Overview

Hap and Leonard investigate a racially motivated murder that threatens to tear apart their East Texas town. Hap, a former 60s activist and self-proclaimed white trash rebel, is recovering from a life-threatening stab wound. He's hoping to take it easy, but then Louise Elton arrives with a job... Months earlier, a bully cop pulled over and sexually harassed Louise's daughter, Charm. When he started stalking her, her brother Jamar tried to get evidence on him. The next thing Louise knew, Jamar got in a fight and was killed by local hoods. It doesn't add up: he was a straight-A student, destined for better things, until he began to ask too many questions about the racist police force. Leonard, a tough black gay Vietnam vet and Republican, joins Hap in the investigation, and they stumble upon the racial divides that have shaped their Eastern Texas town. But if anyone can navigate these pitfalls and bring the killers to justice, it's them. Filled with Lansdale's trademark snappy dialogue, colourful characters, and relentless pacing, RUSTY PUPPY is Joe Lansdale at his page-turning best.

Reviews

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