Booklist called them "two of the unlikeliest but most likable amateur detectives in crime fiction." The Chicago Tribune describes them as "colorful... lunatic... like a twister." They're Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, and if you've been reading Joe R. Lansdale's Hap & Leonard novels – like Mucho Mojo, The Two-Bear Mambo, and Rumble Tumble – then this is the treat you've been waiting for. If you're one of the fools who hasn't yet come around, then what you have here is just the antidote to wise you up.
All told, it's over 150 pages of great reading!
