"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. Harry was planning to retire to Italy someday anyway, so he 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' whacks Arno just for fun. It's a 'pride thing' ... and it might even put Raylan in good stead with Harry's sexy ex-stripper girlfriend Joyce."--Page 4 of cover.

Remember in college when faced with writing another 10 page paper you realized just how dirty your toilet and base boards really were? How about later in life when writing your ex an email so you change the quote below your signature to Positively 4th Street by Bob Dylan? "Yes I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes. You'd know what a drag it is to see you." Well that's how this novel made me feel. It was my least favorite Elmore Leonard piece, and I started and finished six other books since this one began. It's too bad seeing as how Justified is such a good tv show.

Fans of FX's "Justified" will enjoy this as it features Marshall Raylan Givens.

Fantastic book by an amazing writer. Not as flashy and corny as the TV show.

The writing in the TV show is much better.
