Baker & Taylor
Having made his name by killing notorious bank robber Emmet Long, twenty-one-year-old Carl Webster, the most famous Deputy U.S. Marshal in the country, embarks on a dangerous search for Jack Belmont, the blacksheep son of an oil millionaire who dreams of becoming Public Enemy Number One, in a thriller set against the backdrop of 1930s Oklahoma. (Suspense)


Carl Webster, the hot kid of the marshals service, works out of the Tulsa, Oklahoma, federal courthouse during the 1930s.

Louly Brown loves Carl but wants the world to think she is Pretty Boy Floyd's girlfriend.

Tony Antonelli of True Detective magazine wants to write like Richard Harding Davis and wishes cute little Elodie wasn't a whore.

Jack Belmont wants to rob banks and become public enemy number one.

With tommy guns, hot cars, speakeasies, cops and robbers, and a former lawman who believes in vigilante justice, all played out against the flapper period of gun molls and Prohibition, The Hot Kid is Elmore Leonard -- a true master -- at his best.

If "Justified" was set in the 30's it would be like this. Carl Webster has a lot of similarities with Raylan Givens.
