    ?Hokey Smoke Bullwinkle? Joe R. Lansdale?s new book ?Jack Rabbit Smile? certainly shows that the man is still capable of writing a compelling Hap and Leonard novel. The last few books have certainly not been up to par. They contained some good stuff, however not, in my humble...

    When a white supremicist and his mother show up at Brett's detective agency, Hap and Leonard are conflicted but agrees to track down Jackrabbit, the missing sister/daughter. Marvel Creek is on its way to being segregated and Hap and Leonard run afoul of The Professor, the mastermind be...

    Hap and Leonard return to Hap's hometown of Marvel Creek in Joe Lansdale's latest release JACKRABBIT SMILE. This time around our heroes are hired by a man and his mother to find their missing sister/daughter. The relationship between Hap, Leonard and Brett and their new clients isn'...

    Jackrabbit Smile is the 12th book in the Hap and Leonard series, but the first I have read. Now with your first time, you want it all to be special and gentle, with a lot of candles, patchouli incense, maybe some Barry White playing over the speakers and a fair amount of canoodling and...

    To be published by Mulholland Books on 27 March 2018 One of the best Hap and Leonard yarns in years. Our intrepid duo are hired by white supremacists to find a young woman who has gone missing. Technically, she had left home years before, but there has been no trace of her for months....

    After reading 13 novels and a handful of short stories and novellas about Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, I do not just feel like I know them . I'm feeling like I am a part of their East Texas town. Hap and Leonard would be the two guys my parents would tell me to steer clear of and the ...

    I felt like this one got back to the Hap and Leonard from a few years ago. Lots of one-liners and violence and who cares what the mystery is. The ending is a little anti climatic however. ...

    You really can't go wrong with Lansdale and his Hap and Leonard series. An always reliable good time. ...

    RIP My Feels. Jackrabbit Smile is a roller-coaster of a book, full of colorful, well-crafted characters. It has the same laugh-out-loud humor and the most natural-sounding dialogue a book can have. Although I had a suspicion in the back of my mind what the resolution would be, La...

    My first novel by Lansdale, won?t be my last. Fast plot and good story, short and to the point. Well done. ...

    A few hours well-spent studying the adventures of Hap and Leonard makes for a happy reader. Another good one....and that Leonard. ...

    I just love the Hap & Leonard stories. Joe R Lansdale, speaking as Hap, has a wonderful lyrical style, telling stories of horror, racism, poverty, revenge and true evil with a lyrical, poetic voice and laugh out loud dialogue as a bonus. I've now binge read them all and hope we get...

    The TV show might be canceled but the books go on, raucous and vulgar and violent but also tenderhearted and foerce in their anger at injustice and blind hatred. Hired, despite the unmissable presence of a homicidally disgusted Leonard, by a pair of white supremacists to find a mis...

    Another rollicking good ride with Hap and Leonard as the boys are hired to find a 20-something woman nicknamed "Jackrabbit". Along the way they encounter a bizarre preacher.....who talks about an even more bizarre preacher that he replaced, loads of racists, someone who calls himself P...

    ?Is this about Jackie or is it about black and white relations, and exactly why have we become the target for an ass whipping when we?re merely asking about a missing lady who turns out to be good at math and is a little kooky?? Well, that about sums up the plot to this here t...

    A good solid story, lots of twists and turns. Hap and Leonard have lots of run ins with bad folks while trying to find a young woman who's gone missing. The ending was definitely a surprise. I'm always a bit loath to give 3 stars, but that means I liked it - better than average. Ce...

    Joe Lansdale's Hap & Leonard's adventures tend to involve nasty, petty people doing nasty, petty things. They don't get caught up with master criminals and twisty, complicated plots. So, with this book, the eleventh novel in the series, the enjoyment for me comes mostly from spendi...

    Another outing for Hap & Leonard. Rinse and repeat pretty much but that's why these books have become my go-to comfort read, and in this outing Hap revisits his home town, Marvel Creek. I am queasy about the joy the boys display when commiting acts of violence and retribution. Hap ...

    I really loved this book. Hap, Brett Hap's wife and Leonard a black gay guy own a investigation company. A Pentecostal white supremacist group find this team and ask them to find their missing sister and daughter. There is a lot of action, racism, shooting and funny jokes that go on in...

    Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are one of my favorite dynamic duos. In Jackrabbit Smile they are hired by some real vermin to find said vermin's relative, "Jackrabbit" Mulhaney, who has gone missing. Working for white supremacist scumbags does not make anyone happy but when you are priva...

    Few things make me laugh like a Hap and Leonard's book, now mostly a big happy family who solves, crazy crimes. This one made no exception and I read it in one sitting and still stop to weep to some of the things "Leonard said". Sono poche le cose che mi fanno ridere quanto i libri ...

    ?Hokey Smoke Bullwinkle? Joe R. Lansdale?s new book ?Jack Rabbit Smile? certainly shows that the man is still capable of writing a compelling Hap and Leonard novel. The last few books have certainly not been up to par. They contained some good stuff, however not, in my humble...

    Jackrabbit Smile is the 12th book in the Hap and Leonard series, but the first I have read. Now with your first time, you want it all to be special and gentle, with a lot of candles, patchouli incense, maybe some Barry White playing over the speakers and a fair amount of canoodling and...

    To be published by Mulholland Books on 27 March 2018 One of the best Hap and Leonard yarns in years. Our intrepid duo are hired by white supremacists to find a young woman who has gone missing. Technically, she had left home years before, but there has been no trace of her for months....

    The TV show might be canceled but the books go on, raucous and vulgar and violent but also tenderhearted and foerce in their anger at injustice and blind hatred. Hired, despite the unmissable presence of a homicidally disgusted Leonard, by a pair of white supremacists to find a mis...

    A good solid story, lots of twists and turns. Hap and Leonard have lots of run ins with bad folks while trying to find a young woman who's gone missing. The ending was definitely a surprise. I'm always a bit loath to give 3 stars, but that means I liked it - better than average. Ce...

    Joe Lansdale's Hap & Leonard's adventures tend to involve nasty, petty people doing nasty, petty things. They don't get caught up with master criminals and twisty, complicated plots. So, with this book, the eleventh novel in the series, the enjoyment for me comes mostly from spendi...

    You don't read Joe R. Lansdale's Hap & Leonard novels for the twisty plot or the brain-puzzling mysteries. You read it for the colorful trash talk, mostly between Hap and Leonard, best friends forever despite being complete opposites. Hap is a straight white trash liberal, Leonard ...

    Another outing for Hap & Leonard. Rinse and repeat pretty much but that's why these books have become my go-to comfort read, and in this outing Hap revisits his home town, Marvel Creek. I am queasy about the joy the boys display when commiting acts of violence and retribution. Hap ...

    I really loved this book. Hap, Brett Hap's wife and Leonard a black gay guy own a investigation company. A Pentecostal white supremacist group find this team and ask them to find their missing sister and daughter. There is a lot of action, racism, shooting and funny jokes that go on in...

    Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are one of my favorite dynamic duos. In Jackrabbit Smile they are hired by some real vermin to find said vermin's relative, "Jackrabbit" Mulhaney, who has gone missing. Working for white supremacist scumbags does not make anyone happy but when you are priva...

    Few things make me laugh like a Hap and Leonard's book, now mostly a big happy family who solves, crazy crimes. This one made no exception and I read it in one sitting and still stop to weep to some of the things "Leonard said". Sono poche le cose che mi fanno ridere quanto i libri ...

    Lot of bad people in Texas. A good series which has become a bit formulaic and perfunctory. There used to be more of a balance between violence and romance and hope in these books. It?s just stripped down badness now - with wisecracks. A missing person leads to a criminal conspiracy ...

    This was a goodreads win. It was well written and I enjoyed this novel. It was fairly fast paced and had a very good story line. It did have some violence and racism in it, but for some reason I did find myself enjoying this book even though it isn't really my kind of book that I would...

    Gah! That was too short! Another great Hap and Leonard story. Hired by a racist mother and son to find their missing daughter/sister. And the hunt takes them to Hap's boyhood town, that has gone through some changes. Mostly at the hands of a segregationist. And they somehow find a w...

    I love the banter and the connect between these characters. Lansdale has this amazing way of writing that balances lightheartedness with seriousness. Most of this series shows not just that there is racism, but also how ironic those racists become when they are discriminated against ba...

    A new Hap and Leonard book, and "The Two-Bear Mambo" playing on Sundance. Life is good. Another fun outing with the boys looking for a missing person among some hard-core white supremacists in rural East Texas, with more of Lansdale's trademark earthy humor. Obviously, don't make...

    Another great Hap and Leonard adventure! I'm glad that Leonard is continuing to get stupid hats just to annoy Hap. My favorite might be the one he comes across in this book, even better than the deerstalker he had for a while. This one's a short one, even by H&L standards, but it's...

    A detective firm is hired to find a missing woman and soon the bodies start to pile up. The dialogue between the main characters was fast paced and very funny in places. The plot had plenty of twists and turns. Overall a very entertaining read. If you enjoy fast paced murder thri...

    Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are one of my favorite dynamic duos. In Jackrabbit Smile they are hired by some real vermin to find said vermin's relative, "Jackrabbit" Mulhaney, who has gone missing. Working for white supremacist scumbags does not make anyone happy but when you are priva...

    Few things make me laugh like a Hap and Leonard's book, now mostly a big happy family who solves, crazy crimes. This one made no exception and I read it in one sitting and still stop to weep to some of the things "Leonard said". Sono poche le cose che mi fanno ridere quanto i libri ...

    Lot of bad people in Texas. A good series which has become a bit formulaic and perfunctory. There used to be more of a balance between violence and romance and hope in these books. It?s just stripped down badness now - with wisecracks. A missing person leads to a criminal conspiracy ...

    This was a goodreads win. It was well written and I enjoyed this novel. It was fairly fast paced and had a very good story line. It did have some violence and racism in it, but for some reason I did find myself enjoying this book even though it isn't really my kind of book that I would...

    Gah! That was too short! Another great Hap and Leonard story. Hired by a racist mother and son to find their missing daughter/sister. And the hunt takes them to Hap's boyhood town, that has gone through some changes. Mostly at the hands of a segregationist. And they somehow find a w...

    I love the banter and the connect between these characters. Lansdale has this amazing way of writing that balances lightheartedness with seriousness. Most of this series shows not just that there is racism, but also how ironic those racists become when they are discriminated against ba...

    A new Hap and Leonard book, and "The Two-Bear Mambo" playing on Sundance. Life is good. Another fun outing with the boys looking for a missing person among some hard-core white supremacists in rural East Texas, with more of Lansdale's trademark earthy humor. Obviously, don't make...

    ?Hokey Smoke Bullwinkle? Joe R. Lansdale?s new book ?Jack Rabbit Smile? certainly shows that the man is still capable of writing a compelling Hap and Leonard novel. The last few books have certainly not been up to par. They contained some good stuff, however not, in my humble...

    Jackrabbit Smile is the 12th book in the Hap and Leonard series, but the first I have read. Now with your first time, you want it all to be special and gentle, with a lot of candles, patchouli incense, maybe some Barry White playing over the speakers and a fair amount of canoodling and...

    To be published by Mulholland Books on 27 March 2018 One of the best Hap and Leonard yarns in years. Our intrepid duo are hired by white supremacists to find a young woman who has gone missing. Technically, she had left home years before, but there has been no trace of her for months....

    After reading 13 novels and a handful of short stories and novellas about Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, I do not just feel like I know them . I'm feeling like I am a part of their East Texas town. Hap and Leonard would be the two guys my parents would tell me to steer clear of and the ...

    I felt like this one got back to the Hap and Leonard from a few years ago. Lots of one-liners and violence and who cares what the mystery is. The ending is a little anti climatic however. ...

    You really can't go wrong with Lansdale and his Hap and Leonard series. An always reliable good time. ...

    RIP My Feels. Jackrabbit Smile is a roller-coaster of a book, full of colorful, well-crafted characters. It has the same laugh-out-loud humor and the most natural-sounding dialogue a book can have. Although I had a suspicion in the back of my mind what the resolution would be, La...

    My first novel by Lansdale, won?t be my last. Fast plot and good story, short and to the point. Well done. ...

    A few hours well-spent studying the adventures of Hap and Leonard makes for a happy reader. Another good one....and that Leonard. ...

    I just love the Hap & Leonard stories. Joe R Lansdale, speaking as Hap, has a wonderful lyrical style, telling stories of horror, racism, poverty, revenge and true evil with a lyrical, poetic voice and laugh out loud dialogue as a bonus. I've now binge read them all and hope we get...

    The TV show might be canceled but the books go on, raucous and vulgar and violent but also tenderhearted and foerce in their anger at injustice and blind hatred. Hired, despite the unmissable presence of a homicidally disgusted Leonard, by a pair of white supremacists to find a mis...

    ?Is this about Jackie or is it about black and white relations, and exactly why have we become the target for an ass whipping when we?re merely asking about a missing lady who turns out to be good at math and is a little kooky?? Well, that about sums up the plot to this here t...

    A good solid story, lots of twists and turns. Hap and Leonard have lots of run ins with bad folks while trying to find a young woman who's gone missing. The ending was definitely a surprise. I'm always a bit loath to give 3 stars, but that means I liked it - better than average. Ce...

    Joe Lansdale's Hap & Leonard's adventures tend to involve nasty, petty people doing nasty, petty things. They don't get caught up with master criminals and twisty, complicated plots. So, with this book, the eleventh novel in the series, the enjoyment for me comes mostly from spendi...

    You don't read Joe R. Lansdale's Hap & Leonard novels for the twisty plot or the brain-puzzling mysteries. You read it for the colorful trash talk, mostly between Hap and Leonard, best friends forever despite being complete opposites. Hap is a straight white trash liberal, Leonard ...

    Another outing for Hap & Leonard. Rinse and repeat pretty much but that's why these books have become my go-to comfort read, and in this outing Hap revisits his home town, Marvel Creek. I am queasy about the joy the boys display when commiting acts of violence and retribution. Hap ...

    Hap and Leonard return to Hap's hometown of Marvel Creek in Joe Lansdale's latest release JACKRABBIT SMILE. This time around our heroes are hired by a man and his mother to find their missing sister/daughter. The relationship between Hap, Leonard and Brett and their new clients isn'...

    Jackrabbit Smile is the 12th book in the Hap and Leonard series, but the first I have read. Now with your first time, you want it all to be special and gentle, with a lot of candles, patchouli incense, maybe some Barry White playing over the speakers and a fair amount of canoodling and...

    To be published by Mulholland Books on 27 March 2018 One of the best Hap and Leonard yarns in years. Our intrepid duo are hired by white supremacists to find a young woman who has gone missing. Technically, she had left home years before, but there has been no trace of her for months....

    After reading 13 novels and a handful of short stories and novellas about Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, I do not just feel like I know them . I'm feeling like I am a part of their East Texas town. Hap and Leonard would be the two guys my parents would tell me to steer clear of and the ...

    I felt like this one got back to the Hap and Leonard from a few years ago. Lots of one-liners and violence and who cares what the mystery is. The ending is a little anti climatic however. ...

    You really can't go wrong with Lansdale and his Hap and Leonard series. An always reliable good time. ...

    RIP My Feels. Jackrabbit Smile is a roller-coaster of a book, full of colorful, well-crafted characters. It has the same laugh-out-loud humor and the most natural-sounding dialogue a book can have. Although I had a suspicion in the back of my mind what the resolution would be, La...

    My first novel by Lansdale, won?t be my last. Fast plot and good story, short and to the point. Well done. ...

    A few hours well-spent studying the adventures of Hap and Leonard makes for a happy reader. Another good one....and that Leonard. ...

    I just love the Hap & Leonard stories. Joe R Lansdale, speaking as Hap, has a wonderful lyrical style, telling stories of horror, racism, poverty, revenge and true evil with a lyrical, poetic voice and laugh out loud dialogue as a bonus. I've now binge read them all and hope we get...

    The TV show might be canceled but the books go on, raucous and vulgar and violent but also tenderhearted and foerce in their anger at injustice and blind hatred. Hired, despite the unmissable presence of a homicidally disgusted Leonard, by a pair of white supremacists to find a mis...

    Another rollicking good ride with Hap and Leonard as the boys are hired to find a 20-something woman nicknamed "Jackrabbit". Along the way they encounter a bizarre preacher.....who talks about an even more bizarre preacher that he replaced, loads of racists, someone who calls himself P...

    ?Is this about Jackie or is it about black and white relations, and exactly why have we become the target for an ass whipping when we?re merely asking about a missing lady who turns out to be good at math and is a little kooky?? Well, that about sums up the plot to this here t...

    A good solid story, lots of twists and turns. Hap and Leonard have lots of run ins with bad folks while trying to find a young woman who's gone missing. The ending was definitely a surprise. I'm always a bit loath to give 3 stars, but that means I liked it - better than average. Ce...

    Joe Lansdale's Hap & Leonard's adventures tend to involve nasty, petty people doing nasty, petty things. They don't get caught up with master criminals and twisty, complicated plots. So, with this book, the eleventh novel in the series, the enjoyment for me comes mostly from spendi...

    You don't read Joe R. Lansdale's Hap & Leonard novels for the twisty plot or the brain-puzzling mysteries. You read it for the colorful trash talk, mostly between Hap and Leonard, best friends forever despite being complete opposites. Hap is a straight white trash liberal, Leonard ...

    Another outing for Hap & Leonard. Rinse and repeat pretty much but that's why these books have become my go-to comfort read, and in this outing Hap revisits his home town, Marvel Creek. I am queasy about the joy the boys display when commiting acts of violence and retribution. Hap ...

    I really loved this book. Hap, Brett Hap's wife and Leonard a black gay guy own a investigation company. A Pentecostal white supremacist group find this team and ask them to find their missing sister and daughter. There is a lot of action, racism, shooting and funny jokes that go on in...

    Hap and Leonard are not your run of the mill detecting duo. Hap is a straight guy with a bad attitude, and Leonard is a gay black Vietnam vet with a temper. They have been friends all their lives, and they operate outside the law in often violent attempts to punish wrongdoers who would...

    Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are one of my favorite dynamic duos. In Jackrabbit Smile they are hired by some real vermin to find said vermin's relative, "Jackrabbit" Mulhaney, who has gone missing. Working for white supremacist scumbags does not make anyone happy but when you are priva...

    Few things make me laugh like a Hap and Leonard's book, now mostly a big happy family who solves, crazy crimes. This one made no exception and I read it in one sitting and still stop to weep to some of the things "Leonard said". Sono poche le cose che mi fanno ridere quanto i libri ...

    Lot of bad people in Texas. A good series which has become a bit formulaic and perfunctory. There used to be more of a balance between violence and romance and hope in these books. It?s just stripped down badness now - with wisecracks. A missing person leads to a criminal conspiracy ...
