Hap and Leonard are back and creating chaos all over East Texas. After their encounter with Vanilla Ride, they now face an even more deadly assassin, Devil Red. Marvin Hanson has started a detective agency and he hires Hap and Leonard to investigate the murder of two young people in a park. As Hap and Leonard work on the case, they uncover links to multiple murders all over the country and determine a serial killer is on the loose, signing his work with a painted red devil's face. Leonard is wearing a deerstalker hat and Hap is pondering on his life. I adore Joe R. Lansdale's musings on life behind the Pine Curtain, mortality and weird people. Read these books if you want to laugh out loud while wincing at how close to the bone he cuts.
