Edgar Award winner and fan favorite Joe R. Lansdale is back with Hap and Leonard’s latest caper: investigating the disappearance of a revivalist cult leader’s daughter. 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, Brett (who is also Hap and Leonard’s boss), when their backyard barbecue is interrupted by a couple of Pentecostal white supremacists. They’re not too happy to see Leonard, and no one is happy to see them, but they have a problem and only Hap and Leonard will take the case. Judith Mulhaney’s daughter, Jackrabbit, has been missing for five years. Well, she’s been missing from them for five years, but she’s been missing from everybody, including the local no-goods who ran with her, for a few months. Despite their misgivings about Judith and her son, Hap and Leonard take the case. It isn’t long until they find themselves mixed up in a revivalist cult that believes Jesus will return flanked by an army of lizard-men—solving a murder to boot. With Lansdale’s trademark humor, whip-smart dialogue, and plenty of ass-kicking adventures to be had, you won’t want to miss Hap and Leonard’s latest.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Talking dirty can be great fun, especially when the trash talkers are Hap Collins and Leonard Pine…[But] for such a freewheeling stylist, Lansdale can write a sensitive obituary for a ‘confused and tortured soul’ like Sebastian, as well as boisterous action scenes for his irrepressible leads.’” New York Times
“In our fractious age, Hap and Leonard wouldn’t even be friends on Facebook, but Joe R. Lansdale has written a series in which the two of them are best friends, closer than a pair of brothers…And while the mysteries that the duo solve in every book are intriguing, it is Hap and Leonard’s hilarious relationship that keeps me reading.” Signature Reads
“Part of what makes this book exceptional is the way Lansdale portrays the long legacy of race and class discrimination as the characters’ lived experience…Lansdale is one of a kind, with a deceptively folksy and funny voice that hides real darkness; fans of the eponymous SundanceTV series will be delighted to find the books are even better.” Booklist (starred review)
“Raucous…As always, Lansdale provides a wild, fun ride with an astute eye on social issues.” Publishers Weekly
“Hap and Leonard’s macho and crass banter is certain to delight or offend readers…Fans of the books and Sundance TV series will eagerly follow the men through their latest, politically timely hullabaloo.” Library Journal
“The latest noir adventures of the Texas investigators Hap and Leonard…A companionable, enjoyable, and profane series.” Kirkus Reviews
