Contest – Win Elmore Leonard’s New Novel!

Justified fans, this one’s for you: Raylan Givens’ creator, Elmore Leonard, turns 85 on October 11 – and to celebrate, FX and HarperCollins are sending us copies of his new novel Djibouti to give to our readers!

Here’s the official description:

“Leonard departs Detroit and L.A. for the Horn of Africa, where Somali pirates own the seas, al-Qaeda operatives lurk in the streets, and loyalty is scarcer than clean drinking water. Young American filmmaker Dara Barr is fresh off an Oscar® win for her documentary on Hurricane Katrina and anxious for a new challenge. With her six-foot-seven cameraman and confidant Xavier LeBo, at her side, she embarks on a journey into the heart of Djibouti, intent on pulling the covers off the shadowy world of modern-day piracy.”

Sound interesting? Then here’s what you need to know:
