If you have read the two previous books in this series, you know what to expect. Lansdale writes fun characters, and has a great turn of phrase.
Narrator Phil Gigante is fantastic. He makes each characters voice unique, and you can tell he is having a great time with this material. If you haven't read any Hap and Leonard novels before, start at the beginning with 'Savage Season.' If you are returning, then be happy to know that this is another great entry in the series.

Some Days You Get the Bear...
Some days the bear gets you!
Well, Leonard Pine, the gay conservative african american best friend of hippie Hap Collins has really done it now. He's gone and burned down the drug den he lives next to...again. Matter of fact this is something like the third time he's done it. You'd think the police would stop caring after awhile. This time, though, Lieutenant Marvin Hanson intends to throw the book at Leonard. Unless, that is, Hap would be willing to do the Lt. a small favor.
All Hap has to do is take a trip down to Grovetown where the Klan and other unsavory intolerant jerkwads run things to look into the disappearance of Florida Grange the beautiful, tough as nails, no nonsense (and also black) lawyer who just happens to be the ex lover of both Hap and Lt. Hanson. Of course, Leonard (a man with a somewhat confrontational attitude from time to time) refuses to let his best friend go it alone. And down in this evil little crap town Hap and Leonard will be tested like never before.
Champion Mojo Storyteller Joe R Lansdale hits a home run in what is one of my favorite of his novels. You want hijinks? Done! Action? You got it! Intrigue? Yessir! You heard it here first (well' you did if you read this review first): Hap and Leonard Vs. a whole town of backwards racist good ol' boys. But who really disappeared Florida, and does it have anything to do with the untimely death of blues legend Bobby Joe Soothe's grandson?
