I have read a lot of Elmore Leonard novels over the years and always enjoyed them. They are always well paced, with interesting characters, and Pronto is no exception. I pulled this one off the shelf when I found out that Raylan Givens is a featured character in the book. For those who don’t know, Raylan is the main character in the TV series Justified on the FX network. I had heard that it was based on a Leonard short story and didn’t realize that Raylan had also appeared in books. Indeed, he is in Pronto and its sequel, Riding the Rap. According to articles, and verified when I spoke with Dutch at a Michael Connelly book signing last April (see my report below), while Leonard is an executive producer of the show, he does not work on the scripts. Even so, viewers will recognize a scene toward the end of the book!
