Elmore Leonard

Not exactly "literature" but well-known for his work in advancing the crime genre. I've only read Get Shorty and enjoyed it. Any thoughts on him?
In Soviet Russia, television watches you.

I recently read his Unknown Man #89 and enjoyed it a lot. He's good at economically describing really nasty people and their schemes.
