Captains Outrageous: A Hap and Leonard Novel (6) (Hap and Leonard #6)
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....more
The guys have new careers as security guards at the local chicken processing plant. As Hap is leaving work one night he breaks up an attack on a young woman by a drug crazed maniac. (The fight scene is Lansdale at his best. I didn’t know whether to laugh or scream as I read it.) Usually good dee ...more
This is my third read of Captains Outrageous but the first time in over a decade so it was like a completely new book.
Captains Outrageous sees Hap and Leonard going up against a Mexican loanshark and his goons. It also brings the crew back together with Jim Bob Luke, Marvin Hanson, Charlie Blank, and Veil. U ...more
Hap and Leonard have been in some pretty bad situations over the years but nothing can prepare them for the open seas. After Hap gets a sizeable reward for saving a teenage girl from a tweaked out murderer, he decides to go on a cruise ship vacation with Leonard. But rather than the restful trip they had planned, they end up on the cruise from hell and find themselves balls-deep in trouble as usual, when their ship leaves them stranded in a Mexican beachtown.
One weird thing that stoo ...more
A lot of suspense, a shi†-load of fun, a slew of horribly good one-liners, unending thrills, enough action for even the most impatient of readers, beatings galore, tons of shi†-talk and a worthy addition to the series.
Though it might be just a butt-hair short of being as outstanding as the 5 previous books, no one and I mean no one writes like Lansdale or as good as Lansdale and why I give this a 5 star rating.
This one's got Hap & Leonard heading to Mexico on vacation after Hap receives a l ...more
On the occasion of this mis-adventure, setting out with a cruise ship, Collins and Pine get lost in Mexico.
The plot is by far not as elaborated as in the other novels of this series, seems to have been welded together in a hurry, but still working perfectly as a platform for the entertaining dialogues and divert ...more
This catches me up with the Hap and Leonard series of thrillers from this author. I wasn’t paying attention, and Lansdale slipped a couple of his novels by me. Again, this episode features the antics and adventures of our fearless duo, Hap Collins and Leonard Pine. As the story opens, we find our two heros working as security guards at a chicken processing plant. It’s the end of the shift, and they are leaving for the day. Hap had to hang back t ...more
Reluctant at first, he finally agrees and Leonard and he take a cruise. When they run into a snooty waiter on the ship, Leonard is his usual charmi ...more
Hap Collins is rewarded for saving the young girl's life, and he and his best friend Leonard (foolishly)decide to take a cruise. Hap & Leonard aren't exactly the type to enjo ...more
Hap Collins isn't doing too hot. His home has been destroyed by a tornado, his lady love is giving him the cold shoulder, and he's working the dead end job of Security Guard at a local chicken plant. But all that changes when he stumbles across a horrible assault in the parking lot and manages to save a young woman's life.
Sesto episodio della serie, Capitani Oltraggiosi ha i pregi (tanti) e i difetti (pochi) degli episodi precedenti: i famosi dialoghi cazzeggianti in salsa Tarantino, la spregiudicatezza verbale e i comportamenti “uncorrect” e sopra le righe, le pause dell’azione alternate a scoppi di violenza talmente eccessiva e oltre i limiti da richiamare un certo tipo di splatter comics.
Qui, a dire il vero, dopo un’inizio promettente e originale che porta i protagonisti a un’improbabile crocie ...more
