Summary

Summary



Hap and Leonard are an unlikely pair--Hap, a self-proclaimed white trash rebel, and Leonard--a tough-as-nails Black, gay, Vietnam vet and Republican--but they're the closest friend either of them has in the world.
After years of crime-solving companionship, something's changed: Hap, recently married to their P.I. boss, Brett, is now a family man. Amidst the worst flood East Texas has seen in years, the two run across a woman who's had her tongue nearly cut out, pursued by a heavily armed pair of goons. Turns out the girl survived a mob hit, and the boss has come to clean up the mess.
On a chase that blows even the East Texas swampgrass back, Hap and Leonard must save the girl, and vanquish her foes, before the foes get them first. With a new case to solve, and a brand-new challenge to their relationship, will Hap and Leonard's friendship survive? Will Hap and Leonard survive?
The Elephant of Surprise is rich with Lansdale's trademark humor, whip-smart dialogue, and plenty of ass-kicking adventures.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In our fractious age, Hap and Leonard wouldn’t even be friends on Facebook, but Joe R. Lansdale has written a series in which the two of them are best friends, closer than a pair of brothers…And while the mysteries that the duo solve in every book are intriguing, it is Hap and Leonard’s hilarious relationship that keeps me reading.” Signature Reads, praise for the series
“Hap and Leonard are complicated, violent men, but they display a basic humanity and decency that carries this remarkable series along.” Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Rusty Puppy
