Format: Paperback
This is the second, and for me, absolute best Hap and Leonard Story Joe R. Lansdale has written. While Savage Season was a little thin and tentative (albeit with a great cast) Mucho Mojo pipes the formula full of life. Mixing wry, dry humour (Hap and Leonard's throwaway dialogue is pricelessly real) and dead-pan horrific violence (in this case child murder) is no mean feat to pull off but Lansdale does it with style, grace and ease. The small town eccentricities and obsessions of East Texas are nicely portrayed in the hypocritical religious fanaticism of the First Primitive Baptist church or in the resilient character of old MeMaw. Particularly, Lansdale lends the amateur detective story a narrative logic in keeping with the laid-back setting. Things bowl along at their own pace with frequent breaks to reshingle the roof, make love to a woman, or eat a mess o' biscuits. This whole series is brilliantly compelling from beginning to end, but Mucho Mojo marks the high point for me.

I usually recommend people new to Joe R. Lansdale to read some
of his one of a kind short stories. Its the best way to appreciate his humor but this novel is such a great book it really doesn't matter. MUCHO MOJO was the first JOE R.LANSDALE I had come across back in the mid 90's and after reading this I knew I had found a writer
with so many sides to him I couldn't wait to find everything
he's written and to this day I still seek out his wonderful
writings, even back to the early 80's. His latest novels have
a maturity and skill you only get from living in a world he often writes about or hearing stories past down from family & friends - East, Texas USA. Mucho Mojo is a classic example of Joe' writing style and will leave you not only in
stitches but also chilled by his narratives-- always in awe of this fantastic
Texas writer. Hap and Leonard novels are ALL great novels and two of the most unusal characters to come out of the mystery
field in years. I do recommend you read all Hap and Leonard adventures, but, MUCHO MOJO is special to me, most
people that start reading Joe's books will get hooked!

Format: Paperback
Lansdale is a master story teller in so many genres. This was the first piece of work I read and it remains his best. The subject matter is dark and disturbing (as is usually the case with Lansdale), but he handles it brilliantly, with horror, suspense and humour used always to the right degree and in the right place.
Hap and Leonard are the perfect partnership, and when they are combined with a large legacy from Leonard's Uncle consisting of a house and 100,000 dollars, it is inevitable that there will be a child's skeleton and pornography buried in the foundations.
The unravelling of the story is handled deftly, with one eye on suspense and the other on entertainment. It certainly delivers on both counts.
My only concern? Is East Texas really filled with such madness as this? Suspend your disbelief and enjoy one of the best storytellers writing today, in any (or all) genres.

I think Wayne's review pretty much sums up this
excellent story. NOBODY writes like JOE R.LANSDALE
and this was my first experience reading one of
Joe's novels (1995), I was just minding my own business browsing
in the bookstore, when I came apon this book cover (which over in England, is different),I like the
USA cover better on this one and to be honest
with you, reading this book opened up a place I had not
been to in many years, just sitting and enjoying
a fast paced roller coaster ride of a book with
so much attidude, chilling, funny yet right in your face! I did not think
anyone wrote like this. After years of reading
Stephen King, John Farris, Anne Rice, John Coyne, and so many other great horror/mystery/dark fantasy writers to name a few,
I found a writer who could chill, thrill, and also
write a great mystery, and
make you laugh so hard but still
care about the characters in this book
and make you want to read MORE! JOE R. LANSDALE
remains my favorite and more than deserved the
Edgar Award (Best Mystery 2001) he just received for his fantastic
lastest novel "THE BOTTOMS" here in the states.

Format: Paperback
The third novel in the "Hap Collins/Leonard Pine" series by Joe R. Lansdale is MUCHO MOJO. The title basically translates into "very bad magic" or "evil," while the story itself deals with the actual evil that human beings are capable of perpetrating. The novel begins when Leonard's Uncle Chester passes away and leaves his house and a hundred thousand dollars to his nephew. Leonard decides to stay in his late uncle's house in order to fix it up and talks Hap into moving in with him to help with the repairs. Everything is running smoothly until they rip up some old floorboards and discover a trunk beneath the house that has the bones of a murdered child in it, along with magazines of kiddy porn. At first they think that Uncle Chester was the culprit who killed the child, but as they probe deeper into the mystery it soon becomes apparent that LaBorde, Texas has a serial killer living within its midst...a person who is still alive and has been killing children for the last nine years. If that isn't enough, next door to Leonard's new home is a crack house, occupied by drug dealers who don't particularly like their new neighbors, but do like selling drugs to kids. This has all of the makings of a keg of black powder ready to explode; and, when it does, you definitely don't want to be on the receiving end of Hap and Leonard's anger! Needless to say, the East Texas duo will have their hands full as they do battle on two different fronts, taking names, kicking butt, and driving stakes into the hearts of the human monsters that are killing LaBorde's children. MUCHO MOJO delivers the same powerful kick of fun and entertainment as the other books in this utterly addictive series, but there's much more to this novel than meets the eye.Read more ›
