About this title

Synopsis:

When wisecracking Kinky Friedman sets out on a search for his editor's missing cat he finds himself unexpectantly involved with drug-centered gang wars, a beautiful woman, and a couple of macabre murders

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..."
