I rally love the TV show Justified, so was looking for any of Elmore Leonard's short stories featuring the US Marshall Raylan Givens. I enjoyed reading Riding the Rap, which had a number of nice twists to the story.

Classic Leonard, but not one of the best... a fast, fun read, though.

It seemed like a brilliant idea. Three mismatched bad guys - a Palm Beach pothead, 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 Forida's 24-karat Gold coast for three loco hombres...and trying to bring Harry back alive...
