9781501297052: Bad Chili: A Hap and Leonard Novel (Hap and Leonard Series)

With his trademark knack for gut-busting laughter and head-splitting action, Joe R. Lansdale serves up a bubbling cauldron of murder and mayhem that only he could create.

Hap Collins has just returned home from a gig working on an off shore oil rig. With a new perspective on life, Hap wants to change the way he’s living, and shoot the straight and narrow. That is until the man who stole Leonard Pine’s boyfriend turns up headless in a ditch and Leonard gets fingered for the murder. Hap vows to clear Leonard’s name, but things only get more complicated when Leonard’s ex shows up dead. To the police it is just a matter of gay-biker infighting, but to Hap and Leonard murder is always serious business, and these hit a little too close to home.

“Colorful...Lunatic...Like a twister Lansdale’s book has a lot of energy.” –Chicago Tribune

“One of publishing’s best kept secrets.” –Dallas Morning News

Review:

"Don't you get a little tired working so hard to be folksy?" Hap Collins asks a colorful, clod-kicking private eye named Jim Bob Luke. "Naw," Jim Bob tells him. "I figure it's kind of an edge. People don't know what you're really thinking. They think you're just a shallow good ole boy." Nobody would ever think that about Collins, who looks like a long-haired '70s dropout and is seriously worried about the quality of his life. With his best buddy Leonard Pine--who aside from being black and gay is extremely tough and nasty in a firefight--Hap goes after the biker who first stole and then killed Pine's boyfriend. Jim Bob also gets involved in the chase, which converges on a corrupt local chili entrepreneur and a totally convincing Texas tornado. Two other Hap Collins books, Mucho Mojo and The Two-Bear Mambo, are available in paperback.
