World-class gentleman felon Jack Foley is busting out of Florida's Glades Prison when he runs head on into a shotgun-wielding Karen Sisco. Suddenly, he's sharing a cramped car trunk with the classy, disarmed federal marshal, and the chemistry is working overtime - and as soon as she escapes, he's already missing her. But there are bad men and a major score waiting for Jack in Motown. And the next time his path crosses Karen's, chances are she's going to be there for business, not pleasure.

Absolutely classic Leonard: as good as it gets.

Classic Elmore Leonard, Fantastic Characters
Out of Sight would be close to the top of my list.
This book was somewhat similar to other crime books that are character based, such as Mystic River. And of course very much in Leonard's signature style in books such as Killshot.
Many of Leonard's characters are very authentic and relatable, but surprisingly complex. Jack Foley is great as the consummate criminal, a bank robber, yet one somehow with class and grace on his own terms. He doesn't care for the crass crimes of some of the other criminals he falls in with.
Karen Sisco is a great character too. She plays by her own rules and has a great way of asking forgiveness rather than permission. Fatally flawed, yet a very effective agent.
