Meet Hap and Leonard, the unlikely detective duo now on screen in the highly praised series starring James Purefoy, Michael K. Williams and Christina Hendricks.
Hap and Leonard return in this incredible, mad-dash thriller, loaded with crack addicts, a serial killer, and a serious body count.
Leonard is still nursing the injuries he sustained in the duo's latest escapade when he learns that his uncle Chester has passed. Hap is of course going to be there for his best friend, but when the two of them clean up Uncle Chester's dilapidated house, they uncover a dark little secret beneath the house's rotting floorboards: 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 are a houseful of felons, a vicious killer, and possibly themselves.
