9780062120335: Pronto: A Novel

“Speedy, exhilarating, and smooth. Nobody does it better.”
Washington Post

“The man knows how to grab you—and Pronto is one of the best grabbers in years.”
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.

Review:

In the world of Elmore Leonard novels, cops and criminals get by with a grudging respect for each other's capabilities:

Harry had been arrested by Buck Torres a half-dozen times or so; they knew each other pretty well and were friends. Not socially, Harry had never met Buck's wife, but friends in the way they trusted one another and always had time to talk about other things than what they did for a living.
Right now, 66-year-old Harry Arno's in trouble. In order to get at his boss, Jimmy Cap, the feds told Jimmy that Harry's skimming off the sports book he runs, the idea being that Harry will testify in exchange for protection from Tommy Bucks (a.k.a. the Zip), Jimmy's enforcer. But Harry's got a few tricks up his sleeve. Then when a straight-shooting U.S. Marshall decides to spend his vacation tracking Harry down, all hell breaks loose. Set in Miami, Florida, and Rapallo, Italy, Pronto is another brilliantly executed combination of suspense and black humor from the master of crime fiction. --Ron Hogan

From the Publisher:

Well-known South Miami Beach bookie Harry Arno was grossing seven thousand aweek running sports bets. He split fifty-fifty with local wiseguy JimmyCapotorto, aka Jimmy Cap, but by skimming off the top for twenty years, Harryhad stashed away enough to retire. Everything was set for his name-change andvanishing act to the Italian Riviera with his girlfirend, Joyce (Joy, when shewas a topless dancer), right after the Super Bowl. Harry Arno felt like alucky man.

He felt wrong. An FBI assault on organized crime had targeted Jimmy Cap, andHarry was set up as the fall guy to help them do it. Now "Zip," a Sicilian ina classic black suit, had a reason to want Harry dead. Raylan Givens, aStetson-wearing U.S. marshal, had the job of keeping him alive. And from Miamito Rapallo, Italy, Harry Arno had plans of his own to clean up the past,guarantee his future...and let drawling Raylan Givens go one-on-one across twocontinents with the mob.
