Inhaltsangabe

Hap Collins has just returned home from a gig working on an off-shore oil rig. With a new perspective on life, Hap wants to change the way he's living, and shoot the straight and narrow. That is, until the man who stole Leonard Pine's boyfriend turns up headless in a ditch and Leonard gets fingered for the murder.

Hap vows to clear Leonard's name, but things only get more complicated when Leonard's ex shows up dead, too. o the police, it is just a matter of gay-biker infighting, but to Hap and Leonard, murder is always serious business, and these hit a little too close to home.

Great Narration, improperly developed storyline.

I enjoyed the great Narration, and the interaction between the various characters. But the main plot left much to be desired.

Keep this Book from your Wife

Leonard created with Hap and Leonard an incredibly funny and unusual pair of heroes, Hap, a middle aged hippy, unconventional, but with his own ethics and values and his friend Leonard, a big black guy, strong and honest and gay.

OK, if by chance a woman is stumbling on one of Lansdale's 'Hap and Leonard' novels, I have to give them a fair warning.
1. This book is an honest book, men really are like that
2. Don't get offended by the language, men like to talk like that
3. If a man has a real friend, he will be that close to him, probably closer than he will ever get to his wife.

The story itself touches on some serious issues, intolerance and racism in small town Texas, domestic violence, corruption and incompetence in the legal system. Even if the storyline is not that unusual, the way it is told. makes it a real page turner.

Leonard's former lover gets killed and together with Hap and Jim Bob, a private eye and quite a character, they try to find the murderer and by doing so, unravel a complex network of crime.

This book is funny and entertaining, but most of all, it rings true and if you are not a prude and stuck up, you will love it.

... schlechtestes H?rbuch ?berhaupt

Ja, ich h?re gerne englische Krimis und ja, es darf dabei auch deftig zugehen. Aber hinter der hier verwendeten vordergr?ndig coolen Sprache verbirgt sich nichts anderes als Stumpfsinn und Langeweile. Ich wei? nicht, wie oft das Wort 'Fuck' verwendet wird, aber bestimmt mindestens 10 mal pro Minute, g?hn. Ach so, ja, es gibt auch NOCH interessantere W?rter, wie 'cunt' und 'dick', die zwar insgesamt fast ebenso h?ufig verwendet werden, aber genauso wenig zum wirklichen Verst?ndnis oder zum Plot beitragen, also: Finger weg, lieber Gangsta-Rap h?ren, das ist niveauvoller.
