Publisher's Summary

Edgar Award-winner and fan favorite Joe R. Lansdale is back with Hap and Leonard's latest caper: investigating the disappearance of a revivalist cult leader's daughter.

Hap and Leonard are an unlikely pair - Hap, a self-proclaimed white-trash rebel, and Leonard, a tough-as-nails, black, gay Vietnam vet and Republican - but they're the closest friend either of them has in the world. Hap is celebrating his wedding to his longtime girlfriend, Brett (who is also Hap and Leonard's boss), when their backyard barbecue is interrupted by a couple of Pentecostal white supremacists. They're not too happy to see Leonard, and no one is happy to see them, but they have a problem, and only Hap and Leonard will take the case.

Judith Mulhaney's daughter, Jackrabbit, has been missing for five years. Well, she's been missing from them for five years, but she's been missing from everybody, including the local no-goods who ran with her, for a few months. Despite their misgivings about Judith and her son, Hap and Leonard take the case. It isn't long until they find themselves mixed up in a revivalist cult that believes Jesus will return flanked by an army of lizard-men - solving a murder to boot.

With Lansdale's trademark humor, whip-smart dialogue, and plenty of ass-kicking adventures to be had, you won't want to miss Hap and Leonard's latest.

❤️ Hap and Leonard

Another Hap and Leonard adventure, with all the usual elements - raunchy, humorous dialogue, bizarre characters, and plenty of violence. The plot is thin to non-existent, but this series is all about the characters. And I can't rave enough about the narrator ! Christopher Ryan Grant is fabulous !

Jackrabbit Smile

Good storyline. Phrasing elementary; "He said," et al. disrupts dialogue flow between characters for listener.

Surprise MFers!

Love this book. Lansdale never fails to make me laugh and make me think. I always want to grab a Dr. Pepper with Hap and Leonard. I’ll even bring extra vanilla cookies

Smile's all the way through

Would you listen to Jackrabbit Smile again? Why?

As a fan of the series, I've read many of the books more than once, and I figure I will get around to a second listen on all of them. They are an enjoyable way to pass the time.

What about Christopher Ryan Grant’s performance did you like?

From his first performance on Honky Tonk Samurai, Grant established himself as Hap. With an easygoing flow, that ramps up at the right times, I've been well ensconced in Hap and Leonard's world.

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

I actually did that!

Pissed off dog lover

Because I know and love dogs,I was glad to see someone make friends with an abused dog and then steal it. Then however,instead of rehabilitating the. abused fighting dog,he encourages it to kill people.Then he drops this killer dog off to board at a kennel full of other peoples dogs,to be taken care of by minimum wage teen agers. What could go wrong.? I've worked with dogs,and done animal rescue for35 years and I don't have anything against pit bulls in general,as long as the owners are intelligent and responsible.However unfortunately a lot of idiots think that an aggressive dog is like a gun.They think that it will only be dangerous when they want it to be,and to whom they want it to be.l' m tired of my neighbors pit bulls trying to smash through my storm door to get inside and kill my pets. I'm really tired of seeing on the news some kid got killed because he climbed a fence to get a ball in someone else's yard.My next door neighbors let their pit bull run around the neighborhood chasing peoples kids and growling at everyone.It would follow people around their own yards growling at them every time they left their houses.The idiots that owned it repeatedly stated that they couldn't understand why everyone else couldn't see what a sweet dog it was.I felt sorry for the dog. I knew that sooner or later someone would shoot it,and sure enough one day it just disappeared. There really needs to be some kind of way to determine who has enough rational thinking and sense of responsibility to be allowed to own a pit bull.

First Time

This is my first time listening to a book by J R Lansdale. I truly enjoyed the narration. Christopher Grant did an excellent job with each character's voice and expressing their emotions.
One can hear and feel the joy, the hurt and angry each character expressed.
The story was well written. The words give a very good description of the characters and the location of the story. And, there is humor interspersed
throughout the story. This was a good read. This is not for you, if you have interracial and intergender concerns.
