Honky Tonk Samurai
By Joe R. Lansdale
THE BASIS OF THE SERIES ON SUNDANCETV.
Only Hap and Leonard would catch a cold case with hot cars, hot women, and ugly skinheads.
“Listening to a Joe R. Lansdale’s East Texas detective yarn in the Hap Collins-and-Leonard Pine series is like hanging out with a skilled barroom raconteur. Lansdale’s language dances with colorful and regular profanity as he performs a shotgun wedding between wild and ridiculous, tying it together with enough cartoonish violence and abundant wit to send you reaching for your wallet to buy the next round. . . . Altogether it’s wild, funny, utterly improbable and thoroughly satisfying entertainment.”―Jenni Laidman, Chicago Tribune
“Audacious . . . Honky Tonk Samurai lives up to the rich legacy of the titles that preceded it in Lansdale’s Hap and Leonard series. . . . It takes a masterful writer to pull off what Lansdale accomplishes in these books, combining humor, nihilism and absurdism along with sublime plotting and character development. It reads as if it’s done effortlessly, and that’s no small trick.”―W.K. Stratton, Dallas Morning News
