About Book

'If there's one thing I hate,' I said to the beautiful woman on the airplane, 'it's meeting a beautiful woman on an airplane.'

However, when the beautiful woman in question suddenly disappears into thin air and Kinky is left holding her hot-pink imitation-leather suitcase it seems as if he is destined to meet the alluring Khadija Kejela again. Their fateful encounter leads to a trail of Arab terrorists, State Department officials and Israeli spys fighting their way through Kinky's Vandam Street loft in order to retrieve a cache of missing passports from the little pink suitcase. One corpse, a lot of cat shit, a pickled finger, several shots of Jamesons and countless cigars later the mystery is solved - but not before Kinky discovers a nasty thing or two about his comely travelling companion.

  • About Kinky Friedman

    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.
