Wish List Wednesday is a weekly meme I started in July '09, in which I put the spotlight on a book that is on my wish list--whether new release, blast from the past, or hidden gem.
I recently had the chance to cross Savage Season off my wish list, the first "Hap & Leonard" novel by Joe R. Lansdale. You can expect a review of it sometime down the road. But, now that I have read it, I have an appetite for more. And wouldn't you know he has a new adventure with the two men out now.
In Devil Red, the two east Texas ruffians turned investigators take on a cold case of an unsolved murder. Turns out it deals with some kind of vampire cult and they soon end up fighting for their lives.
Now, this sounds like a much different book from Savage Season, but if it has the same great kinds of characters and pace that the first book had, then I think I'm going to really enjoy this one. It's the eighth book in the series though, and I wonder just how much I'm going to be missing out on if I skip the other six and go right to this one.
