9780141015491: When the Women Come out to Dance

Raylan Givens is a US martial, but he used to work in the mines, digging coal for a living. He had a friend there who's also changed his business: he now heads up a neo-Nazi group that is threatening to get out of control. When they come head to head, Raylan has to decide how far he'll go in pursuit of justice...Elmore Leonard's brilliant novella WHEN THE WOMEN COME OUT TO DANCE heads up a fiery collection of the master's shorter fiction, all published in book form for the first time.

Product Description:

In this collection of shorter works - one novella and a number of short stories - Leonard is at his characteristic best: dead-on dialogue, vivid atmosphere and driving plots involving retired baseball players, US marshals, bank robbers, Mexican housemaids and neo-Nazis.
