"Savage Season" kicks off the six-book series featuring Hap Collins and Leonard Pine against the backdrop of rural East Texas. The writing is gritty and very noir and reminisicent of Jim Thompson. Of the other three I have read so far, this one was the best.

At less than 200 pages, it does not overstay its welcome. In fact, this was the perfect length for this story. Hap and his friend Leonard (who we are told in no uncertain terms is a gay black man) are asked by Hap's ex-wife Trudy to help her find the money from a bank robbery committed by someone her current husband knew. That's the main plot that this is based on. From then on, however, everything goes wrong.
There are no gray areas here, everyone is either good or bad, and there are some very bad people here. Some of the scenes are particularly gruesome, but Lansdale's writing carries one through. The characterizations save this one from being common-grade pulp. I would probably pursue Hap and Leonard through other adventures. I will most certainly pick up another of Joe Lansdale's novels.
