ISBN 10: 0688091482, ISBN 13: 9780688091484. Musical Chairs is a book about country music, about life on the road, and about my band the Texas Jewboys, whom some considered to be a crime against God and country, not to mention humanity. A country musician gets used to a lot of ups and downs throughout a career. It's a small step from the limo to the gutter.

Or maybe you want a glimpse of Willie Nelson's home life (hint: Willie plays a lot of golf).

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'.

  • I've read all of Richard "Kinky" Friedman's private dick series. And there are a lot of detective jokes, homages and references to his earlier music career. This one is one of the fifteen in the series, and if you like any one of them you'll probably like all of them. It is earlier on and if you're going to read them all, you'll necessarily be reading this one as well. And you could pretty much start anywhere in the series and not be a bit lost, (other than making sure you read 10 Little New Yorkers last, as it is seemingly the last). Nonetheless, without putting a dubious ranking on any single volume, I wouldn't start with this one.

  • Humor. Mystery. A good cat who never says anything. Nobody tells it like Kinky Friedman tells it. Unique style and always entertaining. I am a fan and recommend Musical Chairs.

  • I'm working my way through Kinky's entire mystery series and this one doesn't disappoint. There are too many highlighted gems to count.

  • Kinky Friedman is hilarious. Great read.

  • "Musical Chairs" is Kinky's fifth novel and and was first published in 1991. As with his other books, Kinky has cast himself as the amateur-PI hero - though he doesn't take too many liberties. The book's Kinky (unsurprisingly) is a cigar-smoking, cat-loving, espresso-guzzling, whiskey-drinking, ex-country and western performer. Naturally, Kinky isn't the only 'real' person to appear in the book - Rambam, Ratso and McGovern - Kinky's 'Village Irregulars' - have all been based on actual friends while the Texas Jewboys - Kinky's old band - also turn up.

    Unfortunately, it's the Texas Jewboys who appear to be in trouble. With New Year's Eve approaching, Kinky receives a phone call from one-time bandmate, Tequila. Freshly landed in New York, short on places to stay and in need of a world-class PI, Tequila somehow manages to persuade Kinky to help him. However, while Kinky calls at a nearby comvenience, a killer calls at the loft and leaves Tequila the Guitarist floating in the bath. Things go from bad to worse : Kinky then gets a phone call from Cleve, the former manager of both the band and the Lone Star Cafe. Cleve, who is spending a little time in the Pilgrim State Mental Hospital after having dispatched three country singers, wants to put the band back together. Kinky initially resists the idea...but when he discovers that two futher ex-Jewboys are also very recently deceased, he begins to get very suspicious....The only good thing in Kinky's life at this time is Kelli, a very sweet Texan dancer. Kelli, like Kinky, isn't without her troubles : she has recently parted from her deranged Texan boyfirend and compounded that by spurning Winnie Katz, noted Lesbian Dance Class instructor. (Poor girl : she escapes from two predators, only to be snared by a third).

    "A Case of Lone Star" has much in common with the other books by Kinky I've read. While it's not an entirely serious 'whodunnit' it is a fast moving and very easily read book. It's also packed with superbly delivered one-liners and - while his quips won't be to everyone's tastes - it was a book I thoroughly enjoyed.

  • For those not familiar with Kinky Friedman's semi-autobiographical adventures as the country-singer-turned-detective with the skewed take on the world, this one has it all. This is probably the most outrageous book in the series (up to this point, anyway).
    Kinky's at his best when he's interacting with the motley crew of musicians, journalists, and lesbian dance instructors who constantly threaten to topple his comfort and peace. In Musical Chairs, almost the entire cast of Jewboys (Kinky's real life band) are on hand and they're bringing some of Texas with them to the Big Apple. The only problem with the riotous reunion is that someone wants them dead and is picking them off one by one.
    No matter how many bass players die the show must go on. There isn't a lot of seriousness to the Kinky series as it is, and the story is almost an afterthought in this one. Just sit back and (ignoring a few problems with the hastily crafted ending) watch the un-PC ramblings of the band and Kinky's own problems with cat vomit, the price of chicken fried steak, and dead musicians in the shower (or "rain room", as the man himself would put it). Hilarious and very worthwhile.
