Reviews

"Dark, moving . . . As always, Lansdale spins a wild, rollicking yarn, but behind all the mayhem is a heartfelt tale about friendship, brotherhood, loyalty, and family. Hap andLeonard are complicated, violent men, but they display a basic humanity and decency that carries this remarkable series along."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A unique mix of sly humor and horrific violence. Readers will laugh at some particularly profane smart-ass repartee and then want to cover their eyes a couple sentences later as the violence explodes. Another fine entry in a great series."--Booklist (starred review)
"The pleasure of any Hap and Leonard mystery is the yin-yang of the two heroes: white/black, straight/gay, liberal/conservative, easygoing/hair-trigger temper. Without making any brotherhood speeches, the books are rough-hewn fables of tolerance in action. Part of the reason it all goes down without any kind of 'Kumbaya' ickiness is that Lansdale writes such good smart-ass repartee. . . . This puppy tells a waggly tale the reader is happy to follow down the roughest paths."--Kirkus Reviews
"Lansdale has a knack for murder, though thankfully he limits that talent to the fictional adventures of crime-fighting duo Hap and Leonard."--Houston Press
Lansdale "has a wonderfully warped way with words. In his hands, everyone can curse a blue streak and it comes out as profane poetry."--Dallas Morning News
"Joe R. Lansdale has a wicked way with words. Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, small-town East Texas private detectives, say the filthiest things. Some of it is good-natured banter between buddies; the rest is don't-mess-with-me trash talk. And they don't just talk dirty. They fight dirty, too. One almost feels guilty enjoying their raw, rollicking adventures. But Lansdale, an Edgar Award-winning writer from Nacogdoches, has a way of winning readers over with his deceptively elegant brand of "redneck noir."--Ft. Worth Star Telegram
