Review of 'Pronto' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

Deputy United States Marshal Raylan Givens is a bit of an old-timey Marshal somehow cast in modern Miami chasing Italian thugs. This is the first of the books that the "Justified" TV series is based on -- there are four books now, and two seasons of the show -- and it's all worth reading & watching. Raylan's story is excellent fun without being pulpy and irritating. Leonard is a master craftsman with language, and this novel is just brilliantly written.

I'm going to read the second in the series now. And then possibly everything else Leonard has ever written.
