    " Lansdale seems to be mellowing with age with this effort. It's very Elmore Leonardian, albeit with Lansdale's patented Southern redneck mojo twist. Several plot points are incredibly predictable and the "villains" never really seemed to have a purpose. Additionally, there were a few tertiary plot points that felt like they were thrown in willy-nilly. There was also an underlying Twin Peaks vibe--strange goings-on in a small town/exposing the soft-white underbelly of a sleepy rural community/i.e. things are not always as they seem on the surface--that felt a little too pat. Other'n that, it was a quick and enjoyable read thanks to Lansdale's clean/lean/mean prose. I can see this as a set-up for future books featuring the two main characters, which could be a good and a bad move. "

    " a little more predictable than usual from Lansdale but a good read. I almost hate to admit enjoying the twisted stories that Joe L. can come up with but I do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/10/2014

    " I always like Lansdale books. Crazy things happen in them. Very entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vickie | 2/3/2014

    " This is the first I've read of this author's work. I do like his writing style. Story was kind of gruesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 1/31/2014

    " Suspenseful mystery, funny moments, clever turns of phrase--am looking forward to reading more Lansdale. Were it a movie, might have to rate it R for language, violence--but he is a good storyteller and wordsmith. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony Gleeson | 1/25/2014

    " Lansdale can somehow be dark, brooding, disturbing, and grotesque while simultaneously being funny as all hell. This one is no exception. The story's a good one, one of those "searching for the enigmatic missing woman" things. The characters are fairly fleshed-out and fun in a weird sort of way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessie Love | 1/15/2014

    " Highly reccomend reading this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 1/7/2014

    " I love Joe R. Lansdale's writing. I read a review that called it "redneck noir" and that fits aptly. Even though I figured the mystery of this one out pretty quickly, Lansdale keeps the story fresh and the pace quick, and his language pops. A fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben Hamilton | 12/25/2013

    " Very dark but I enjoyed the story. Ending a bit rushed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sockmonkey | 12/18/2013

    " Not the best thing that Joe's written but it really doesn't matter. His worst stories are better written and more entertaining than most of the crap that's in book stores now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eddie | 11/30/2013

    " I, most of the time, love reading Joe R. Lansdale. His work is creative, foul mouthed, and fast. I love his characters. I mean, love them. Don't get me wrong, I have picked up some his work and wanted to chuck the book across the room, but this is one of those books that stayed in my hands. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 11/24/2013

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as I have the others I've read (Sunset & Sawdust, The Bottoms, A Fine Dark Line). Just a warning, there are some raunchy parts, especially when Booger meets up with Cason. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DJMikeG | 9/21/2013

    " Yet another extremely entertaining, dark yet funny, violent, twisty turny novel by Lansdale. I enjoyed it, but there were possibly 5 or 10 too many plot twists. Still, a very entertaining read. Lansdale is a fantastic author. This book reminded me a bit of "In The Dark" by Richard Laymon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kemper | 4/30/2013

    " A brutal redneck crime story with memorable villians and plenty of dark humor. In other words, another Joe Lansdale book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/27/2013

    " This is the first of Joe Lansdale's books for me, yes the story is a little gory for some, but I really liked the main character inyteractions and the writing style. It was a real page turner and though I figured alot of the story out before the end I enjoyed reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Cupp | 12/24/2012

    " As wuith any Lansdale, dialog is the key. Ad this one had me rolling on the floor amid some nasty stuff. Not for everyone but certainly written for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Thompson | 12/7/2012

    " The book lags in the middle, some of the dialogue is shite, but the story is excellent. Love the characters. Really enjoyed it overall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 12/5/2012

    " This was a very quick read that had me sucked in from the beginning. It's dark and twisted and I loved it. I only gave it 4 stars because I thought the ending could have had a bit more to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Hofstetter | 8/30/2012

    " I really like this book. It was good story. I kind of figured it out, but not really so I was happy about that. I like the ending it didn't just hurry along. So all in all very good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jon | 3/19/2012

    " More of a 3.8, really. Just a good mystery/thriller/suspense/gore romp that is actually written well. This is what books written by people like James Patterson wish they could be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Beck | 11/14/2011

    " This is a really strange book, both hilariously funny at times and extremely violent at times. Lansdale is a great writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Beck | 5/13/2011

    " An excellent book. Funny characters and an interesting plot. This book is laugh out loud funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 5/9/2011

    " Very dark but I enjoyed the story. Ending a bit rushed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew | 4/8/2011

    " Lansdown is great at the smart ass dialogue. Leather Maiden was an enjoyable read but not one of his best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony | 1/31/2011

    " i liked this just as much as my favorite kenzie/gennaro novels by dennis lehane...maybe because booger was so much like bubba, whatever the reason, it was good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eddie | 4/8/2010

    " I, most of the time, love reading Joe R. Lansdale. His work is creative, foul mouthed, and fast. I love his characters. I mean, love them.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 T | 2/16/2010

    " This guy is fun to read. An East Texas Elmore Leonard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marvin | 10/2/2009

    " Another solid thriller by Lansdale. Lansdale's characters usually dwell on the dark side of life and this novel is no exception. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 8/20/2009

    " This is not a Hap and Leonard book, so not as much comic relief, but the hero is a real smart aleck and the scenes between him and his boss (an 80 ish prickly hard-ass woman)are a delight. This is classic Lansdale and does not disappoint. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 8/9/2009

    " I liked this one. But it's creepy so beware! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jon | 6/18/2009

    " More of a 3.8, really. Just a good mystery/thriller/suspense/gore romp that is actually written well. This is what books written by people like James Patterson wish they could be. "
