Publisher's Summary

Hap and Leonard return in this incredible, mad-dash thriller, loaded with crack addicts, a serial killer, and a body count.

In the second installment of the Hap and Leonard series, Leonard is still nursing the injuries he sustained in the duo's last wild undertaking when he learns that his Uncle Chester has passed. Hap is of course going to be there for his best friend and offers to help clean Uncle Chester's dilapidated house, which Leonard has inherited.

There they uncover a dark little secret beneath the house's rotting floor boards - a small skeleton buried in a trunk. Hap wants to call the police. Leonard being a black man in east Texas, persuades him this is not a good idea, and together they set out to clear Chester's name on their own. The only things standing in their way is a houseful of felons, a vicious killer, and possibly themselves.

Joe Lansdale just rocks.

I love every dark and hilarious thing that comes from Joe Lansdale's mind. All of his audio books are exceptionally done.

Ghetto Mystery/Thriller

Great story and characters. Very original, raw, and gritty. Takes place and has main characters that few mystery writers touch because the story is not about beautiful people, the darkside of the "good life", and the right side of the tracks. Raw language and subjects maybe a turn off for those wanting a easy escape. However for those that want something real, a story about a unlikely buddies, and original enviroments then this is it. Great reader also.

A lot of people like this, it’s just not for me.

I listened to more than half and then stopped. It’s solving a mystery. Hap and Leonard are best friends. Leonard inherits a house from his estranged Uncle Chester. He asks Hap to live there with him and help him fix things. They discover a dead body. They believe the uncle left clues for Leonard about the murder. But the uncle had Alzheimer’s disease so his mind was not clear. So the clues were not logical. For example one clue has something to do with books, so they figure out that they need to talk to a guy who drives a book mobile. I lost interest after that.

The set-up may interest some. Leonard is black and gay. Hap is white and straight. Hap has a sexual relationship with Leonard’s black female attorney. She doesn’t want to date Hap publicly because he is white, but she’s happy to be in a private sexual relationship. Hap previously spent time in jail for refusing the draft during the Vietnam war.

The audiobook narrator Phil Gigante was good.

It Has It All

Some books have a strong plot, others strong characters, still others an ending that actually makes sense given the story. Some books have all that and a reader who is pitch on perfect. Mucho Mojo is one of those books that just has it all.
