Originally appearing in The Kinky Friedman Crime Club, now published as a single volume, this is the third Kinky Friedman mystery. A purloined feline from Madison Square Gardens' cat show is a tip-off to a trail of murders, drug rings and gang wars that only Kinky Friedman can follow.

From the Author:

"Mysteries with cats as central characters have become so plentiful and predictable that I can't believe that I've written fourteen and a half of them. I don't kill quite as many trees as the woman who writes The Cat Who Got A Blow-Job, The Cat Who Killed Christ, etc., etc., but I am guilty of purveying the cat upon what I consider to be an essentially non-cat-loving world. I do this to irritate people.

I would also argue that the cat is not so much a character in my novels as it is a conscience. You remember those. A lot of people used to have them in the Sixties. Back then, consciences were really in style. They were almost as popular as cats..."

About the Author:

Kinky Friedman - commonly known to his many fans as 'The Kinkster' - first found fame as the lead singer of the country-and-western band 'The Texas Jewboys'. He is also the author of a series of highly acclaimed detective stories, featuring himself as the wise-cracking, cigar-smoking, cat-loving sleuth. He populates his novels with many of his friends and associates, portraying them (to their great delight) as villains, cheats and con-men. In the words of the great Willie Nelson, he is the 'best whodunnit writer to come along since Dashiel Whats-his-name'. Kinky Friedman lives in a trailer in the South Texas Hills with two dogs, two cats and Dilly, his pet armadillo.
