For almost 30 years, the detective team of Hap and Leonard has been solving crimes, doling out beatings, and delivering their unique brand of Texas humor--much of it dealing with excrement, flatulence, and male sex organs. Although a lot of this audiobook is laugh-out-loud funny, Christopher Ryan Grant--in his third turn narrating the series--wisely doesn't play it for laughs. Instead, he concentrates on creating believable characters who are placed in unlikely situations. Equally important, Grant's use of East Texas accents and idioms sounds natural and avoids caricature. In this adventure, the duo is hired to locate a young bookkeeper who believes she can travel to other dimensions. Though the villains are successfully dispatched--one suffers death by hungry hogs--the battle is really against bigotry. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
