By Elmore Leonard

“Wicked and irresistible….Elmore Leonard is a literary genius.”
New York instances booklet Review

Before U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens all started electrifying television audience throughout the United States (in the hit sequence Justified), he “starred” in Elmore Leonard’s Riding the Rap—an explosive, twisty story of a brazen Florida kidnap caper long past outrageously unsuitable. Chock filled with wildly eccentric and deliciously felony characters—including a psycho enforcer with a eco-friendly thumb, a Bahamian undesirable guy, and the gorgeous, unabashedly grasping psychic Reverend Dawn—Riding the Rap dazzles with Leonard’s trademark inventive plot turns and razor-keen discussion. Gripping, remarkable, and unforgettable, it's a crime fiction gem that any mystery writer—from previous masters John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, and James M. Cain to the bestselling secret auteurs of today—would be delighted to name his own.
