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.

"Leonard's Stetson-wearing U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens has been demoted to rural Kentucky, but that dusn't reduce the killing and excitement that always seem to swirl around him. Narrator Brian D'Arcy James expertly voices a broad range of characters. While the listener has some difficulty in discriminating between blacks and whites (especially females) in the Southern drawls, it's a minor problem. James also enhances Leonard's famously pithy dialogue with perfect pacing and timing. The TV series "Justified" is based on the Raylan Givens character. M.C. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
