Publisher's Summary

Dead Aim marks the always welcome return of Joe R. Lansdale's most enduring fictional creations: Hap Collins and Leonard Pine. The story begins simply enough when the two agree to provide protection for a woman harassed by her violent, soon-to-be-ex-husband. But when a protracted stakeout ends in a lethal shooting and a pair of moldering corpses turn up in an otherwise deserted trailer, the nature of this "routine" assignment changes dramatically.

The ensuing investigation unearths a complex web of lies, duplicity, and hidden agendas that leads from an upscale Texas law firm to the world of organized crime, culminating in the kind of explosive, anything-can-happen confrontation that only Joe Lansdale could create.

very weird review to write...

I'd forgotten since I got this that it's a novella...would explain why I thought it seemed kinda short. But it's a pretty good novella, & Phil Gigante does his usual excellent reading...but. Having just learned why they stopped using him, I now can't help but feel seriously creepy listening to him.

I just re-listened to the Hap & Leonard books I have, & came to see if there were any new ones I'd missed. Sure 'nuff, I found I don't have "Hyenas." I was really torqued to see that they'd changed readers, after I've come to completely associate Phil Gigante's voices with H&L. Gigante's been one of my fave readers for a long time. Then I read a review of "Hyena" that explained there was a really serious reason for getting rid of Gigante. So I googled Gigante's name & learned the reason. Oy. Makes the doling out of stars for 'performance' quite the moral quandary...rate the performance, or the performer? And how to separate them, under the circumstances. Tough one.

I thought this book would be longer!

I guess I missed the description that indicated that did aim was a novella and not a full length novel.
