    " White straight ex-hippie redneck Hap and black gay VietNam vet redneck Leonard get their asses kicked and solve a mystery again. Awful things happen to people who know these guys. They should probably have a disclaimer they read when they meet someone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DJMikeG | 2/2/2014

    " This was a fast, fun, demented, hilarious, violent, grotesque little noir potboiler that didn't overstay its welcome. The plot itself isn't spectacular, but the joy in reading Lansdale is in his amazing eye for detail and the over the top scenarios he creates. This was the first of his Hap and Leonard series that I've read and I look forward to reading more of them. The first half of the book is a riot, I laughed out loud on more than one occasion. The second half gets a bit more serious, and there are some surprisingly beautiful passages scattered throughout. This novel didn't exactly blow my mind, but it was quite enjoyable and recommended to those who wouldn't consider themselves "politically correct" or at least have a good, wicked sense of humor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rock | 12/18/2013

    " Just a bit too heavy handed on the racism aspect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clarence Beeks | 12/14/2013

    " In the grand tradition of pulp 'detectives', Collins and Pine take several beatings and solve the case without having to do much else. But who cares when the story is this entertaining with some of the best wisecracking dialogue ever written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noah Soudrette | 11/23/2013

    " Lansdale does it again. This, the third in the Hap and Leonard series, is another wonderfully entertaining, but more importantly, thought provoking entry into the series. Lansdale never lets the character development wain and this story is another fascinating step for our two heroes. There is some difficult subject material in this one, but it's important. My only complaint is that I saw the twist coming with still about 100 pages left. Still, awesome stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karla Leskovsky | 11/22/2013

    " Not the best of the Hap and Leonard series, but still entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Briant | 11/15/2013

    " I have read everyone of Joe Lansdale's Hap and Leonard series books. Hap, as the always down-on-his-luck white guy and Leonard as his flagrantly-gay black partner. The sarcastic dialog between these two throughout the book makes it worth reading all by itself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim | 10/29/2013

    " Third Hap and Leonard book. Totally sweet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 7/8/2013

    " The interaction between Hap and Leonard had me laughing out loud. Parts of this book brought tears to my eyes, it was so funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 1/15/2013

    " this one was sad. but good. makes you realize again that things aren't what they seem. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 5/19/2012

    " A Hap and Leonard suspense novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MM32 | 5/3/2012

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather S | 12/25/2011

    " Rather crass language, not for the conservative reader, but very likable characters and a good storyline with a twist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lee | 7/20/2011

    " My favorite author. The Hap and Leonard novels are hilarious and crude, but also good crime mysteries in their own right. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike Moskos | 4/3/2011

    " Simplistic, clique filled story. That said, the audiobook producers/readers did their best with it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nishant | 9/23/2010

    " The first chapter was perhaps one of the funniest I have read in a long time. Politically incorrect, with two well, you can't really call them detectives, this murder mystery set in East Texas was a delight to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lee | 9/6/2010

    " My favorite author. The Hap and Leonard novels are hilarious and crude, but also good crime mysteries in their own right. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shedrick | 5/26/2010

    " More fun and violence from Hap and Leonard...
    The narrator is perfect and the story sounds like something Elmore Leonard would have come up with if he was born in East Texas. This whole series is a hoot! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Space | 4/12/2010

    " So far, this third entry in Lansdale's Hap and Leonard series is superior to its two predecessors. It takes the characters into uncharted territory and thrusts them into their most terrifying scenarios yet. I can't wait to see how/if he tops this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 8/28/2009

    " These two characters, Hap and Leonard, are so funny....love them. Lansdale is a great storyteller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chompa | 11/12/2008

    " Excellent read. It started a little slow, but got to be a page turner. I've not read anything that brutal and raw in ages. Greatly enjoying reading the Lansdale books. "
