Fans of US Marshal Raylan Givens of the hit television series Justified are in for a major treat. The unstoppable manhunter with the very itchy trigger finger stars in Pronto, a crime fiction gem from the one and only Elmore Leonard.

The feds want Miami bookmaker Harry Arno to squeal on his wiseguy boss. So they’re putting word out on the street that Arno’s skimming profits from “Jimmy Cap” Capotorto—which he is, but everybody does it. He was planning to retire to Italy someday anyway, so Harry figures now’s a good time to get lost. US Marshal Raylan Givens knows Harry’s tricky—the bookie ditched him once in an airport while in the marshal’s custody—but not careful. So Raylan’s determined to find the fugitive’s Italian hideaway before a cold-blooded Sicilian “Zip” does and whacks Arno for fun. After all, it’s a “pride thing” … and it might even put Raylan in good stead with Harry’s sexy ex-stripper girlfriend Joyce.

    " Before reading Pronto, the only Leonard I had read was his '10 Rules of Writing'. It was interesting to read the book with his rules in mind, which I think can be summed up in a single commandment: author, get out of the way. And he does. He really does. Anyway, quite a fun read. "

    " It's Elmore Leonard, what more is there to say. You either like him or you dont. "

    " I'm not a crime fiction book fan, but I decided to read this because it was about Raylan Givens. It was ok; it wasn't a great book by any stretch. There's good dialogue and good characterization, but that's about where I'd leave it; there's nothing magnetic about it otherwise. "
