3.0 out of 5 stars Mucho Mambo, 5 Mar. 2007
This review is from: The Two-Bear Mambo (Paperback)
Hap and Leonard are back and this time they are not invincible. Even the mighty duo can not compete against an entire town of racist red necks, can they? When they are asked by a friend to investigate the disappearance of a young black women Hap and Leonard go to a small Texan town that still feels like the 50s were the Klan still holds power. This would not prove an issue if they manage to keep their heads down, but do you think an out spoken 6ft gay black man would go unnoticed?

'The Two-bear Mambo' is another strong book in the Hap and Leonard series of books and is as funny as any book that Lansdale had written. His writing style uses such great dialogue that the plot sometimes takes second place. Unfortunately for this book the plot is not quite strong enough to be masked by the characters. Overall very little happens as Lansdale concentrates on character development rather than story.

For fans of the books this novel may prove a revelation as our heroes views on life change dramatically due to events in the book. However, I found the direction the book took a little depressing and that too much time was dwelt on exploring the relationship of Hap and Leonard and not enough on the case. I do believe for some that this book may prove an enlightening experience, but for me, and readers new to the series, it was a funny but ultimately plotless story that was an average read.
