Savage Season is the basis for the first season of the Sundance TV series Hap and Leonard

A rip-roaring, high-octane, Texas-sized thriller, featuring two friends, one vixen, a crew of washed-up radicals, loads of money, and bloody mayhem.

Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are best friends, yet they couldn't be more different. Hap is an east Texas white-boy with a weakness for Texas women. Leonard is a gay, black Vietnam vet. Together, they steer up more commotion than a fire storm. But that's just the way they like it. So when an ex-flame of Hap's returns promising a huge score. Hap lets Leonard in on the scam, and that's when things get interesting. Chockfull of action and laughs, Savage Season is the masterpiece of dark suspense that introduced Hap and Leonard to the thriller scene. It hasn't been the same since.

A quick and fun read. I enjoyed Lansdale's quirky characters and colloquial language. It's easy to see how these books will translate well for the new tv series.

I believe this is the first in the series so there may be a few kinks to be figured out. It's been known this isn't the best in the series but perhaps there will be better luck with the others. Not exactly the most gritty or surprising crime book I've read, but perhaps good for beginners of the genre. Try Dashiell Hammett or, my personal favorite, Chester Himes.

The first book in one of my favorite series of books of all time. Ultra-Violent.
