Reviews

YA‘Kinky Friedman, perhaps the only mystery writer who uses his own name for that of his fictional detective, is hired to find the birth mother of his friend Ratso (a.k.a. Larry Sloman). Among the obstacles in solving the case are the fact that Ratso doesn't tell him all he knows (including the death of a previous investigator) and that he brings yet another sleuth on to the case due to Friedman's lack of a P.I. license. Set in New York and Florida, God Bless John Wayne is an entertaining romp of a mystery. The pace is good and the characters are lively.‘Clodagh Lee, Chantilly Regional Library, VA

"Kinky Friedman is to the detective novel what Frank Zappa is to rock and roll: a gleeful gadfly who delights in offending purists. . . . There's just no stopping him. And who wants to?"--People

"Brash, crass and colorful."--Houston Chronicle

"How is this mystery writer different from all other mystery writers? . . . We don't read him, for instance, to find out what happens next. We read him to find out how far he will go."--The Washington Post Book World

"
God Bless John Wayne
is another triumph for the Kinkster--the perfect mix of mystery, literature and wit."--The Associated Press
