Riding the Rap

Elmore Leonard: Riding the Rap (USA 2012)

From the Publisher:
Before U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens began electrifying TV viewers across America (in the hit series Justified), he "starred" in Elmore Leonard's Riding the Rap -- an explosive, twisty tale of a brazen Florida kidnap caper gone outrageously wrong. Chock full of wildly eccentric and deliciously criminal characters -- including a psycho enforcer with a green thumb, a Bahamian bad man, and the beautiful, unabashedly greedy psychic Reverend Dawn -- Riding the Rap dazzles with Leonard's trademark ingenious plot turns and razor-keen dialogue. Gripping, surprising, and unforgettable, it is a crime fiction gem that any thriller writer -- from past masters John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, and James M. Cain to the bestselling mystery auteurs of today -- would be thrilled to call his own.

Elmore Leonard: Riding the Rap. William Morrow Paperbacks, ISBN: 9780062122476 (January, 2012), 368 p., $14.99.

The BIG trouble is ace manhunter U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens is sleeping with Harry's ex-exotic dancer ex-girlfriend, and Joyce wants Harry found.

Riding the Rap

Elmore Leonard: Riding the Rap (USA 1995)

From the Publisher:
It seemed like a brilliant idea. Three mismatched bad guys -- a Palm Beach potted, a Bahamian ex-con, and a Puerto Rican gardener turned mob enforcer -- get together to carry out the perfect crime: kidnap retired Miami bookie Harry Arno and let him pay the ransom with his ill-gotten wealth. He can't go to the cops later. No one will miss him. It's perfect. Or so they figure.

They figure wrong. Harry's former girlfriend, ex-topless dancer Joyce Patton, misses him a lot. Now she's sending her current boyfriend, Stetson-hatted federal marshal Raylan Givens, looking for Harry. And Raylan always gets his man. And in this case, he also gets his woman -- the last person to see Harry, a sexy psychic named Dawn. Dawn may be clairvoyant, or she may be in on the kidnapping. Either way, she gives Raylan a lead, and he's hunting on Florida's 24-karat Gold Coast for three loco hombres... and trying to bring Harry back alive...

Elmore Leonard: Riding the Rap. Delacorte Press, ISBN: 0385308477 (September, 1995), 294 p., $22.95.
