Maximum Bob

This is Elmore Leonard at his best. Judge Maximum Bob Gibbs hands down tough sentences once too often and some of his customers would like a little revenge. Meanwhile, he has his eye on probation officer Kathy Baker, who wants to know where the Judge’a wife has gone and who put the alligator in his back yard.

The novel was spun into a summer replacement televison series several years ago. starring Beau Bridges. I don’t think the series did justice to Leonard’s characters, but it was still better than most shows.
