The author of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens of TV’s Justified status, Elmore Leonard is the equivalent of any author who has ever captivated readers with darkish stories of heists, hijacks, double-crosses, and murder—John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, and Robert Parker included—and not anyone then or now's better.
