Pronto by Elmore Leonard, read by Tammy, on 04/02/2012

This is the first novel featuring U.S. Marshall Raylon Givens on his first assignment in Florida since he taught marksmanship at the marshall’s training facility. He’s bringing in a bookie who could be a good witness against some mafia members, but Harry slips away and tries to run to Italy to a town he is nostalgic for since serving there in WWII. Raylon and the mafia hitmen follow Harry to Italy but who will find him first and who will make it back to the states alive?

Raylon’s personal history is different in the novels than on the TV series Justified but the personality of the character rings true.
