That is, until the man who stole Leonard Pine's boyfriend turns up headless in a ditch and Leonard gets fingered for the murder.

Hap vows to clear Leonard's name, but things only get more complicated when Leonard's ex shows up dead, too. o the police, it is just a matter of gay-biker infighting, but to Hap and Leonard, murder is always serious business, and these hit a little too close to home.

    " some pretty cool twist and turns. as always lansdale grabs the reader by the ears and headbutts them. gotta love it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin Beck | 2/5/2014

    " Another violent, offensive, and extremely funny story from Joe Lansdale. The dialog between Hap and Leonard is reminiscent of Spenser/Hawk from Robert Parker's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ☮Karen | 2/2/2014

    " This would probably lend itself better to the male reader, due to some very macho parts; but as an open-minded female, I enjoyed it also. I'll definitely look for more books from this series. You learn that there are worse things in life than the bad chili.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 1/20/2014

    " I'd give this four stars without hesitation if my taste ran more to pathos, violence, and heavy suspense. Otherwise, good characters & plot, intelligently handled, lots of humor, and plenty of gritty local and human color. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lothar | 1/11/2014

    " Everybody with a sense of humor should have read at least the first 3 chapters in his life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 1/4/2014

    " The 4th in the "Hap and Leonard" series, and as always a lot of fun, a great deal of chaos, and some wonderful insights into the human psyche, including various of its twisted forms. I am reading this series slowly, savoring it, and often wondering if it deserves its own genre., "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad | 12/5/2013

    " I just can't say good enough things about Lansdale and his writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karla Leskovsky | 12/1/2013

    " Another great Hap and Leonard adventure. Lansdale created incredibly likeable characters with these mismatched, accidental crime solvers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeannette O'neal | 11/22/2013

    " This book was way too graphic and violent for my tastes. I doubt I will be reading another one by this author. Story line and plot not bad but I don't need the torture details or descriptive abuse. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Craig Childs | 11/6/2013

    " Not as good as its predecessor in the series, Two Bear Mambo. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe Faust | 6/8/2013

    " Novel of a redneck sleuth. Kinky Friedman was there first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Purcell | 1/27/2013

    " Read this out of order because I listened to it on audio, and it's the only one I could find in audio in the series. Good reader. Has all the voices down pat. Story was great, very funny, very profane (I like profane). I'll read more of this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 10/22/2012

    " Darker even than the others, with some really brutal shit in it that was less enjoyable, but also coupled with some of the funniest parts of the series so far.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 10/6/2012

    " Rough - interesting. A novel of suspense "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DJMikeG | 6/26/2012

    " Would give it 3.5 stars if you could do that on here. Great book, lots of fun, as usual from Lansdale. The dialog is especially sharp and funny in this novel. My favorite Hap and Leonard novel that I've read so far. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jon | 4/27/2012

    " I like Lansdale's books, but I couldn't get through this one. topping off the gang rape and graphic violence with middle-aged sex was enough for me to give up on finishing it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 10/18/2011

    " Hap and Leonard take on rabid squirrels, ticks in all the wrong places, gay bashing videos, grease napping, torture-happy ex professional wrestlers, and domestic violence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J | 9/10/2011

    " It was a great read, loved the quirky characters. If you like Books by Carl Hiaasen and Tim Dorsey you'll like Joe Lansdale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 8/14/2011

    " Hap and Leonard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 5/8/2011

    " I don't think I've ever laughed harder at a book than when I read the start of this one where a little squirrel comes bopping out of the East Texas Piney Woods and terrorizes the main character. Still, this was a violent story - more so than I really was comfortable with. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Craig | 4/30/2011

    " Not as good as its predecessor in the series, Two Bear Mambo. "

    " Bel libro, l'ho letto davvero volentieri scoprendomi un paio di volte a ridere.
    Peccato che abbia preso solo pochi giorni fa i primi due della serie di Hap e Leonard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 12/4/2010

    " Hap and Leonard take on rabid squirrels, ticks in all the wrong places, gay bashing videos, grease napping, torture-happy ex professional wrestlers, and domestic violence.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Belinda | 5/19/2010

    " Not for the faint of heart. Lots of profanity and good old boy Texas craziness. Yee-ha. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cideon | 8/12/2009

    " I enjoyed that kind of P.I. feel, in the sense of them trying to figure out what's going on and having problems along the way. Not what I expected after Lansdale's comic books, but still interesting on its own. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AC | 5/27/2009

    " Brady turned me on to Lansdale. Thank you Brady :) "
