Publisher's Summary

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.
U.S. 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.

Great character, even better dialogue!

It's not hard to hard to be swept away by any of Elmore Leonard's characters in his books, and Raylan is one of his best. Rayland exemplifies the very best of an old west sheriff in a modern day world serving in the U.S. Marshall's service. Loaded with characters and dialogue that you will not soon forget. It is not hard to understand why so many of Elmore's books and characters make it to the big screen and television; they are just plain and simple entertainment. Enjoy this listen!

Fun Listen

This book is a fun listen. Not quite the Raylan Givens that you know from Justified, but close. Snappy dialogue and great characters.
