The Hot Kid

Shoot-out

Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 FMLatest broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 Extra

Louly Brown tells of how her letters to Pretty Boy Floyd in prison led to her stealing her step-father's car and running away from home with a bank robber, before meeting the handsome Deputy Marshal Carl Webster at a fatal motel shoot-out.

Meanwhile, Jack Belmont's illegal moonshine operation is threatened when his roadhouse is attacked by members of the Klan.

Elmore Leonard's enthralling criminal odyssey is set against the dusty, sepia-toned backdrop of Oklahoma and Kansas during America's Great Depression.
