Roadkill

Kinky Friedman: Roadkill (USA 1998)

From the Publisher:
Who would slap an Indian curse on a good ol' boy like country singer Willie Nelson? Probably the same person who's been firing shots into Willie's hotel room and sending nasty notes promising the cowboy crooner a one-way ticket to the big rodeo in the sky. Could it have something to do with the medicine man who got run over by Willie's tour bus one dark night? If anyone can find out, it's ace troubleshooter and well-known troublemaker Kinky Friedman--on the road again in his tenth wickedly funny, off-the-wall mystery caper.

Kinky Friedman: Roadkill. Ballantine Books, ISBN: 0345416325 (September, 1998), 252 p., $12.95.

Roadkill

Kinky Friedman: Roadkill (UK 1998)

From the Publisher:
The Kinkster does it again, outdoing his own genius for the outrageous as he tries to save his friend Willie Nelson from an old Indian curse. Once again holed up in his New York loft, reflecting that his career as a country singer turned privateinvestigator appears to have taken a turn for the worse, the Kinster agrees to join his old country music pal on tour for a little much-needed R&R. But Willie has problems of his own, and when he disappears from the tour bus and his lookalike valet is shot through the window of his motel suite, it becomes apparent that Willie is indeed in danger. With a little help from the Village Irregulars, a lot of Jamesons, an Indian buckskin medicine pouch, a silver shell casing, and of course his inscrutable cat, Kinky is soon embroiled in a wild and wicked new adventure.

Roadkill

Kinky Friedman: Roadkill (USA 1997)

From the Publisher:
Are you ready to get Kinky? Kinky Friedman -- "The world's funniest, bawdiest, and most politically incorrect country singer turned mystery writer," according to The New York Times -- returns to the scene of the crime with Roadkill. With nine novels under his holster, Friedman can count President Clinton and Molly Ivins among the legions of fans who regularly partake in the hilarious adventures of his recurring eponymous protagonist, Kinky Friedman.

Roadkill begins when the incorrigible Kinky Friedman, private dick and public nuisance, gets word that his old friend, the legendary singer and tokemaster-general Willie Nelson, is in some sort of trouble. Kinky promptly leaves New York City and joins his pal Willie on the road again. Upon his arrival, Kinky discovers that Willie's perpetually moving tour bus, the Honeysuckle Rose, hit and killed an Indian medicine man, resulting in mincemeat and an apparently unshakable Indian curse. After someone shoots Willie's valet and personal caretaker, mistaking him for the singer, Kinky knows he is deep in more than the heart of Texas.

With the help of the Village Irregulars, some visiting Indians from a touring rock band, Cuban cigars, and a friendly bottle of Jameson's, Kinky begins to unravel the mystery. Are the Indians really out to get Willie for making their medicine man step on a rainbow? Has one of Willie's 97 ex-wives gotten so upset with her settlement that she's decided to take drastic action? Or has Willie's past involvement in the Indian-rights movement, and the resulting ill will of a not-insignificant portion of the nation's law enforcement officers, come back to haunt him?

In the middle of all this sleuthing, Kinky must deal with his own midlife crisis, his broken heart, a barrage of arrows in lower Manhattan, and the blatant disrespect of his cat. Written by one of America's most outrageous, witty, and downright entertaining mystery writers, Roadkill is wild, wicked, and vintage Kinky Friedman.

Kinky Friedman: Roadkill. A Novel. Simon & Schuster, ISBN: 068480378X (September, 1997), 252 p., $23.00.
