"Machos und Macheten" ist ein sehr amüsantes Portrait über zwei Männer die auf den ersten Blick sehr unterschiedlich sind aber sich bei genauerem hinsehen so perfekt ergänzen wie die sprichwörtliche Faust aufs Auge.

A good, almost great entry in the Hap and Leonard series by the great Mr. Lansdale. This one was fantastic until about page 190. It seemed like it was reaching a logical conclusion, the situations and characters were great and semi-believable and then there is kind of a weak 50 page or so clima...
