Hap Collins is an East Texas field worker and his best buddy, Leonard Pine, is gay, black, and tough as hell.
In this second Hap & Leonard mystery adventure, Leonard is still recuperating from the injuries he suffered in ''Savage Season'' when he learns that his Uncle Chester has died. Hap agrees to stay with Leonard and help clean out the rundown house that he's inherited; when they find a small skeleton buried under the floor, sandwiched between old pages of Psalms and kiddie porn, it's up to them to prove that Chester wasn't responsible for a string of child murders. Lansdale develops the quirky and?caring relationship between his two protagonists as they banter with each other throughout their pursuit of the killers. This sharp and very funny book is a mad-dash thriller, loaded with crack addicts, a serial killer, and a body count.
