Overview

Hyenas marks the always-welcome return of Joe R. Lansdale’s most indelible fictional creations: Hap Collins and Leonard Pine. Once again, the embattled but resilient duo find themselves enmeshed in a web of danger, duplicity, and escalating mayhem. The result is a tightly compressed novella that is at once harrowing, hilarious, and utterly impossible to put down.

The story begins with a barroom brawl that is both brutal and oddly comic. The ensuing drama encompasses abduction, betrayal, robbery, and murder, ending with a lethal confrontation in an East Texas pasture. Along the way, readers are treated to moments of raucous, casually profane humor and to scenes of vivid, crisply described violence, all related in that unmistakable Lansdale voice. An essential addition to an already imposing body of work, Hyenas shows us both the author and his signature characters at their inimitable best. It doesn’t get better than this.

Hyenas also includes the bonus Hap Collins short story, “The Boy Who Became Invisible”.

This was a wonderful story, I'm not sure how I missed it when it came out. I love all the Hap and Leonard stories. I highly recommend all the others, starting with Savage Season.

I totally enjoyed this story about a man trying to save his younger brother from a life of crime by employing some 'not by the book' fellows who did what was necessary to remove the 'bad elements' from the kids life and showing the kid that being decent wasn't a sissy game.

You guys are just jealous that your leader was only using you. Besides, everyone knows the lions are way cooler.
