Picked this up because it features the original Raylan Givens, the inspiration for the character of the same name on FX's Justified. While there are some commonalities, there are so many more differences that the book feels like it's about someone else entirely. That being said, this read isn't a big time commitment, and it's fun to pick up on some of the nuggets that were mined from this story for tv!Raylan's canon (the Tommy Bucks shooting takes place here, although differently than set up in the show; the anecdote about Raylan losing Rolly because he stopped for ice cream in an airport is taken from Raylan's backstory with Harry Arno, etc.).

This would make a fine airplane/beach read.
