Honky Tonk Samurai

Honky Tonk Samurai

Meet Hap and Leonard, the unlikely detective duo now on screen in the highly praised series starring James Purefoy, Michael K. Williams and Christina Hendricks.

Hap and Leonard are not your typical private eyes. But what they lack in experience they make up with perseverance.

Hap, a former 60s activist and self-proclaimed white trash rebel, and Leonard, a tough black, gay Vietnam vet, have finally decided to make their detective work official. Their first client: a mean old woman looking for her missing granddaughter.

The girl used to work for a car dealership in town… but it seems like cars weren’t the only things on offer. The mystery thickens to include blackmail, revenge, and an inbred family of hillbilly assassins who eliminate any threats to the operation.

Only Hap and Leonard could turn a simple missing person case into a life-threatening showdown, and only Joe Lansdale could tell this story. Filled with hilarious dialogue, relentless pacing, and unorthodox characters, Honky Tonk Samurai is a rambunctious thrill ride by one hell of a writer.

Reviews

The Texan equivalent to our own Christopher Brookmyre...A rollicking pulp thriller, with a surprisingly warm and empathetic core.
Glasgow Herald
Another rip-roaring, wisecracking, savagely violent story...Gloriously bloody fun
Metro
Joe Lansdale is one of the dark kings of modern mystery fiction, a master of the genre. His name deserves to be whispered with the greats
John Connolly
Dialogue worthy of Elmore Leonard, memorable characters and explosive action
