Inhaltsangabe: U.S. Marshall Raylan Givens is out to pasture in Palm Beach County, cooling his heels after shooting a wiseguy in a Miami restaurant. Boss' orders are to keep Raylan out of the U.S. Attorney's sight for awhile. But when old acquaintance Harry Arno disappears, it's strictly personal when Raylan sets out to find the missing bookie and satisfy the implacable Joyce, a woman with Harry on her mind and Raylan in her bed.
Riding the Rap
Harry is closing his books after being shut down by the feds. The master manipulator who had scammed the wiseguys and got away with it is officially Out of Business. But first he has to collect an overdue debt, and calls in "retired" bounty hunter and Latin Lover Bobby Deo, aka Bobby the Gardener, best-known for pruning plants and people. If anybody can find his man -- and collect -- it's Bobby. But Harry's salad days are over when Bobby digs up the Debtor, who offers him a slice of a really big score: a foolproof hostage-taking scheme, kidnapping big-bucks losers on the wrong side of the law. Beginning with Harry.
Elmore Leonard scores again in Riding the Rap, with dead-eye wit, razor-edged dialogue and heart-stopping suspense that has earned him bestselling popularity and critical acclaim as "the greatest living writer of crime fiction." -- The New York Times
Rezension: In this sequel to Pronto, Harry Arno has retired from bookmaking but is still closing out some of his outstanding debts. But then his collection agent, an ex-con by the name of Bobby Deo, goes to pick up $1,800 from Chip Ganz and ends up getting hired for a hostage-taking operation (like kidnapping "in a way," Chip tells him, "only different. A lot different.") When Harry's taken by his own man, it's up to United States Marshal Raylan Givens to track him down, in the same methodically relentless fashion he tracked Harry that time he ran off to Italy. Throw in a henchman named Louis Lewis with plans of his own and an attractive young psychic named Reverend Dawn, and you've got yet another crime story that'll keep you on the edge of your seat--occasionally chuckling to yourself--straight through to the finish. (And bonus points to loyal Leonard fans who can spot the crossover elements from Rum Punch and Maximum Bob.) --Ron Hogan
