The Moonshine War by Elmore Leonard

The Moonshine War by Elmore Leonard is a period piece about Southern bootleggers in the 1930s. The main character recently of the Army engineers is continuing his father's bootlegging business. His father put away some alcohol to age as an "insurance policy". Naturally others want it to. Particularly a former buddy from the army now working as a prohibition agent. There are plots and counterplots. Everyone has an agenda.

This is one of Leonard's earlier novels originally published in 1969. He hadn't completely hit his stride yet. Still a nice diversion.


Is available through Abebooks.
