Description
In this eighth novel in the whip-smart series by Bram Stoker and Edgar Award winner Joe Lansdale, following Vanilla Ride, East Texas troublemakers and sometime sleuths Hap Collins and Leonard Pine return in a mayhem-fueled thriller to face a vampire cult, the Dixie Mafia, and a deadly assassin. Looking into a double homicide cold case, they realize that the crime-scene photos reveal the image of a red devil's head painted on a tree. A little research turns up a slew of murders with that same fiendish signature. And if that's not enough, Leonard has taken to wearing a deerstalker cap. Will this be the case that finally sends Hap over the edge?

"Hap Collins (white and straight) and his partner, Leonard Pine (black and gay), look into a two-year-old unsolved murder. They step into the usual hornet's nest of troubles when they spot a devil's head scrawled in blood in crime-scene photos.... Lansdale delivers his patented blend of hard-boiled mayhem and laconic humor, leavened with reflections on mortality, morality, sex, and brotherhood. There's enough seriousness to make this novel stand far apart from run-of-the-mill thrillers—and enough comedy to have readers laughing through the blood spatters."—Publishers Weekly

"Lansdale is funny, often profane, sometimes profound, and a master of the prolonged shootout. The Hap and Leonard novels are re-readably entertaining. Each time through reveals something that was missed earlier."—Booklist
