About the Book
U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens is one of Leonard's most popular creations, thanks in part to the phenomenal success of the hit TV series "Justified." This time in his familiar milieu of Harlan County, Kentucky, Raylan must handle the drug dealing Crowe brothers and their new business: human body parts.
From the Publisher
When Dickie and Coover Crowe, dope-dealing brothers known for sampling their own supply, decide to branch out into the body business, it''s up to U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens to stop them. But Raylan isn''t your average marshal; he''s the laconic, Stetson-wearing, fast-drawing lawman who juggles dozens of cases at a time and always shoots to kill. But by the time Raylan finds out who''s making the cuts, he''s lying naked in a bathtub, with Layla, the cool transplant nurse, about to go for his kidneys.
