"The toughest, hippest, funniest mystery in years." (Good Morning America)
"A 24-carat American original...hip and hard-boiled." (Chicago Tribune)
""What's pleasantly surprising about Greenwich Killing Time is
that it's so damn good." (Boston Phoenix)
With a new introduction by the author, Greenwich Killing Time is now available for the first time in more than a decade.
"The scene of the crime is Greenwich Village and the suspects are as strange as the crime. A wild and witty journey into the dark heart of Manhattan, Greenwich Killing Time is the perfect introduction to America's most famous and most outrageous singer-songwriter turned gumshoe detective."
This was the first of Kinky Friedman's novels and is a gritty urban murder mystery, in the tradition of Raymond Chandler and Rex Stout. In this unique book the Village Irregulars - Ratso, Rambam, McGovern, C****a, Brennan - and the other remarkable characters that later populated Kinky's novels are introduced for the first time.
To quote the author: "...Though most of the books have been set in New York (with the exception of Armadillos and Old Lace, set in Texas, and the soon-to-be-published Steppin' On A Rainbow, set in Hawaii), Greenwich Killing Time is the only one that was written in New York. Some critics have remarked, not unkindly, we hope, that the book smells like New York. If this is true it is no doubt because of the truly visceral voyage one goes through in writing a first novel. It's almost as if your first novel writes you..."
