??Entertainment Weekly

Fans of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens of the hit TV series Justified are in for a major treat. The unstoppable manhunter with the very itchy trigger finger stars in Pronto, a crime fiction gem from the one and only Elmore Leonard, "the greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever" (New York Times Book Review). The Grand Master justifies the overwhelming acclaim he has received over the course of his remarkable career with an electrifying thriller that sends the indomitable Raylan racing to Italy on the trail of a fugitive bookie who's hiding from the vengeful Miami mob. The legendary Leonard, whom the Seattle Times lauds as the "King Daddy of crime writers," proves that all comparisons to American noir icons John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, and James M. Cain are well deserved with this tale of very dirty doings and extremely dangerous men coming together in the birthplace of Puccini, Garibaldi, and La Cosa Nostra.… (mere)

Really fun book. ( )

Pronto is a crime novel written by Elmore Leonard and published in 1993. Leonard introduces three main characters and gets them moving against each other. Harry is constantly reminiscing about World War II. Tommy carries a picture of the old crime boss Frank Costello in his wallet. Raylan is a U.S. Marshal who wears a cowboy hat. In addition, the inclusion of the Ezra Pound stories add more to the understanding of Harry and his reasons for retiring to Rapallo, Italy.

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.

It's probably a disservice to the book coming at it backwards from the series. Raylan is like a sidekick in this first outing, and even if the familiar stoic cowboy is there in outline, the show is a different, better, beast.
It's still an enjoyable read and Leonard's snappy dialogue has a very evocative noir sense. Be prepared for a Sopranos episode's worth of italian mobsters and slang. ( )

NOT the Raylan Timothy Oliphant plays on Justified. A little duffier, a little less together; still very groovy.

This was fun. ( )

Wise guys, maybe. Bright guys, no. Elmore Leonard has captured them perfectly, a culture of vainglorious goons who have had their heyday.
