A psychological thriller in the vein of Dean Koontz and Lee Child, Hot in December is a fast-paced and entertaining novella from the author of Edge of Dark Water, The Bottoms and the Hap and Leonard novel series.
One death is only the beginning for Tom and his wife Kelly who witness a fast-driving car killing their innocent neighbor in the street.
Tom describes the driver to the police, but there is something he didn't anticipate: The driver belongs to a powerful criminal gang in East Texas.
The criminals make Tom and his family a target, abducting his wife Kelly and threatening his daughter. Now Tom must look to old war comrades for help in a brutal and unforgiving struggle to rescue his wife and bring justice to the notorious gang.

"One of the greatest yarn spinners of his generation: fearless, earthy, original, manic and dreadfully funny." (Dallas Morning News)

Good short read with Hap n Leonard side characters
Yes its a predictable story, but Booger n Kassen make it enjoyable. Normal Lansdale vigilante justice. Great narration too.
