Hap and Leonard is now a Sundance TV series starring James Purefoy and Michael Kenneth Williams.

Hap Collins and Leonard Pine find mucho trouble, this time in Mexico, when they come face to face with a nudist mobster, his seven-foot strong-arm, a octogenarian knife-touting fisherman, and, somehow, an armadillo.

When Hap Collins saves the life of his employer's daughter, he is rewarded with a Caribbean Cruise, and he convinces his best friend Leonard Pine to come along. However, when the cruise sails on without them, stranding them in Playa del Carmen with nothing but their misfortune and Leonard's new ridiculous hat, the two quickly find themselves drawn into a vicious web of sordid violence. When they return to East Texas, they find that trouble has beaten them back, and when trouble's around it doesn't take long for Hap and Leonard to find it.

I continue to enjoy Hap and Leonard a lot. This is one of my favorites of the series with many laugh out loud moments. I actually feel like the series is getting better with each book. ( )

The usual good plot and great characters. Can't go wrong with Joe R Lansdale. ( )

I'm not sure whether I'm just getting tired of this series or my expectations were raised after reading his excellent stand-along novel "The Bottoms", or maybe this one just was a bit of a dud, but I'm going to have to stick with only 3 stars for this one. It had a lot of good lines and unusual phrases that are typical of the stories, but the violence was pretty horrific, with plenty of descriptions. This killer liked to really get into his work, often subjecting his victims to terrible tortures to get information. Cutting off a finger was just a minor little thing for him, and if he doesn't need information, he might only kill you quickly. So, he deserved to die, but our dynamic duo seemed to contribute somewhat to some of the deaths, although not knowingly.

I'll likely read more of the series in the future, but not right away. However, I'll look for some of his stand-alone books. ( )

I've seen Joe R Lansdale mentioned as a master storyteller. That pretty much sums it up. A great tale with great characters and as I have said previously, words don't get in the way of the story, they only add to the story. A master of his craft. ( )

Another barnstorming adventure featuring Hap and Leonard, Joe R. Lansdale's blue collar couling of white liberal anti-Vietnam war protester and black gay conservative Vietnam vet. Getting into more scrapes than strictly necessary, the ultra violence mixed with the sparkling dialogue make a great addition to any crime library.

In this entry, Hap stops a brutal bashing and is awarded a cruise for two as thanks. He takes Leonard but things soon go pearshaped as they are wont to do with these two. Lots of fun. ( )
