In this rollicking, rollercoaster ride of a novel, Hap Collins and Leonard Pine take a break from their day jobs to search for Florida Grange, Leonard's drop-dead gorgeous lawyer and Hap's former lover, who has vanished in the Klan-infested East Texas town of Grovetown. Before she disappeared, Florida was digging up some dirt behind the mysterious jailhouse death of a legendary black bluesman's son, who was in possession of some priceless blues recordings. To Hap and Leonard, something doesn't smell right.

What made the experience of listening to The Two-Bear Mambo the most enjoyable?

Sure. There's mystery, plot twists, etc. But the snappy, southern-fried dialogue between protagonists Hap Collins and Leonard Pine as written by Lansdale--and performed by Phil Gigante--are the real reason anyone shoud read the Hap and Leonard series. Great book! Great listen!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

You betcha.
