Bad Chili

Joe R. Lansdale: Bad Chili (USA 2009)

From the Publisher:
With his trademark knack for gut-busting laughter and head-splitting action, Joe R. Lansdale serves up a bubbling cauldron of murder and mayhem that only he could create.

Hap Collins has just returned home from a gig working on an off shore oil rig. With a new perspective on life, Hap wants to change the way he's living, and shoot the straight and narrow. That is until the man who stole Leonard Pine's boyfriend turns up headless in a ditch and Leonard gets fingered for the murder. Hap vows to clear Leonard's name, but things only get more complicated when Leonard's ex shows up dead. To the police it is just a matter of gay-biker infighting, but to Hap and Leonard murder is always serious business, and these hit a little to close to home.

Joe R. Lansdale: Bad Chili. A Hap and Leonard Novel. Vintage Books, ISBN: 9780307455505 (May, 2009), 292 p., $14.00.

Joe R. Lansdale: Bad Chili (UK 2002)

From the Publisher:
Fresh from his stint on an offshore oil rig and determined to make some changes in his life, Hap Collins arrives home in Laborde, Texas, only to find his best friend Leonard brooding over his breakup with this love Raul. Things seem bad for Leonard - but they can only get worse. When a local biker, who happens to be Raul's new lover is found murdered, Leonard is the prime suspect. The local law is little use, as usual, so Hap sets out to clear Leonard's name. But it isn't going to be easy. Then again, nothing in Hap's life ever is. Complications include his new love interest, the nurse of every man's dream with a secret past; the life threatening behavious of LaBorde's Chili king; and more dead bodies than you can shake a stick at.

To help his partner in the case of one murdered lowlife, Hap Collins won't be bending the law, he'll be stomping the hell out of it. Spicing the mix will be LaBorde's own Chili King, a woman in white with a dark past, an actual tornado, several dead bodies in unwelcome places, and an unpleasant experience involving blocks of ice and car batteries.

Bad Chili

Joe R. Lansdale: Bad Chili (USA 1997)

From the Publisher:
Hap Collins is home, fresh from his stint on an offshore oil rig, bright with determination to change his life. Back in LaBorde, he finds his friend Leonard Pine grieving over the breakup of his affair with his lover Raul. Then things get serious.

A local roughneck by the name of Horse Dick is dead and Leonard is implicated. Not suprisingly, the law is little use. To help his partner, Hap won't be bending the law, he'll be stomping the hell out of it. But Hap has always had to do things he doesn't like.

What he does like - a lot - is Brett Sawyer, a nurse and a woman with her own past: something about an abusive husband and a match and lighter fluid to make it all go away. Spicing the mix is LaBorde's Chili King, an actual tornado, more dead bodies in unwelcome places, and an unpleasant experience involving blocks of ice and car batteries. Not to mention the matter of one rabid squirrel.
