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
It seemed like a brilliant idea. Three mismatched bad guys--a Palm Beach potted, a Bahamian ex-con, and a Puerto Rican gardener turned mob enforcer--get together to carry out the perfect crime: kidnap retired Miami bookie Harry Arno and let him pay the ransom with his ill-gotten wealth. He can't go to the cops later. No one will miss him. It's perfect. Or so they figure.
They figure wrong. Harry's former girlfriend, ex-topless dancer Joyce Patton, misses him a lot. Now she's sending her current boyfriend, Stetson-hatted federal marshal Raylan Givens, looking for Harry. And Raylan always gets his man. And in this case, he also gets his woman--the last person to see Harry, a sexy psychic named Dawn. Dawn may be clairvoyant, or she may be in on the kidnapping. Either way, she gives Raylan a lead, and he's hunting on Florida's 24-karat Gold Coast for three loco hombres...and trying to bring Harry back alive...
