Son of Elmore

First Deal for a New Leonard - 4/27/2007 - Publishers Weekly: "Elmore Leonard’s son Peter Leonard has made a deal for his first novel, titled Quiver, with Peter Wolverton at Thomas Dunne/St. Martin’s Minotaur, via Jeffrey Posternak at the Wylie Agency. This crime caper is set in and around the Leonard family’s home turf of Detroit and centers on a recent widow struggling with her teenage son when her first love, an ex-con, reappears. The elder Leonard, who was reportedly unimpressed with a short story his son wrote in college, has enthusiastically endorsed this new literary effort. No pub date yet.
