In this superb short fiction collection, Elmore Leonard, "the
greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever" (New York
Times Book Review), once again illustrates how the line
between the law and the lawbreakers is not as firm as we might
think. In the title story, the basis for the hit FX series
Justified, U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens meets up with an old
friend, but they''re now on different sides of the law. Federal
marshal Karen Sisco, from Out of Sight, returns in "Karen
Makes Out," once again inadvertently mixing pleasure with business.
In "When the Women Come Out to Dance," Mrs. Mahmood gets more than
she bargains for when she conspires with her maid to end her
These nine stories are the great Elmore Leonard at his vivid,
hilarious, and unfailingly human best.
