Perhaps, though I usually associate redneck-noir w/ a true backwoods or very rural setting, and a cast of characters who on the face appear unsophisticated and uneducated, shunning the modern world for a host of reasons. Lansdale's FREEZER BURN had some of those elements, I suppose, but probably not enough -- in my mind -- to label it redneck noir.

I *would*, however, call it possibly the best book by Lansdale I've ever read -- in fact, it's one of my all-time favorites, period.
