I've mentioned before how much I enjoy Lansdale's early (core) Hap & Leonard novels, just great buddy detective fiction.  The back & forth dialog, humor, wit, it's all very entertaining.  But as I've also mentioned over the last several novels (this one more of a novela) Lansdale has really gone on autopilot with these books.  Dead Aim is no exception.
I still read them and get some enjoyment out of them, they're comforting and reliable.  But if I had never read any Hap or Leonard novels, and happened upon this one first, I'd never read another.  Which is a shame, because those early novels were magic.
