Phil Gigante's tones are rich and appealing as he delivers this wild misadventure shot through with humor. In the fifth Hap Collins and Leonard Pine mystery, the pair are working as security guards at a chicken-processing plant in East Texas. Hap becomes a reluctant hero by rescuing the boss's daughter from a vicious beating. Gigante contrasts Hap's earnest, naïve voice with Leonard's soft drawl as the story blends philosophical dialogue and profanity, oozes testosterone, and concludes with sweet revenge. Taking a vacation trip in Mexico with the reward money they've been awarded, Hap and Leonard encounter another assortment of characters as they become entangled in muggings, murders, and kidnappings. Gigante's consistent narration adds to the fun created by Lansdale. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
