Jackrabbit Smile

Jackrabbit Smile

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.

‘Reading Joe R. Lansdale is like listening to a favorite uncle who just happens to be a fabulous storyteller’ Dean Koontz

Hap and Leonard are an unlikely pair – Hap, a self-proclaimed white trash rebel, and Leonard, a tough-as-nails black gay Vietnam vet and Republican – but they’re the closest friend either of them has in the world. Hap is celebrating his wedding to his longtime girlfriend, when their backyard barbecue is interrupted by a couple of white supremacists. They’re not too happy to see Leonard, and no one is happy to see them, but they have a problem and they want Hap and Leonard to solve it.

Judith Mulhaney’s daughter, Jackrabbit, has been missing for five years. That is, she’s been missing from her family for five years, but she’s been missing from everybody, including the local no-goods they knew ran with her, for a few months. Despite their misgivings, Hap and Leonard take the case. It isn’t long until they find themselves mixed up in a revivalist cult believing that Jesus will return flanked by an army of lizard-men, and solving a murder to boot.

With Lansdale’s trademark humour, sharp dialogue, and plenty of righteous beatdowns, you won’t want to miss Hap and Leonard’s latest.

Reviews

The Texan equivalent to our own Christopher Brookmyre...A rollicking pulp thriller, with a surprisingly warm and empathetic core.
Glasgow Herald
Dialogue worthy of Elmore Leonard, memorable characters and explosive action
Crime Scene Magazine
Another rip-roaring, wisecracking, savagely violent story...Gloriously bloody fun
Metro
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
Praise for the Hap and Leonard books
