Hap Collins, chicken plant guard, saves a young woman's life, and her father, owner of the chicken plant, rewards him with a large cash bonus. Hap and his best friend, Leonard Pine, head for a cruise to Mexico and the Caribbean. Not matching up to the exacting dress code of the on-board lobster restaurant, Leonard soon causes the pair to be abandoned in Mexico.There they are saved from knife-wielding policemen by a geriatric fisherman and his daughter, Beatrice. But try as he might, Hap can't seem to stay out of other people's business. Beatrice's past returns to haunt her in the shape of a Mexican mobster and threatens to drag Hap, and all those closest to him, into further violence.More

Love that Texas milieu kind of story
Goodhearted, funny and violent
Yeah, this one sped by. Course it was my shortest audio book. But it really was a good plot.
All the voices seemed like Texas to me!
I remember there was a moving bit somewhere and I may have shed a tear but I can't remember what the hell it was. Someone dying or saying goodbye probably.
If you like Lansdale books you gotta love James Crumley and you Audible folks oughta sign him up pronto.
