First Leonard and Hap novel. Not that impressed. The story is okay. The characters are endearing, exasperating, and annoying in turn. The element that keeps the reader engaged is the Lansdale humor - this is also what bumped the book up to three stars.

There's also the depiction of most southerners as racists and homophobes. I see this a lot and it has grown tiresome for me.

Still a Lansdale fan, but I won't be reading a Leonard and Hap any time soon.
