A rip-roaring, high-octane, Texas-sized thriller, featuring two friends, one vixen, a crew of washed-up radicals, loads of money, and bloody mayhem. Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are best friends, yet they couldn't be more different. Hap is an east Texas white boy with a weakness for Texas women. Leonard is a black, gay Vietnam vet. Together, they stir up more commotion than a fire storm.

But that's just the way they like it. So when as ex-flame of Hap's returns promising a huge score, Hap lets Leonard in on the scam, and that's when things get interesting. Chock full of action and laughs, Savage Season is the masterpiece of dark suspense that introduced Hap and Leonard to the thriller scene. It hasn't been the same since.

    " Audio... Fun book. Enjoyed the one liners... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leonardo Etcheto | 11/6/2013

    " Very interesting main characters. Kind of a crazy plot with old hippies becoming armed revolutionaries so as to fix society. I loved the banter between Hap and Leonard, seemed spot on to me as banter between two dudes who are constantly ribbing each other. The train wreck could be seen coming from a mile away, but it was an intersting crash. Pretty graphic story, all the way around, but related in a very easy going matter of fact way. The humanity and understanding shown by Hap and Leonard make the bitterness go down easy. "

    " Joe Lansdale always delivers a rip-roaring good time. It took me a while to get to his Hap and Leonard books, but I'm glad to be here now. Just finished the first, getting ready to crack the second. These are fun reads: chock-full of East Texas soul and good old boys with great big hearts. "
