Format: Paperback
SAVAGE SEASON by Joe R. Lansdale is the first novel in the "Hap Collins/Leonard Pine" series and clearly demonstrates the path to be taken by these utterly outrageous, yet definably noble characters. As the novel starts out, Hap and Leonard are doing okay. They have steady jobs in the rose fields and are taking a day off to shoot some skeet in the field behind Hap's house. Yep, everything is going pretty good until trouble walks around the corner of the house in the form of Trudy (Hap's ex-wife). Now, I don't know if Mr. Lansdale ever met my ex-girlfriend, but his description of Trudy fits her like a tight pair of spandex pants. Every time Trudy steps back into Hap's life and then leaves him again, it takes several months for him to recover. Needless to say, Leonard hates this lady for the way she treats his best friend. Anyway, Trudy has what appears to be a sweet deal for her loving ex-husband. It seems that one of her other ex-husbands, Howard, was in jail with a man who'd helped to rob a bank of one million dollars. All of the bank robber's cohorts were killed during or after the crime, and he almost bought the farm himself when he crashed his getaway boat into a submerged tree stump somewhere along the Sabine River. The money was never recovered, and the bank robber got life in prison. He gave Howard a general location of where he thought the sunken boat might be, hoping that if Howard were able to find the money, he'd share some of it with him to make his stay in prison a little easier. Since Hap knows the Sabine River like the back of his hand (well, maybe not quite that good), Trudy enlists Hap's help in locating the boat, offering him $200,000.00 for his services.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
The first in an amazing series involving Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, two most unlikely heroes (though heroes they are). The author performs a powerful magic that transforms a tale with a violent twist about characters that are theoretically undesireable into something unique and hard to put down or forget. Furthermore, should you never laugh out loud when reading this and don't feel moved to buy one of the other Hap & Leonard books I'll be surprised. The story, set in East Texas, is about a treasure hunt, Hap's old girl and much more. Caveat: this is perhaps the weakest of the series, even so it gets 5 stars.

One time hippy idealist, turned full~time wise assed trouble~maker, Hap Collins, is paid a visit from his ex~wife. The reason being so that he might aid her in finding a very cool million dollars of long forgotten bank job money, sunk in the depths of the freezing cold waters of The Bottoms years before. Having grown up in the area and been promised a sizeable share, (not to mention the hope Hap still holds for rekindling a more permanent reunion with his ex) naturally he agrees, but only if his tough, sarcastic, Vietnam vet buddy, Leonard, can come along to help, 50/50 on his share.

Reluctantly she accepts, but with the dangerous winter chill already in full force, a misguided gang of sixties revolutionaries, about to make the worst move of their lives playing Robin Hood and Leonard already missing his dogs and vanilla cookies, they are gonna need more than a little luck to get out of this one alive...

First in a brilliant series of novels featuring the wise cracking, good guy, kung fu bad asses Hap and Leonard, from author Joe R Lansdale.
I first read this back in the late nineties and I've read everything featuring these two ever since. Packed full of great dialogue, weird Texan characters, morality and good ol brutal violence, these books are an absolute blast and come very highly recommended from this reviewer. This is by no means the best in the series, mostly setting the tone for what is to come in later novels, but with that said, this is still a very entertaining read. 4.5/5

If I am not mistaken, this first Hap & Leonard novel is by far the shortest in the series (I'm discounting novellas and short stories) but you get your moneys worth anyway. The story is fairly simple so I won't go into it, but it's streamlined, engaging, full of distinctive personalities and great banter/dialogue between our two heroes. As usual, there's a philosophical engagement lightly examined somewhere in the book, but as usual we're not fed much anything we didn't ask for.

Lansdale's background as, among other things, a writer of horror fiction manifests in some greatly menacing scenes, including a chase, later in the book, but he also seems to have taken a leaf out of the Gregory McDonald school of Humourous Crime Fiction, with lengthy dialogue driven passages, very economical storytelling, and riveting characterisation (not to mention the humour). Plus, the books manage to capture that perfect, romanticised Texas, and the less-than-perfect poverty, racism and ignorance that also appear in that fine state.

It's not the best book in the series but you can read it in a few hours (don't start near the evening!) and it leads fairly well into Mucho Mojo, the better known second book in the series!
