With the closing of the Harlan County, Kentucky coalmines, marijuana has become the biggest cash crop in the state. A hundred pounds of it can gross three-hundred thousand dollars, but thats chump change compared to the quarter million a human body can get youespecially when its sold off piece-by-piece.
So when Dickie and Coover Crowe, dope-dealing brothers known for sampling their own supply, decide to branch out into the body business, its up to U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens to stop them. But by the time Raylan finds out whos making the cuts, hes lying naked in a bathtub, with Layla the cool transplant nurse about to go for his kidneys.
Dark and droll, Raylan is pure Elmore Leonarda page-turner filled with sparkling dialogue and sly suspense that are the hallmarks of this modern master.
