“Elmore Leonard can write circles around almost anybody active in the crime novel today.”
New York Times Book Review

With more than forty novels to his credit and still going strong, the legendary Elmore Leonard has well earned the title, “America’s greatest crime writer” (Newsweek). And U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Pronto, Riding the Rap, Fire in the Hole) is one of Leonard’s most popular creations, thanks in part to the phenomenal success of the hit TV series “Justified.” Leonard’s Raylan shines a spotlight once again on the dedicated, if somewhat trigger-happy lawman, this time in his familiar but not particularly cozy milieu of Harlan County, Kentucky, where the drug dealing Crowe brothers are branching out into the human body parts business. Suspenseful, darkly wry and riveting, and crackling with Leonard’s trademark electric dialogue, Raylan is prime Grand Master Leonard as you have always loved him and always will.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just as fun as watching an episode of Justified I was interested in the TV series Justified when finding out it was based on an Elmore Leonard story, then finding out he wrote another story based on Raylan, I could not resist buying it. Excellent book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fully Justified I enjoy the TV series and was pleased to find it is fairly true to the book. A person wants to meet Raylan by the end of new book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Raylan A good friend told me about Elmore Leonard, and I've read two of his books. The dialogue he creates is excellent. He brings melodrama to life in a really artistic way. I love the guy's work!

Editorial Reviews

“There is no greater writer of crime fiction than Elmore Leonard, and no one who has more resplendent energy. . . . Like pretty well every Leonard novel, Raylan is a delight.”
