In this superb short fiction collection, Elmore Leonard, “the greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever” (New York Times Book Review), once again illustrates how the line between the law and the lawbreakers is not as firm as we might think. In the title story, the basis for the hit FX series Justified, U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens meets up with an old friend, but they’re now on different sides of the law. Federal marshal Karen Sisco, from Out of Sight, returns in “Karen Makes Out,” once again inadvertently mixing pleasure with business. In “When the Women Come Out to Dance,” Mrs. Mahmood gets more than she bargains for when she conspires with her maid to end her unhappy marriage.
These nine stories are the great Elmore Leonard at his vivid, hilarious, and unfailingly human best.

I bought this book for my husband for Xmas. He loves the show Justified so I figured he'd like to read the actual book it was based upon. We'll see..Published 17 days ago by CRossi
Nobody writes like Elmore Leonard. I love his Raylan Givens character. Nobody's that cool in real life.Published 29 days ago by MEK
Great group of short stories. If you've seen the series Justified, it's great to read the stories that created the series. Well written, stand alone, interesting short stories. Read morePublished 29 days ago by Pen

Leonard's books are good, but, I can only read one a year as I feel like I'm reading very similar plots. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Montana Jack
