Mucho Mojo is the basis for the second season of the new Sundance TV series Hap and Leonard.
Hap and Leonard return in this incredible, mad-dash thriller, loaded with crack addicts, a serial killer, and a body count.
Leonard is still nursing the injuries he sustained in the duo's last wild undertaking when he learns that his Uncle Chester has passed. Hap is of course going to be there for his best friend, and when the two are cleaning up Uncle Chester's dilapidated house, they uncover a dark little secret beneath the house's rotting floor boards--a small skeleton buried in a trunk. Hap wants to call the police. Leonard, being a black man in east Texas, persuades him this is not a good idea, and together they set out to clear Chester's name on their own. The only things standing in their way is a houseful of felons, a vicious killer, and possibly themselves.

"A witch's brew of a tale. . . . [Lansdale has] a folklorist's eye for telling detail and a front-porch raconteur's sense of pace.”—The New York Times Book Review“Mucho Mojo is some major magic. . . . as funny as all get out. . . . A story of richness of character and setting.”—Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel “Lansdale's prose has the mean terseness of James M. Cain. . . . Welds the grungy nihilism of pulp to the deliberate exaggerations of the tall tale.”—Newsday"Like 10-alarm chili, Lansdale is pretty hot stuff."—People
