Rusty Puppy

Hap and Leonard investigate a racially motivated murder that threatens to tear apart their East Texas town.


While Hap, a former 60s activist and self-proclaimed white trash rebel, is recovering from a life-threatening stab wound, Louise Elton comes into Hap and Leonard's PI office to tell him that the police have killed her son, Jamar.


Months earlier, a bully cop pulled over and sexually harassed Jamar's sister, Charm. The officer followed Charm over the course of the next couple of months, leading Jamar to videotape and take notes on the cop and his partner. The next thing Louise hears, Jamar got in a fight and is killed in the projects by local hoods. It doesn't add up: he was a straight A student, destined for better things, until he began to ask too many questions about the racist police force.

    Hap and Leonard: Blood and Lemonade

      Joe R. Lansdale
Hap and Leonard: Blood and Lemonade

A new novel celebrating the second season of the Sundance TV Hap and Leonard series starring Michael K. Williams (The Wire), James Purefoy (The Following), and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men).

Hap Collins is becoming a man—just not the man he's expected to be. His East Texan childhood has been chock full of ignorant rednecks, bullies, and bigots. As a more enlightened sort, Hap went and figured out that being right is a lot less fun that kicking ass.

But singlehandedly punishing the jerks of the world is a tough row to hoe. Luckily, Hap's about to meet his unlikely partner-in-crime-solving.

Leonard Pine is many things Hap is not: black, gay, and surprisingly conservative. Frankly, the two young men seem ill-matched at best. But when Hap sees Leonard demolishing an angry mob with both his fists and words, it's immediately clear that they have a lot in common.

Hap and Leonard: Blood and Lemonade brings together the origins of Joe R. Lansdale’s popular Texan crime-fighting duo. These new, familiar, and definitive adventures show once and for all how two pissed-off young men became one heck of a bad-ass team.
