Lansdale spins a wild, rollicking yarn, but behind all the mayhem is a heartfelt tale about friendship, brotherhood, loyalty, and family. Hap and Leonard are complicated, violent men, but they display a basic humanity and decency that carries this remarkable series along.
The Texan equivalent to our own Christopher Brookmyre...A rollicking pulp thriller, with a surprisingly warm and empathetic core.
Dialogue worthy of Elmore Leonard, memorable characters and explosive action
Praise for the Hap and Leonard books
Another rip-roaring, wisecracking, savagely violent story...Gloriously bloody fun
Joe R. Lansdale has a wicked way with words...One almost feels guilty enjoying [Hap and Leonard's] raw, rollicking adventures. But Lansdale has a way of winning readers over with his deceptively elegant brand of 'redneck noir'.
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
Praise for Rusty Puppy
