Joe R. Lansdale—Publishers Weekly Reviews Dead Aim

Dead Aim by Joe R. Lansdale

We have everything ready to go to the printer for Joe R. Lansdale's January release, the Hap and Leonard novella, Dead Aim. Which is great, considering the first review, from Publishers Weekly, has just landed:

Tart, smart, and dangerous, Lansdale’s favorite roughneck detectives, Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, take on an apparently straightforward assignment—discourage a man from harassing his estranged wife—in this dark and twisty novella… Though the book boasts many distinctively warped characters, a few (like Hap) sometimes try to be better than they naturally are. The action builds up to a shootout that’s simultaneously exciting and funny.
