Top U.S. marshal Carl Webster and Honey Deal, a department store associate with a penchant for toying with men and (to that end) walking around topless, team up in an investigation of a Nazi spy ring in early 1940s Detroit.
While the dialogue was not-at-all sleepy and the storyline was always unexpected, the narrative became so ... preposterous ... that by the end my willing suspension of disbelief was simply exhausted.
I suppose if you are a fan of Leonard's "Cuba Libre" and "The Hot Kid" - some of the characters of which are continued her - you'll be similarly entertained by "Up in Honey's Room." I recommend the audio version so you can at least hear all that crazy dialogue.
