Publisher's Summary

Hap Collins has just returned home from a gig working on an off-shore oil rig. With a new perspective on life, Hap wants to change the way he's living, and shoot the straight and narrow. That is, until the man who stole Leonard Pine's boyfriend turns up headless in a ditch and Leonard gets fingered for the murder.

Hap vows to clear Leonard's name, but things only get more complicated when Leonard's ex shows up dead, too. o the police, it is just a matter of gay-biker infighting, but to Hap and Leonard, murder is always serious business, and these hit a little too close to home.

Listen to another Hap and Leonard mystery/thriller.

Great srory

Hap & Leonard are addictive. The characters are well drawn, memorable, & believable. The Sundance channel has produced a series based on the Hap & Leonard books.

Yet one more good book

I love this series. I feel so attached to them I want to see how it ends (get there as soon as I can) as it will be a mess, but will also somehow be OK. then get there and wish it wasn't over.

An other great story

It was really cool seeing an unexpected character show up, and yet again an other great story. Can't wait to continue this series

A solid entry in the series

I didn't enjoy Bad Chili quite as much as the first 3 Hap & Leonard books but as this review title says, it's a solid entry in the series. The book starts off with a hilarious sequence involving a squirrel but gets bogged down a bit in the middle before finally getting to the point. It's full of the humor, action, dark criminal activity and friendship that mark this series but for me, the plot wasn't quite up to the admittedly high standard set in the first 3 books. Nevertheless, like every book I've read from Mr. Lansdale, this one was worth the time!

Love the Book and narration!

I really love the Book and I give credit also to the narrator. The different characters he creates is amazing. I started with the first one and just couldn’t stop. I’m ready for the next one! Hap and Leonard’s relationship is so incredible I can’t wait to see what mystery they saw and what craziness they’re going to get into I’m sad that I’m just getting to the books now I wish I would have read them years ago.

Done

Too long, over-describes everything. Lost all the humor and adds violence and more unpleasantness for no reason. Too bad.
