by Elmore Leonard

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | January 3, 2012 | Trade Paperback

Pronto: A Novel is rated 3 out of 5 by 1.

The feds want Miami bookmaker Harry Arno to squeal on his wiseguy boss. So they''re putting word out on the street that Arno''s skimming profits from "Jimmy Cap" Capotorto-which he is, but everybody does it. Harry was planning to retire to Italy someday anyway, so he figures now''s a good time to get lost. U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens knows Harry''s tricky-the bookie ditched him once in an airport while in the marshal''s custody-but not careful. So Raylan''s determined to find the fugitive''s Italian hideaway before cold-blooded Sicilian "Zip" whacks Arno just for fun. It''s a "pride thing" . . . and it might even put Raylan in good stead with Harry''s sexy ex-stripper girlfriend Joyce.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Books and TV Movies based on books often fall short. More so because I generally read the book first and get let down when the movie does not come out the way I imagined. Here is a situation that is reversed for me. My first experience with the characters in Pronto came through the TV show Justified. This is a tremendous show that deserves a much larger audience. As I read this book after a few season of the show, the differences between the show and book are glaring. Raylan's relationship with his ex etc are all so different that at times it seems distracting. Had I read the book first, the TV show changes may have bothered me but in this case with first experience being TV, the book seems to have let me down a bit. Still a good read, though fairly short, wondering how the third book in the series will read as it came out after the show.
