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.

Almost as good as Daddy

I wanted this to be great. I think I have listened to all of the Elmore Leonard books and short stories and I have loved them. Raylan, who came to life on in the "Justified" TV series , which was really great, has now become an ongoing hero as envisioned by young Peter. I hope there are more stories and especially I hope that Peter can get George Guidall to read the forthcoming Raylan stories. Keep 'em coming.

This a very differnt Raylan

If you enjoyed the original Raylan novel by Elmore Leonard, this is not the same. Dialogue is different, the character arch and storyline are different. It's an ok story, but nothing like Elmore Leonard's previous works.

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.

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.

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.

Audible freebie

My very first Audio book adventure....
I am a big fan of Peter Leonard as I was his Father and enjoyed this different take on Raylan Givens

Not the ending I would have expected but overall very enjoyable. Audio books won’t totally replace written novels just yet though
