The Moonshine War

by Elmore Leonard

The great Elmore Leonard takes readers back to Prohibition days in the back hills of Kentucky in a rollicking story of guns, greed, and illegally brewed corn liquor.

The Moonshine War is a tale of the chaos that ensues when a gang of city slickers sets out to steal thousands of dollars-worth of homemade whiskey from a hell-raising country boy--who is anything but the easy mark they were expecting.

A rediscovered Elmore Leonard classic, The Moonshine War is a wild ride bursting with the author's hallmark delights: the twisty plot, the gripping suspense, the wit and, of course, the razor-sharp dialogue.
