Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The legendary Lone Star Cafe, a little corner of Texas right in the heart of New York City, where every great country music star stops for a gig. At one time or another everyone from the Rolling Stones to Willie Nelson has jammed there. But this night, Thanksgiving eve, there's a different type of jam at the Lone Star. Larry Barkin, half of the headlining Barkin Brothers, is found dead in his dressing room, his head bashed in with his own guitar and a two dollar bill stuffed in his shirt pocket. It's Kinky they call for help, but the fast-talking cigar-smoking country singer turned amateur detective has other plans.

"The world's funniest, bawdiest and most politically incorrect music singer turned mystery writer." (New York Times Book Review)

"To borrow a Kinkyism, this book is Killer Bee." (The Washington Post)

"Smart, funny and tough." (Robert B. Parker, author)

"A true Texas legend."(President George W. Bush)

"Dear Kinky, I have now read all of your books. More, please. I really need the laughs." (former) President Bill Clinton)

"The Sam Spade of South Texas. Only soft boiled. And hipper. And funnier." (Sunday Mail)

This is the second of Kinky Friedman's internationally acclaimed mystery novels, republished with a new introduction by the author.

From the Author's Introduction: "A Case of Lone Star, my second novel, was begun in New York and completed in Texas. Its setting is the legendary Lone Star Cafe in Manhattan where I performed for many years sometimes walking on my knuckles or having to be wheeled onstage on a gurney. The book deals with cats, cocaine, cigars, country music, and anything else that begins with a "c". It also deals heavily with the Hillbilly Shakespeare, the Jesus of the Bible Belt, the Anne Frank of the Louisiana Hayride, Hank Williams, who passionately intermingled his life and his work, the latter being beautiful beyond words and music, the former ending officially on January 1, 1953, crucified in a Cadillac on a lost highway at age twenty-nine which was a little younger than Jesus but a little older than John Keats..."

Vandam Press is proud to be able to make this remarkable novel available to Kinky’s old friends and to those readers who are discovering Kinky Friedman for the first time.
