Riding the Rap

by Elmore Leonard

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.
