RARA-AVIS: Elmore Leonard's Mr. Paradise

I just finished reading Elmore Leonard's _Mr. Paradise_, a Detroit procedural with the usual ingredientes (fast, snappy talk, colorful characters, chumps as bad guys, a cool hero). I did enjoy the cast of characters but, frankly, the plot is thin and the tension nonexistent. One of the weakest Leonard books I've read in a while. Surprisingly, this got a rave review by local writer Ann Beattie in the New York Times book review.
