Hap is of course going to be there for his best friend and offers to help clean Uncle Chester’s dilapidated house, they uncover a dark little secret beneath the house’s rotting floor boards – a small skeleton buried in a trunk. Hap wants to call the police. Leonard being a black man in east Texas, persuades him this is not a good idea, and together they set out to clear Chester’s name on their own. The only things standing in their way is a houseful of felons, a vicious killer, and possibly themselves. "Lansdale's prose has the mean terseness of James M. Cain...Welds the grungy nihilism of pulp to the delibrate exaggerations of the tall tale." - Newsday "Like 10-alarm chili, Lansdale is pretty hot stuff." - People

Review:

In the second installment of the Hap Collins-Leonard Pine series, Leonard is still recuperating from the injuries he suffered in the first book (Savage Season) when he learns that his Uncle Chester has died. Hap agrees to stay with Leonard and help clean out the rundown house that he's inherited; when they find a small skeleton buried under the floor, it's up to them to prove that Chester wasn't responsible for a string of child murders by finding the real killer.

Lansdale slowly develops the relationship between his two protagonists as they banter with each other throughout their pursuit of the killers. Mucho Mojo also introduces two other characters, LaBorde Police Department members Lieutenant Marvin Hanson and his sidekick, Charlie, who serve as ongoing sources of friction--and, when it's most needed, support.
