Yaaaayyyy! Kinky discover what a plot is again!

  • Sep 8, 1997
Rating:
+3
Read the Kirkus Review for the story summary, so I'll cut to the chase here. Kinky tells a lot of road stories about Willie Nelson, Tom T. Hall ("loved all his songs and both his melodies") and offers a ribald quote from Kris Kristofferson about Farrah Fawcett-Majors that will make you spit milk through your nose. These stories make "Roadkill" a far more entertaining book than "The Love Song of J. Edgar Hoover" in which he seemed to spend far too much time talking about himself. Kinky is capable of spinning a mystery plot -- "A Case of Lone Star" is still his best -- but "Roadkill" shows Kinky can be ribaldly funny, still capable of making the inner 13-year-old boy on some of us laugh out loud

About this book

Wiki

You gotta hand it to the guy: not only does the New York Times call Friedman the "funniest...most politically incorrect country singer turned mystery writer" alive, but he makes Bill Clinton laugh. In his latest mystery, a member of Willie Nelson's band is shot by someone gunning for Nelson himself, and Friedman (as protagonist) must investigate.
