One of the funniest, most edgy series I've ever read. Everyone would like to have a friend as true as Hap and Leonard are, someone who loves your warts along with the rest of you. Welcome to East Texas, where things are done a little differently.
Mucho Mojo shines in a series that is brilliant.
Mucho Mojo is mucho macho. Macho white guy, Hap Collins, and his equally macho but gay(is that possible?)black buddy, Leonard Pine, make a grisly discovery in Pine's dead uncle's house. It's a discovery that leads them to unearth a chain of murders and an unlikely serial killer. This novel is neither socially nor politically correct, in fact there's something here to offend everyone, which is what makes this book and most of Lansdale's writing so much fun--he takes readers down off their observation platforms and lets them read right down in the mud and the blood with the participants.
"In the hellish July heat, Hap Collins and Leonard Pine clean out the house of Leonard's just-dead Uncle Chester. But as they clear away the filth, they uncover a dirty secret. Beneath the rotting floorboards, Hap and Leonard unearth a small skeleton, wrapped in porno magazines. Thinking white, Hap wants to call the cops. Leonard, versed in the unwritten codes of his black neighborhood, persuades Hap otherwise. Together, they're about to clear Chester's name sans outside reinforcement--as they dig up the deepest, ugliest truth of all under the blister of an East Texas sun."
