Rusty Puppy

Rusty Puppy

The brand new Hap and Leonard mystery – now an Amazon TV series.

Unlikely detective duo Hap and Leonard’s latest case could expose the corrupt cops of East Texas – if it doesn’t get them killed first.

Jamar Elton supposedly died in a fight with local hoods, but it doesn’t add up. His sister Charm had recently been stalked by a bullying cop. Jamar had set out to gather evidence on him…and found more than he bargained for.

Soon, Hap and Leonard are treading on the toes of just about everyone in the local underworld – cops and criminals alike. But if anyone can navigate these pitfalls and bring the bad guys to justice, it’s them.

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