Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 couldna (TM)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 thata (TM)s just the way they like it. So when as ex-flame of Hapa (TM)s returns promising a huge score, Hap lets Leonard in on the scam, and thata (TM)s when things get interesting. Chockful of action and laughs, Savage Season is the masterpiece of dark suspense that introduced Hap and Leonard to the thriller scene. It hasna (TM)t been the same since.

The most consistently original and originally visceral writer the great state of Texas (or any other state for that matter) has seen in a score of flashpoint summers. - The Austin Chronicle

Lansdale has an unsettling sensibility. Be thankful he crafts such wild tall tales. - Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"Hap and Leonard put in long days of work for little reward. When Hap's old girlfriend Trudy struts in with a plan to make some serious money, Hap and Leonard cautiously get involved. Just as the money is acquired, Hap and Leonard quickly lose control of the situation. To survive, they need to rely upon each other and use their well-honed fighting skills against a ruthless madman. Phil Gigante's performance is mesmerizing: he infuses this book with attitude and style, imbuing each character with a rich distinct voice that resonates well with each personality. His narration is crisp and smooth, with a good distribution of tension according to the given scene. His sole weakness is that sometimes his character voices carry over into the narration causing momentary confusion for listeners. A Vintage paperback. (Feb.)"
