Synopsis :

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 his lover 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 behaviour of LaBorde¿s Chili king; and more dead bodies than you can shake a stick at.

Critique: Fast-paced, raunchy and fun, Bad Chili is the fourth book by Joe R Lansdale to feature the incorrigible East Texan duo of modern crime fiction, Hap Collins and Leonard Pine. The trouble, and there's always a ton of it, begins when Hap rolls back into town only to be attacked by a rabid squirrel--and everything goes downhill from there. Leonard's ex-lover, Raul, is murdered and when the bigoted police squad shows no sign of bringing the murderer to justice, Leonard decides to take matters into his own hands--Ain't no one gonna do much about this shit. Couple queers aced is almost good business far as the chief's concerned...They don't make it their business, then I got to make it my business. Easier said than done, for each stone that Hap and Leonard overturn in their pursuit of Raul's murderer reveals a confusing array of illegal dealings, thugs and mysterious videotapes. But the duo's irreverent humour and witty repartee never falters and it is this hilarious dialogue, combined with fast-action adventure, that is winning Lansdale fans the world over. -- Shannon Bingham
