The Barnes & Noble Review 'Man this was something. An East Texas bouncer, a black queer, a ex-sweet potato queen, a six-foot-four overweight retired hit man and former reverend, and a redheaded midget with an attitude. The only thing we needed to top our wagon off were a couple of used-car salesmen, a monkey and an organ grinder.' With a cast of characters like that, you know you're in Joe R. Lansdale territory. Lansdale, despite unanimous critical acclaim and a cult following to die for, remains crime fiction's best kept secret. The most beloved of his many novels belong to his series that revolves around the soft-spoken bouncer Hap Collins and his rowdy gay sidekick Leonard Pine, reluctant heroes in Lansdale's darkly funny world. Their latest adventure, Rumble Tumble, is a little more lighthearted than previous outings (particularly the brilliant Bad Chili) but remains one of the year's most important releases.While Bad Chili focuses on Leonard's love life (or lack thereof), Rumble Tumble turns its attention towards Brett Sawyer, the hot-tempered, tough-talking, red-headed knockout that is currently Hap's flame. Just when Hap and Brett's relationship is coming to a pivotal turn in the road, word comes to Brett — via a gun-wielding backstabbing midget named Red — that her daughter Tillie is in trouble. And this, being a Lansdale novel, is Trouble with a capital 'T.' Red, it seems, was Tillie's pimp, helping her climb the corporate ladder in the wonderful world of hooking. But a few bad judgment calls by both Red and Tillie have ended with Red roughed up and Tilliesentoff to become a personal plaything for 'The Farm' — a Mexican complex for a hundred or so hulking, Nazi-esque motorcycle-riding, killers with a penchant for sex, drugs, and dead prostitutes. And Brett, with the help of Hap, Leonard, and Red's murderer-turned-preacher brother Herman,

4.0 Rumble Tumble by Joe R. Lansdale
GR Cleanup Read in 2011 Hap and Leonard, the two unlikeliest pair of best buds I’ve ever met in fiction, are back for another violent adventure filled with unexpected twists, lots of blood and gushy gore and enough offensive jokes to offend just about everyone. But that’s why we love ‘em.Hap’s con...

I've said before that Lansdale's writing style is what makes him unique, and why I enjoy reading him. That East Texas Redneck Gothic fiction that he writes is in a class all its own, where the weirdness will hit you long before the mystery, and his dialogue will snap like a turtle dredged up from t...

This fifth installment of the Hap and Leonard novels is as rude, crude, and funny as the others. As Lansdale explores the seamier side of America, notably East Texas with a detour to Oklahoma, his new topics include white slavery, Mexican motorcycle gangs, and midget abuse....LOTS of midget abuse.
