A long-lost bookmobile opens a wild new chapter in the lives of dysfunctional Texas detectives Hap and Leonard--stars of the hit Sundance TV series. Hap Collins is a straight, white, liberal, blue-collar tough guy. Leonard Pine is a gay, black, Republican combat veteran. Together, they're the truest Lone Stars living in America's most independently minded state. Best friends who've shared a succession of low-wage odd jobs that have gotten them into even odder situations dealing with lowlifes, now the duo delivers their own brand of ass-kicking justice as private investigators. In this brand-new story, a day's fishing lands Hap and Leonard their biggest catch ever: the Rolling Literature bookmobile. A pillar of rural African American communities in East Texas, the renovated school bus vanished fifteen years ago--along with its driver, Harriet Hoodalay, aka Hoodoo Harry--reappearing just in time to crash Leonard's pickup into a creek. Behind the wheel was a twelve-year-old boy who didn't survive the accident. The kid was clearly running scared, but who was he running from and how did he end up in the driver's seat of the missing bookmobile? The first solid lead in a case that started more than a decade earlier with Hoodoo Harry, this mystery of a small town's dark and disturbing past will take all of Hap and Leonard's wits--and fists--to solve.

There is a new Hap and Leonard out, this one a novella. There, that should stand on it's own as a review. I mean really, that's all anyone need know, Hap and Leonard. Let the wild rumpus begin.
Returning from a fishing trip, Hap and Leonard almost die when Leonard's truck is crushed by a runaway bookmobile. The bookmobile, along with it's driver, Harriet Hoodalay, has been missing for fifteen years. The driver of the returned -to- life bookmobile, a young black teenager, does not survive the accident.
Hap and Leonard get permission from their friend Marvin Hanson, the local police chief, to observe the forensic people examining the bookmobile. A horrific discovery is made and Hap and Leonard have too many nightmares or sleepless nights to be able to leave it alone.
Hap and Leonard are the partners that make Spenser and Hawke look like effete dilettantes. Their give and take is audacious, raunchy and raw. Plus, I can't think of anyone who writes Texas better that Joe. R Lansdale.
I am not a short story or novella reader as a rule, I always seem to end up feeling short changed.
This is an exception for me. Everything needed for a complete story is here. Do I wish it was longer, oh hell yes, but just for the sure pleasure of reading about Hap and Leonard.
Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.
