whole lot of noise...
