Riding, riding down the river
Harry Arno is a retired gambler who had a recent DWI and so his ex-girlfriend, Joyce, has been relegated to act as his chauffeur Joyce has been dating Raylan for a while and they've become accustomed to each other.
Harry uses a number of men to collect gambling debts when necessary. One of the people who owe Harry a great deal of money is Chip Gantz and when he's visited by Bobby Deo to collect the money he owes Harry, Chip offers Bobby a job.
This is an interesting story with good character development and is entertaining. One of the entertaining characters is a young woman, Rev. Dawn Navarro, a psychic. Surprisingly, she may actually have some psychic powers.
As usual with Elmore Leonard, the story is original and entertaining. There is excellent dialogue and scene descriptions that help the reader feel as though the action is taking place right in front of them.
