Review: The Friends of Eddie Coyle

Wandering the hollows of Harlan county during the series finale of Justified, my attention was momentarily distracted from the task at hand by the title of this tome in the screenwriters’ homage to Rayland’s true daddy. It gave me pause such that I might consider acquiring a copy, which subsequent to the final credit roll, I endeavored to do successfully from Amazon. It was a good read, but to my taste, mind you, not Elmore Leonard good. And while I won’t be meandering through these here pages another nine times as Marshal Givens claims to have done, it was truly a down right enlightening experience to make the acquaintance of the source of said Leonard’s fictional inspirations. (4 of 5 stars)
