Fans of author Joe Lansdaleâ€™s Hap and Leonard series will not be disappointed in the latest novel, DEVIL RED. For those unfamiliar with the series (and itâ€™s not necessary to read them in sequence in order to understand whatâ€™s going on), Hap and Leonard are two East Texas, tough working-class men who make a dubious living through various odds jobs. Hap, the narrator of the tales is white, and his sidekick Leonard is gay and black. Their friendship is firmly deep-rooted, and yet they often approach problems from different angles. Basically these are “buddy” books set against the backdrop of dark crime which is alleviated by outrageous humor. If Hap and Leonard ever tried their hand at show biz, theyâ€™d make great stand-up comics.
If you like novels that are riveting, wildly profane and yet strangely profound, then welcome to VANILLA RIDE, the latest novel in the Hap & Leonard series from author Joe Lansdale, and if you havenâ€™t read one of his novels yet, then what are you waiting for?
