RAYLAN by Elmore Leonard

- Raylan Givens is one of the finest creations of Elmore Leonard’ Sunday Times

- ‘Elmore Leonard is the crime writer’s crime writer’ Ian Rankin

Whenever Federal Marshall Raylan Givens squares off against a known offender, he issues a warning: ‘If I have to pull my gun, I’ll shoot to kill.’ Except this time he finds the offender naked in a bathtub, doped up and missing his kidneys.

Raylan knows there’s big money in body parts, but by the time he finds out who’s making the cuts, he’s lying naked in a bathtub himself.

It turns out all the bad guys Raylan is after are girls this time. The nurse who sells kidneys for ten grand a piece. Carol Conlan, the mining executive who stops at nothing to get her own way. Jackie Nevada, a sexy high-stakes poker player on the run from the law.

The inspiration for the Emmy award-winning series, Justified, Raylan is vintage Elmore Leonard, packed with unexpected twists, fiery femmes fatale and the most vibrant, crackling dialogue currently available in the English language.
