Elmore John Leonard Jr. (October 11, 1925 – August 20, 2013) was an American novelist, short story writer, and screenwriter.

Elmore John Leonard Jr. His earliest novels, published in the 1950s, were Westerns, but he went on to specialize in crime fiction and suspense thrillers, many of which have been adapted into motion pictures. Among his best-known works are Get Shorty, Out of Sight, Swag, Hombre, Mr. Majestyk, and Rum Punch (adapted as the film Jackie Brown).

Also by Elmore Leonard. Chapter One. Raylan Givens was holding a federal warrant to serve on a man in the marijuana trade known as Angel Arenas, forty-seven, born in the . but 100 percent of him Hispanic. I met him, Raylan said, the time I was on court duty in Miami and he was up for selling khat. That Arab plant you chew on and get high. Just medium high, Rachel Brooks said, in the front seat of the SUV, Raylan driving, early morning sun showing behind them. Khat’s just catchin on, grown in California, big in San Diego among real Africans.

Raylan is Leonard’s best of the 21st century-good stuff from first page to last. The smarter crooks give Raylan grudging respect; his fellow lawmen grant him their highest praise: ‘You’re doin’ a job the way we like to see it done. The same can be said of the 86-year-old Elmore Leonard. Raylan reads like a script, fast-moving and action-packed.

From what I've read, Elmore Leonard gave an ARC of Raylan to the writers of Justified and told them to mine it for parts. If they use the parts I think they will, the next couple seasons of Justified are going to be pretty spectacular. So, how do I justify giving this a four?

Elmore Leonard can write circles around almost anybody active in the crime novel today. Marshal Raylan Givens (Pronto, Riding the Rap, Fire in the Hole) is one of Leonard’s most popular creations, thanks in part to the phenomenal success of the hit TV series Justified. Suspenseful, darkly wry and riveting, and crackling with Leonard’s trademark electric dialogue, Raylan is prime Grand Master Leonard as you have always loved him and always will.

He also appeared in the novels RIDING THE RAP (1995) and RAYLAN (2012), Leonard’s final work, from which several plot lines were adapted by the writers of Justified. Raylan is described as forty years old, thin, and almost perpetually wearing a cowboy hat. With his laconic style and old-fashioned views, he occupies a position somewhere between a modern law enforcer and a Western cowboy

Throw her heart
To be honest, reading this book was like looking at a first draft of the Second and Third seasons of the JUSTIFIED television series - because that's basically what it was. Elmore Leonard, pleasantly surprised at how faithful to the spirit of his "Deputy US Marshall Raylan Givens" stories the first season of JUSTIFIED was (he had a few quibbles, like how attached to his Stetson Timothy Olyphant's Raylan was), wrote what feels like a quick series of short stories linked together into a novel. So if you watched the show? You mostly know how the stories go - except some of the more memorable characters in the television show, like Mags Bennett, don't exist in the book.

On the other hand, it's Elmore Leonard getting as close as he ever got to actually guiding the popular television series based on one of his characters - and it's worth reading for Leonard's gift for language and character, and how he saw JUSTIFIED going. If you're a fan of the show, you won't think buying the book is a waste of money or time....

Everyone hails Elmore Leonard as a “master of dialogue” and I can see why. It took me a minute to get used to his rapid-fire conversation, often written in colloquial Harlan speak without dialogue tags, but once I did, I appreciated the author’s efficiency of words.

Raylan reads like a script, fast-moving and action-packed. It was an easy read and I found it entertaining in the way I find John Locke’s books entertaining. A little outlandish, often comical, and nothing you have to think too much about. The author moves from organ theft to lady bank robbers to the tale of Jackie Nevada with some back and forth between the mines and the mining company and a sprinkling of major players, inside Harlan County and out. It’s a lot to take in, and I’m not sure what I’d say the plot was in a book that has at least five or six, most of which ended up with someone being shot. But it was fun. A nice break for me from mysteries and thriller and horror, my usual genres, and a treat since I did love Justified.

Picking up a series at book three can be tricky, but this one went on sale and I bought it for “someday.” I probably missed a bit, but as a fan of the show I didn’t miss much. I knew the characters and was pleased to see the favorites (Boyd, Dickie, and Winona among them) make their appearances. Overall, I had a good time reading Raylan and I would read the rest of the series as the occasional palate cleanser. Recommended.

This book was a lot of fun, it has what is basically three short stories woven together by cases being investigated by Raylan. I love the TV series Justified and this book is just like an episode from the show. The narrator of the audio book is very good, he is able to differentiate each character by his voice and adequately convey their tone and emotions. If you liked the series you will like this book, if you did not then give this a miss. This novel is filled with eccentric and quirky characters and lots of unexpected twists to the story. This is a great suspense thriller and I recommend it as a an entertaining read.

After I finished the Justify series, I discovered this book and, almost as an afterthought, I started reading it. It was strange and delicious at the same time; the characters were all there, but they were all just a tad different. At first it bothered me, but after a while I grew to like it. I started reading the kindle book, and then set it down. On a trip to Alaska, I began reading it again and was hooked.
I hadn't read Elmore Leonard for years, but pretty soon I discovered how much I enjoyed his writing.
It has a kind of rhythm, Elmore's writing has, and once you ride it, it's a good ride, like your first wave, or the first time you drive a car really well.
I'm looking forward to reading all his Raylan novels. If they're as good as this one, I'll be riding Elmore's wave once again.

Raylan is a great character and is fully realized in this portrayal of him. It's a great read. Along with the othe other Raylan stories (Fire in the Hole, etc...), it is probably my favorite of Leonard's stories. The only problem is that I had been watching justified for several years by the time I read it and the subtle differences between the character as portrayed by Timothy Oliphant and as written by Leonard were a little hard to reconcile. Neither better than the other. Both brilliant and not utterly dissimilar (this is true of all the other crossover characters)...just subtly different, so for the reader who is coming to the written Raylan stories from the TV show as I have, should be prepared for what feels like a sort of binocular effect. The characters are almost the same but not quite and so it's hard to read the stories without flipping back and for the between the two protrayls/interpretations in a slightly uncomfortable way.

The effect is not disturbing ought to ruin the sperience, however, and - brilliant though Oliphant's interpretation is - Leonard's Raylan must of course be given pride of position as he created him as opposed to "merely" interpreted him (however brilliantly) as Oliphant's has.

Summary; well worth the read and, I think, Leonard's best character. If you haven't yet watch justified, read the stories first and then settle into the Oliphant's version. Still well worth the read in the over direction though!

Raylin is so real, it is hard to believe this is fiction. He never fools around with due process when he believes a well-placed bullet would be a greater service to the people. His does cut people a lot of slack if he thinks that is the right thing to do. He is no superhero, but he is smart and patient and diligent. His personal life is a bit messy, but he has a great capacity for love once he figures out how to deal with it. He is a very likeble character; his flaws simply make him more human and more believable. Elmore Leonard is a very, very good author.
