While this Hap & Leonard tale maintains the series norm of being another thought provoking social commentary, written with Joe's unique southern dialogue, ripe with his special style of humor, I must say it fell a little short in both. Now understand that I am comparing "Rusty Puppy" to others in what I consider one of the premier series in down to earth, rip roaring, common man epics.
Short on the humor that usually has me in tears and near breathless, it still has more sharp witted cutting funnies than ninety percent of books purely devoted to such.
Noticeable was a tamer less violent plot. I hope this is not a trend.
Finally, as we have come to expect, it contains a well developed plot with a motley group of characters.
Nobody compares with the true Mojo storyteller Joe Lansdale. May Hap and Leonard ride on and on and on. Already craving the next!
