I started reading "Savage Season" while reading Charlie Huston's "Caught Stealing". Why? Because I forgot the book in my car on a Friday and I didn’t bother to go back and get it. Had it been a better book I'm pretty sure I couldn’t’ve been without it during the weekend. So I read around 100 pages of "Savage Season" before finishing "Caught Stealing". Already then I knew I would like R L Lansdale better than Charlie Huston, at least when it comes to writing thrillers. R L Lansdale seems, only read this book though, a bit more intelligent regarding plot twist and turn. Still, this book is a thriller, so don’t expect that your mouth will be wild open when finishing it. This isn’t “Shutter Island” or “A Small Death in Lisbon”, or “The Usual Suspect”. Don’t expect Kaiser Söse kind of surprise. But like I just said, L R Lansdale paints an interesting story behind the characters making it interesting to read. Besides, Hap and Leonard are two characters that don’t go unnoticed. Black humor… I love that! Will I ever read another book in the Hap and Leonard series or from R L Lansdale? I don’t think so, unless I’m 100% sure that the book I’m going to read is a mystery. Don’t get me wrong, this is a good thriller, but I’m getting more and more into the realization that I like to watch thrillers while I like to read mysteries.
