"Hap Collins and Leonard Pine return in a red-hot, mayhem-fueled thriller to face a vampire cult, the Dixie Mafia, and the deadliest assassin they've ever encountered--Devil Red. When their friend Marvin asks Hap and Leonard to look into a cold-case double murder, they're more than happy to play private investigators: they like trouble, and they especially like getting paid to find it. It turns out that both of the victims were set to inherit serious money, and one of them ran with a vampire cult. The more closely Hap and Leonard look over the crime-scene photos, the more they see, including the image of a red devil's head painted on a tree. A little research turns up a slew of murders with that same fiendish signature. And if that's not enough, Leonard has taken to wearing a deerstalker cap . . . Will this be the case that finally sends Hap over the edge? Full up with Lansdale's trademark--whip-smart dialogue, relentless pacing, and unorthodox-to-say-the-least characters--Devil Red is one rambunctious thrill ride by one hell of a writer"--Publisher.

I really liked this one, but compared to "Vanilla Ride" and others it seemed a little thin. The action, while fast and furious, seemed a little less believable than other Hap & Leonard books. The series lives on.

This is a must have for any murder-mystery fan, but especially for fan's of Joe's two unlikely heros Hap Collins and Leonard Pine. This book is very fast paced and stands on it's own, meaning you don't need to read the entire series(this is book #8) to enjoy this novel. After reading it, you will want to!
