God Bless John Wayne
by Kinky Friedman


It was raining cool cats and kosher hot dogs in the city that afternoon and things weren’t getting any sunnier as the cat looked over my shoulder at me looking over my bank statement. I was keeping us in cigars and tuna by tackling a murder investigation every now and then, but the big clients didn’t seem to be queuing up on the street outside my building waiting for me to throw down the little black puppet head with the key to the front door wedged in its mouth.


Cover blurb:

. . . life for Kinky Friedman is a constant adventure. The fact that he hires himself out as a private detective presents ample opportunity for encounters of the dangerous kind. The fact that he lives in New York City quadruples the odds.

. . . In his latest novel, the Kinkster is in absolute top form. Plus, he’s back in atmospheric New York City, ensconced in his downtown loft with his faithful though somewhat disdainful cat, arms akimbo, looking askew at a world run amuck. And in his heart, he knows that the big city is where he belongs.

If you enjoy hilarious dialogue, both internal and external, and are not offended by non-political correctness, you should enjoy almost any novel in this series. Although each one stands alone, as with most series, they are best read in order if possible.
