Publisher Description

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.

This is the second of Kinky Friedman's internationally acclaimed mystery novels. 

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 29, which was a little younger than Jesus but a little older than John Keats..."

Awesome, more please!

I love this author. He’s got many books, please release more of them on audio books. The reader is perfect, the only better reader for these mysteries would be the author himself.
