While the literary and TV world mourned the loss of Elmore Leonard last week, BBC Radio’s “Broadcasting House” found out that the late writer’s son Peter Leonard “hopes to complete his father’s last novel.” During the interview, the younger Leonard, a writer himself, said of the issue: “[It’s] been discussed among family members and I’ve talked to Greg Sutter, Elmore’s longtime researcher.” While Leonard doesn’t know how many pages his father has already written, Blue Dreams (the book’s working title) is meant to “feature a rogue Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent, bull riding and Mr. Leonard’s popular federal marshal character, Raylan Givens,” according to the New York Times.
