Five of the best Elmore Leonard books

Tony Parsons's books include the international bestsellers, Man and Boy and Man and Wife. A former music journalist and television personality, he lives in England.

For the U.K. edition of GQ he named five of his favorite Elmore Leonard books, including:
Raylan (2012)

The late flowering that produced Rayland Givens, inspiration of the TV series, Justified. Raylan is Elmore digging deep at the very bottom of the American nightmare - Nazis with bazookas, mining executives who want to suck the juice from a land and its people and Raylan himself, the last of the great western heroes. He doesn't pull his gun unless he is planning to kill you.
Read about another book on the list.
