    Fun read

    Bought for $3.99 on the Kindle app. What in the world with the high cost on nook? The 2nd book, riding the rap, is also cheaper on Kindle, though not that big of a difference. This book grabs you quickly, keeps you entertained, is easy to read, and is really just fun. Leonard is a great writer as the reviews say. I wasnt disappointed.

    Pronto is the book that introduces Raylan Givens from the TV ser

    Pronto is the book that introduces Raylan Givens from the TV series, Justified.  It's a great mob versus the 'good guy' story.  Raylan tends to do everything 'his way' and on his own moral judgments.  When a bookie, Harry, is set -up by the Feds to draw in more bad guys, Raylan decides that 'fair is not fair' here.  Raylan goes off to Italy to 'bring back' the bookie, and to save him from a mob hit.




    The character descriptions are marvelous, and Raylan's 'biography' is apply drawn throughout the story as he gets to know Harry's girlfriend---soon to be Raylan's girlfriend.  The bad guys range from those looking for any little excuse to kill people, to the big talkers who wimp out when the action calls for gunfire.




    Scenes in Italy are interspersed with stories of the poet, Ezra Pound.  Beauty for one person becomes boredom and confusion for others.  Like all great 'bad versus good' hero stories, the good guys win in the end!!  If you like the TV series, this is a must read for you!!!
