Books by Elmore Leonard. But you have no power, so you don’t stop us. Listen, if we see you when we come, a tall one like you, we cut your feet off, too.

Pagan Babies is classic crime fiction from the master of suspense, New York Times bestselling author Elmore Leonard. Father Terry Dunn thought he'd seen everything on the mean streets of Detroit.
Pagan Babies is Elmore Leonard in peak form. The author is a master at crafting compelling characters whose healthy desires or criminal pathology reveal themselves not through purple prose, but through beautifully crafted dialogue. This more than any of his other Elmore Leonard novel I've read so far also introduces reversals and surprises that feel completely organic to the characters, rather than an author shoehorning his characters into doing pulp fiction plots.

Even with this tragic background of Rwanda Pagan Babies comes off as Leonard's funniest straight-faced novel to date. In Rwanda during the genocide, Hutu thugs storm into a church and kill everyone except Father Terry Dunn, on the alter saying his first mass. He's powerless to do anything about it-until one day he faces several of the killers and exacts a chilling penance.
Read various fiction books with us in our e-reader. Not far into our future, the dazzling technology that runs our world turns against us. Controlled by a childlike-yet massively powerful-artificial intelligence known as Archos, the global network of machines on which our world has grown dependent suddenly becomes an implacable, deadly foe. At Zero Hour-the moment the robots attack-the human race is almost annihilated, but as its scattered remnants regroup, humanity for the first time unites in a determined effort to fight back. Father Terry Dunn thought he'd seen everything on the mean streets of Detroit, but that was before he went on a little retreat to Rwanda to evade a tax-fraud indictment. Now the whiskey-drinking, Nine Inch Nails T-shirt-wearing padre is back trying to hustle up a score to help the little orphans of Rwanda.
Now they came to us with machetes and clubs spiked with nails, masus, and no one could believe they were going to kill us standing as we were in the forest, away from the road. People began to scream and plead for their lives, mothers trying to shield their children. The Hums were also screaming, and laughing, too, in a state of excitement as they began to hack with their machetes like we were stalks of bananas.
