Publisher's Summary

Booklist called them "two of the unlikeliest but most likable amateur detectives in crime fiction" and The Chicago Tribune describes them as "colorful... lunatic... like a twister". They're Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, and if you've been reading Joe R. Lansdale's Hap & Leonard novels like Mucho Mojo, The Two-Bear Mambo, and Rumble Tumble, then this is the treat you've been waiting for. 

Veil's Visit is an original Hap & Leonard short story co-authored by Joe R. Lansdale and Andrew Vachss, in which Leonard gets taken to court to answer for burning down a crack house.

Good journey through unfortunate circumstances

Though short, the characters' actions and moral stances are certainly interesting. There is an argument to say that what they did was right or wrong either way. The relationship between the defendant and the lawyer was also fascinating to see develop.

A Clever Tale Told Excellently

An engaging short tale about criminal justice. Veil oozes with cunning and charisma and Hap and Leonard are a hoot and a holler! Nice to enjoy this story on a long walk or a drive on the bus, Lansdale's voicework absolutely nails the southern vibe of the story.

Love The Narration!

Professionally and excitingly narrated by Joe Lansdale. This is a great story for people who want a short audiobook to listen to. An instant favorite due to the amount of voices Lansdale uses to tell the story.

Great Short Story

Great short story that has a “My Cousin Vinny” feel to it but set in a more Southern tone. Great listen for a rush hour traffic trip.

Hap, Leonard, and Veil

A short, but excellent introduction to the world of Hap and Leonard. Hap and Leonard are a blast to listen to with their banter, and Veil’s ability to keep up with the pair’s antics is commendable. The courtroom scene was great, listening to Veil’s seemingly irrelevant questioning come to a stunning finale was extremely satisfying. The narration itself was also on point!

I Need More!

This piece gave me one taste into this hearty world, and I'm hooked! Leonard and Veil lead an explosive start to the narrative that act as a nice foil to the speaker. We're lead on a journey in administering justice, and all throughout the court arc, you can't help but root for Veil to win the case. His tangential and near-chaotic defense leaves you wondering if all the effort is worth it, keeping you on your toes and laughing along the way.

Does he succeed? I'll leave that to you to find out. Highly recommend!

Well Done!

I really enjoyed the way the authors made Hap and Leonard characters that said what was on their mind. They felt raw and real. The story itself was nice and bite size, lending itself as a good introduction to the other books with Hap and Leonard. I also enjoyed the interaction with Veil, DA and Judge. Pretty hilarious.
