Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Lansdale's iconic — and occasionally scandalous — crime-fighting duo rides again in this incredible yarn. Hap and Leonard find that the road to Hootie Hoot, Okla., is paved with extraordinary circumstances, a prostitute in peril, and a gang of bikers out for a wild ride. Phil Gigante has a blast delivering the silly one-liners and zingers. His campy and deliberately one-dimensional characterizations are the perfect fit for the book's purple prose and off-color scenarios. It's an unforgettable performance that's downright shameless and tremendous fun. A Vintage paperback. (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are in for an action-packed adventure when they cross paths with a towering Pentecostal preacher, a midget with a giant attitude, and a gang of bikers turned soldiers of fortune. Even though a midlife crisis just crashed into Hap Collins like a runaway pickup, he's still got his job, he knows his best friend, Leonard Pine, will always be there for him, and, of course, he's got his main squeeze, Brett Sawyer. Things hit a new low, however, when Brett's daughter, Tillie, who's been walking on the wrong side of the law, suddenly stands in need of a rescue. It won?t be easy ? it never is ? but nothing is going to stop Hap and Leonard as they hit the road destined for Hootie Hoot, Oklahoma, to shake things up. And with Hap and Leonard at the wheel, this promises to be a wild ride.?Hilarious. . . . Addictively scarfable. . . . Two thumbs-up, and pardon the barbecue smears.? - Texas Monthly? Joe Lansdale is] master at taking a simple everyday event and turning reality upside down.? ? Mystery Scene

Synopsis:

Bouncing at a local club by night and living by the grace of his best friend Leonard Pine and his good woman Brett Sawyer by day, Hap Collins is down but a long throw from out. Thata (TM)s the good news. Hea (TM)ll need it for the bad. On the hard road from mosquito ridden LaBorde, Texas, to the fleshpots and hardasses of Hootie Hoot, Oklahoma, Hap will have to handle a redheaded midget with a giant attitude and an army of bikers turned vice profiteers and blood-cold killers. All for the quick rescue of Bretta (TM)s daughter Tillie a a drugged-out, trick-turning prodigal who doesna (TM)t care to be found. Ita (TM)ll be a ride, all right. Just leave the shooting to Hap, and the driving to Leonard.
