Mystery lovers who haven't yet been introduced to Kinky Friedman's smiling style combined with his oblique looks into human character and the human condition will probably be well advised to begin with this combo. A Case of Lone Star is the Kinkster's debut into the mystery genre and it's a good one, as they all are. Kinky, his friends and his cat will soon become friends to you, as well. Once you become hooked on his mysteries I'd suggest you take a peek at his music, too. Most of it's coming available again in CD, which is a true blessing for those of us who spent our meagre earnings buying albums in vinyl to hear the Kinkster's 1960s-70s literary works in the form of lyrics.
Tip your hat to these good mysteries by Kinky, then go and buy some more. While you're reading them crank up the stereo and listen to Sold American and Ride'm Jewboy mooding you in the background. You'll be long on your trail to becoming another Kinky freak.
