"Richard S. 'Kinky' Friedman is an American singer, songwriter, novelist, humorist, politician and former columnist for Texas Monthly who styles himself in the mold of popular American satirists Will Rogers and Mark Twain. He was one of two independent candidates in the 2006 election for the office of Governor of Texas. Receiving 12.6% of the vote, Friedman placed fourth in the six-person race."--Goodreads' blurb.

A charming Texan who takes humor seriously--like Mark Twain--Kinky's also an environmentalist who's deeply into recycling fuel oil, and passionately involved with animal rights, for which he has sheltered hundreds of dogs and other critters that he has rescued.

The wonderfully eccentric and brilliant author"s tenth book. An aging country singer turns detective and works New York City.

Who would slap an Indian curse on a good-ol'-boy like country singer Willie Nelson? Maybe the same hombre who's been firing shots into Willie's hotel room and sending nasty notes promising the cowboy crooner a one-way ticket to that big rodeo-in-the-sky. Or possibly, it has to do with the medicine man who got scrunched by Willie's tour bus one night? If anyone can find out, it's arch troubleshooter and troublemaker Kinky Friedman--on the road in his tenth wickedly funny, mystery caper.
