The only things standing in their way is a houseful of felons, a vicious killer, and possibly themselves. "Lansdale's prose has the mean terseness of James M. Cain...Welds the grungy nihilism of pulp to the delibrate exaggerations of the tall tale." - Newsday "Like 10-alarm chili, Lansdale is pretty hot stuff." - People

In the second installment of the Hap Collins-Leonard Pine series, Leonard is still recuperating from the injuries he suffered in the first book (Savage Season) when he learns that his Uncle Chester has died. Hap agrees to stay with Leonard and help clean out the rundown house that he's inherited; when they find a small skeleton buried under the floor, it's up to them to prove that Chester wasn't responsible for a string of child murders by finding the real killer.
Lansdale slowly develops the relationship between his two protagonists as they banter with each other throughout their pursuit of the killers.
