The Detroit News reports that novelist and master storyteller Elmore Leonard has died.

Leonard’s brilliant body of stories includes mysteries and westerns. He is, arguably, the greatest dialog writer in the history of the whodunit. And his characters were unforgettable.

Much like the man himself.
