In Edgar Award winner Joe R. Lansdale’s newest Hap and Leonard story collection, the boys are back with more righteous ass-kickings, highly improbable adventures, and disastrous fishing trips. These never before collected tales showcase the popular not-so dynamic duo who are little bit older, but not a whole lot wiser—Hap and Leonard were truly born for trouble.
When you meet him, Hap Collins seems like just a good ol’ boy. But even in his misspent youth, his best pal was Leonard Pine: black, gay, and the ultimate outsider. Together, they have sort of found their way as partners in crime-solving—and at least as often, as hired muscle.
As Hap wrestles with his new identity as a husband and father, and Leonard finds love in a long-term relationship, the boys continue their crime-solving shenanigans. They grapple with a stolen stuffed dog, uncover the sordid secret of a missing bookmobile, compete in a warped version of the Most Dangerous Game, regroup after Hap’s visit to the psychologist goes terribly awry, and much more.
So sit yourself back and settle in—Born for Trouble: The Further Adventures of Hap and Leonard is East Texas mayhem as only the master mojo storyteller Lansdale could possibly tell.
