Devil Red (Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, Book 8)

Hap Collins and Leonard Pine go back in a red-hot, mayhem-fueled mystery to stand a vampire cult, the Dixie Mafia, and the deadliest murderer they've ever encountered--Devil Red.

When their pal Marvin asks Hap and Leonard to appear right into a cold-case double homicide, they're more than pleased to play deepest investigators: they prefer hassle, and so they particularly like getting paid to discover it. It seems that either one of the sufferers have been set to inherit severe cash, and certainly one of them ran with a vampire cult. The extra heavily Hap and Leonard glance over the crime-scene images, the extra they see, together with clone of a pink devil's head painted on a tree. a little analysis turns up a slew of murders with that very same fiendish signature. And if that's now not sufficient, Leonard has taken to donning a deerstalker cap . . . Will this be the case that at last sends Hap over the edge?

Full up with Lansdale's trademark--whip-smart discussion, relentless pacing, and unorthodox-to-say-the-least characters--Devil pink is one rambunctious thrill trip by way of one hell of a writer.
