Product Description

Product Description

Hyenas marks the always-welcome return of Joe R. Lansdale’s most indelible fictional creations: Hap Collins and Leonard Pine. Once again, the embattled but resilient duo find themselves enmeshed in a web of danger, duplicity, and escalating mayhem. The result is a tightly compressed novella that is at once harrowing, hilarious, and utterly impossible to put down.

The story begins with a barroom brawl that is both brutal and oddly comic. The ensuing drama encompasses abduction, betrayal, robbery, and murder, ending with a lethal confrontation in an East Texas pasture. Along the way, readers are treated to moments of raucous, casually profane humor and to scenes of vivid, crisply described violence, all related in that unmistakable Lansdale voice. An essential addition to an already imposing body of work, Hyenas shows us both the author and his signature characters at their inimitable best. It doesn’t get better than this.

Hyenas also includes the bonus Hap Collins short story, “The Boy Who Became Invisible”.

I loved the story, the characters and how it built up to the exciting end. Wish it was longer because I didn't want it to end

5.0 out of 5 stars Hap and Leonard kick off again 20 Jun 2013
By Mr. R. D. Turner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This novella starts off with Leonard being arrested for putting down 3 guys who attacked him. This bit is pretty brutal but at the same time it is unbelievably funny. Joe R Lansdale not only has an ear for dialogue but a superb sense of gallows humour. From then it is the usual story of the boys treading on the wrong side of the law to do good deeds.

There is a great twist in the final third of the story and a satisfactory conclusion. Brilliant fun an I await the next one eagerly. Also check out Dead Aim as well which is the Novella published a year after this one.
