Hyenas, by Joe R. Lansdale, is an excellent novella. Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, two East Texas tough guys, try to help extricate a man’s younger brother from a gang of thieves who have persuaded him to join them. That’s what hap and Leonard do. They help people who are being victimized by criminal thugs. Hap and Leonard are uniquely qualified to do this sort of work because they are extremely adept at bare-knuckle, no-rules, hand-to-hand combat. They are also knowledgeable and skilled with weapons, and most of all they can be mean as hell when they need to be. They reveal their skills and how mean they can be to the hyenas in this shocking, but satisfying novella. It is a great read! In addition, this Kindle eBook contains a short story (The Boy who Became Invisible) from Hap’s teenage years which reveals something about his aversion to victimization of innocent people. ( )
