“Wicked and irresistible….Elmore Leonard is a literary genius.”
New York Times Book Review

Before U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens began electrifying TV viewers across America (in the hit series Justified), he “starred” in Elmore Leonard’s Riding the Rap—an explosive, twisty tale of a brazen Florida kidnap caper gone outrageously wrong. Chock full of wildly eccentric and deliciously criminal characters—including a psycho enforcer with a green thumb, a Bahamian bad man, and the beautiful, unabashedly greedy psychic Reverend Dawn—Riding the Rap dazzles with Leonard’s trademark ingenious plot turns and razor-keen dialogue. Gripping, surprising, and unforgettable, it is a crime fiction gem that any thriller writer—from past masters John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, and James M. Cain to the bestselling mystery auteurs of today—would be thrilled to call his own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adjusting to the changes The changes between the TV show Justified and Elmore's novels bother me less as I move my way through the series. The cast of characters in this book are largely the same as the previous with a few new baddies sprinkled in. The writing style has a flow that keeps you turning the pages as you barrel your way through this second US Marshall adventure.
