Book: Pronto

 Book: Pronto

Author: Elmore Leonard

Pages: 400

This is my 11th book of the year

This is the story of Raylan Givens.  Raylan is an US Marshall and he is off to Italy to chase a bookie who is hiding from the Miami mob.  Harry - who was planning to retire to Italy some day decides now is the time - has escaped Raylan's grasp once before.  Raylan knows Harry is tricky, but not careful.  Raylan knows he must find Harry before the mob does.

This was a boring book.  I was disappointed because I love Justified.  After watching the newest season, I went on the hunt for the books about Raylan Givens.  What I have discovered is this is not the book that the show is based on.  And that show is loosely based on just one book in the Raylan Givens series.  Wish I would have known that before I listened to this because this was a rambling, boring story that was more like a story you tell in a barber's chair than a crime fiction novel.

I might hunt out the one that is based on the show to see if it is any better.
