Mobster turned Hollywood producer Chili Palmer has got another idea for a movie. This time he's checking out L.A.'s other big business, the music industry: a world full of wannabe stars, run by crooks and hustlers - it's got plenty of potential. Chili's found his characters, trouble is, now he needs the plot. In an industry where every two-bit punk will do anything to be a big shot, the story should take care of itself - with a little help from Chili, that is. 'Dialogue like broken glass, sharp and glittering, and a raft of low-life's individualized in primary colours like hard-edged pop-art ... Leonard at his best? I think so' Julian Rathbone Independent 'An intricate, laid-back, black comedy, more bizarre than any movie Chili could make. Gotta be a hit' Frances Fyfield, Sunday Express 'Like no one else in the business, Elmore Leonard tells his readers a story. Be Cool is almost 90 pc dialogue, and Leonard's ear is as good as ever' Ian Rankin, Daily Mail
