Raylan - Blog Tour January 7, 2013

Raylan - Elmore Leonard (Blog Tour Publisher)

When Dickie and Coover Crowe, dope-dealing brothers known for sampling their own supply, decide to branch out into the body business, it's up to U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens to stop them. But Raylan isn't your average marshal; he's the laconic, Stetson-wearing, fast-drawing lawman who juggles dozens of cases at a time and always shoots to kill. But by the time Raylan finds out who's making the cuts, he's lying naked in a bathtub, with Layla, the cool transplant nurse, about to go for his kidneys.

My Thoughts: 
First off let me say I love this TV show so when I saw a chance to be a part of this blog tour, I jumped on it. Glad I wasn't disappointed.  I really enjoyed this book. Normally when I read a book I form pictures of what I imagine characters to look like. I gotta say it was kind of strange to start a book with some characters firmly planted in my brain, but I liked it.
The story was fast paced and interesting with all my favorite characters and some new ones added in the mix. I did have a strange sense of deja vue reading this. i kept thinking I know the story line  Though I am probably sure it is just lingering crazy story line left over from the show creeping in.
If I had any complaint at all was the plot could be a little choppy but that's okay it was fast paced and kept me entertained.
