“Wicked and irresistible….Elmore Leonard is a literary genius.”

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.

Reviews

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.
