This is the fourth Hap Collins and Leonard Pine mystery. Joe R Lansdale writes a sort of Texas sothern hick literature. Hap and Leonard are best friends, underemployed and unlucky at love. This installment is my favorite so far and includes a rabid squirrel and Leonard(black, gay kung fu expert) busting up a biker bar to avenge his lost boyfriend, Raul. Hap finds love at the hospital where he is being treated for rabies. His new woman dealt with her absive ex-husband by whacking him in the head with a shovel. This book is politically incorrect, violent, obscene and hysterically funny.
