Books: Sleaze Factors Glitz by Elmore Leonard

by Elmore Leonard; Arbor House; 251 pages; $14.95

Police Lieut. Vincent Mora has just slipped between the sheets with Casino Singer Linda Moon when he hears a click at the door of his Atlantic City hotel room. With the barrel of his gun, he scoops up his Jockey shorts, pulls them on and is ready to meet the intruder. Wild shots are fired. The would-be killer escapes into the street with a chilly Mora in vain pursuit. On his way back to Miss Moon, he meets a drunk who gives him some sporting advice: "You should a bet your underwear. You never know when your luck'll change."
