Description

"Splendid...entirely engrossing."
--Los Angeles Times

"First-rate...an excellent thriller...well-plotted and smoothly written...crackles with suspense."
--Bergan Record

A classic crime novel, Mr. Majestyk is vintage Elmore Leonard--an edgy, dark, fiendishly compelling tale of a quiet man making a whole lot of noise. "The best writer of crime fiction today" (USA Today)--the acclaimed author who brought the world Raylan Givens, the trigger-happy U.S. Marshal who lights up TV screens across America in the hit series Justified--Leonard makes a big noise himself with this timeless noir tale of personal justice and brutal vengeance. When a war veteran Arizona farmer loses everything, ruined by the local mob, he decides to fight back in this masterful crime fiction thriller--early proof that Leonard not only belongs in the company of John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, Robert B. Parker and the other great names in American mystery and suspense...he is, in fact, "The King Daddy of crime writers" (Seattle Times).

Back cover copy

Aincent Majestyk saw too much death in the jungles of Southeast Asia. All he wants to do now is farm his melons and forget. But peace can be an elusive commodity, even in the Arizona hinterlands--and especially when the local mob is calling all the shots. And one quiet, proud man's refusal to be strong-armed by a powerful hood is about to start a violent chain reaction that will leave Mr. Majestyk ruined, in shackles, and without a friend in the world--except for one tough and beautiful woman. But his tormentors never realized something about their mark: this is not his first war. Vince Majestyk knows more than they'll ever know about survival . . . and everything about revenge.
