A middle-aged woman finds herself in the middle of a huge conflict that will either make her a profit or cost her life.
Louis and Ordell first appeared in the Elmore Leonard novel The Switch. At age fifteen, Quentin Tarantino was arrested for shoplifting this book, his one brush with "real" crime. In The Switch, Louis and Ordell kidnap a millionaire's wife, only to discover he doesn't want her back, a plot that was used in Ruthless People (1986). In the novel's sequel, Rum Punch, Louis and Ordell complain that the movie producers stole their idea (without mentioning the movie by name).
