2011, for me, has been the year of Elmore Leonard. Prior to the new year, I had not read any of his highly praised works and Riding the Rap would be the fourth novel of his that I've read. Riding the Rap is the second novel to feature Raylan Givens, the U.S. Marshal from the excellent FX Series Justified. Viewers of the show will notice that the episode "The Fixer" is an adaptation of this novel. And while the episode is a great episode, because the book has so much more details, and characters, the fun is doubled. Leonard writes such great dialogue that is fun to just say out loud while you're reading it. Everything is great in yet another amazing piece by Elmore Leonard.

Good story but a publishing rip-off.

Leonard is one of my favorite storytellers and this one is no exception, but "short story" would be a more accurate description. Over 60 pages of this 251 page e-book version are filled with hype about other Leonard works. The actual story fills pages 5 through 192 and ...
Leonard is one of my favorite storytellers and this one is no exception, but "short story" would be a more accurate description. Over 60 pages of this 251 page e-book version are filled with hype about other Leonard works. The actual story fills pages 5 through 192 and the term "fills" is used loosely. Much of the dialogue is presented in short, double-spaced sentences.
