Publisher's Summary

After an altercation with his superiors in Harlan County, Kentucky, Deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens is offered two choices. He can either retire or finish his career on the fugitive task force in the crime-ridden precincts of Detroit. 

Acting on a tip, Raylan and his new partner Deputy Marshal Bobby Torres arrest Jose Rindo, a destructive and violent criminal. Rindo is also being pursued by the FBI who arrive shortly after he is in custody. Raylan bumps heads with a beautiful FBI agent named Nora Sanchez, who wants Rindo for the murder of a one of their own. 

When Rindo escapes from the county jail and is arrested in Ohio, Raylan and FBI Special Agent Sanchez drive south to pick up the fugitive and bring him back to stand trial. Later, when Rindo escapes again, Raylan and Nora - still at odds - are reunited and follow the elusive fugitive's trail across Arizona to El Centro, California, and into Mexico where they have no jurisdiction or authority. How are they going to bring Rindo, a Mexican citizen, across the border without anyone knowing?

Raylan Goes to Detroit is an exciting continuation of one of Elmore Leonard's greatest heroes, an edge-of-your-seat page-turner in the spirit of Elmore's classic Raylan books.

Excellent continuation of Raylan.

Loved every minute of this book. It was not Elmore writing it.... but as close as you can get. Peter Leonard is a great writer. I am looking forward to his next book...hopefully, more about Raylan.

Raylan rides again!

Another quality Raylan Givens story. Not the usual unexpected twists and turns but still a good one. The performance was somewhat underwhelming. The accents, and most of the dialogue was pretty dispassionate and a more lively performance could've made this a more enjoyable listen.

Bad Spanish

I would normally have given this book 5 stars except for the rather mediocre narrative when it came to pronunciation and accents when it came to the Spanish portion.
