Here comes Trudy back into Hap's life, thirty-six but looking ten years younger, with long blonde hair and legs that begin under her chin, and the kind of walk that'll make a man run his car off the road.

Hap and Leonard are such well-drawn, and likable, characters, and the dialogue always makes me laugh out loud (which is saying something) that I can't help but to enjoy these books. I prefer Lansdale's crazier stuff (The Adventures of Ned the Seal), but these will do just fine.
