It is a story told primarily through dialogue and character development I thought it was great stuff but I caution that it is not for everyone Honey Deal is the real doll a femme fatale that thought it would be interesting to marry Walter Shoen a German butcher who sympathizes with the Nazis After a year of being bored silly by his German manners she walks out on him Five years later the war is in full swing and federal Marshal Carl Webster is hunting two Nazi POWs that escaped from a penitentiary in Oklahoma Carl is the real deal too an honest to godcowboy from the west who is intent on getting his man and who keeps his hands off the goods even when Honey turns around topless in an effort to make him Carl thinks Honey's ex husband is harboring the fugitives and enlists her help in talking to her ex The Nazis are a crazy group including Walter who believes he is Heinreich Himmler's twin separated at birth another one who thinks he wants to be a cowboy in a rodeo and of course the Romanian Countess who has a transvestite butler It is a crazy tale and once you get into it there's no turning back Leonard wrote this to be realistic and it has that feel You feel as if you are in war era Detroit and the characters are something else especially Honey Deal I recommend reading this one

For those of you with fondness for Detroit no that is not a joke The book is almost worth reading just for El Leonard's descriptions of WWII Detroit back when there were cornfields up on north Woodward to the zoo on Belle Isle to old the Hudsons Department Store for recommendation of other historic Detroit novels see end of this review For those of you who have yet to acuire a taste for Detroit the book is typical El Leonard imaginative characters you can see interesting dialogue and not much of a plot With El Leonard you have to get into the mood and feeling of the scene and the characters He sets the stage with intersting characters the Karl the Oklahoma US Marshall Honey the self assured sexy Kentucky transplant Walter whose life is built around his resmeblebce to Henrick Himmler to the escaped German POWs to a forgotten German spy ring including a transvestite and you just watch them interact There is not a great deal of rising action and the story climax may feel almost as an after thought but this like most of his novels the enjoyment is not as much in the resolution but just in the ride along the way If you like Up in Honey's Room recommend Loren D Estleman's historic crime novels about Detroit Thunder City turn of the Century Whiskey River ProhbitionJitterbug WWII era Edsel 1950sStress 1970sKing of the Corner 1980sLoren D Estelman does not have El Leonar's gift for characters and dialogue but he has great similies and his descriptions of Detriot are spot on Please let me know if you know of any other good Detroit authors

Up in Honey's RoomThe only couplings that interest Webster are the handcuffs that he'd like to snap onto the wrists of Hitler's American helpers El Leonard's unconventional crime novel has wrinkles than a bloodhou. Up in Honey's Room is El Leonard's follow up novel to The Hot Kid US Marshall Carlos Carl Webster is a little bit older but he's still got it It's 1944 and the Allied Forces are kicking Germany's ass Carl is state side rounding up criminals and occasionally AWOL German soldiers who may or not be German spies Some of them are just soldiers who don't agree with Hitler's National Socialist agenda and they want out Then there are the American citizens who agree with Hitler and want to do something to help the losing German side Walter Schoen is one of those American citizens He believes that he is Himmler's twin inexplicably separated at birth He decides to set into motion a plan to assassinate President Franklin D Roosevelt Not on Carl Webster's watch of course What ensues is a humorously convoluted story in which Webster must deal with assassination attempts on his own life the temptations of adultery and sorting out who's who among the real Nazis and the Nazi posers Leonard doesn't let up and the ending is one the funniest shootouts Leonard has ever written
