In this collection of new and recently published short fiction, Elmore Leonard demonstrates the superb characterizations, dead-on dialogue, vivid atmosphere, and driving plotting that have made him a household name. And once more this master of crime illustrates that the line between the law and the lawbreakers is not as firm as we might think.

Federal marshal Karen Sisco, from the best-selling novel Out of Sight, returns in Karen Makes Out, once again inadvertently mixing pleasure with business. In Fire in the Hole, Raylan Givens, last seen in Riding the Rap and Pronto, meets up with an old friend, but they're now on different sides of the law. In the title story, When the Women Come Out to Dance, Mrs. Mahmood gets more than she bargains for when she conspires with her maid to end her unhappy marriage. In all nine stories, each unique in their own right, reluctant heroes and laid-back lowlifes struggle for power, survival, and their fifteen minutes of fame.

Vivid, hilarious, and unfailingly human, these stories ring true with Elmore Leonard's signature deadpan social observations and diabolical eye for the foibles of the good guys and the bad. Download and start listening now!

    " If you like the TV show justified you'll enjoy this short work as it is essentially the pilot of the show. It's short but fun if your a fan. I was able to read the entire book in about 1.5 hours. Don't expect anything new or amazing, it only varies from the pilot in a couple minor details but still it's a great concept and a fun quick read, perfect for a car/plane ride. "

    " I enjoyed the pace of these stories and the unusual plots that were just normal life yet bigger than life at the same time. Seemed to be a different style for this author and I hope he writes more like these fine stories. "

    " "Fire In the Hole" is superb! A wild ride for a such a short story! "

    " I'll be honest, my review is basically for the title story. I've gotten into the show "Justified" recently, and was curious to see how accurate a depiction it was of the short story on which it was based. The answer? Incredibly accurate, right down to most of the dialogue. A very good read, and I'll definitely be checking out some of Leonard's other Raylan Givens stories "
