Just ordered your book after skimming a review in the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. Kinda lame how the American publisher changed the title (never heard of the author or series they didn't want it to be confused with). Hopefully they didn't Americanize the actual book.
Kinky Friedman? I'm a HUGE fan of his. Did you hear he ran for Governor of Texas? His main platform was against the de-clawing of cats! His mysteries rock! "I picked up the blower on the left..." "I left the cat in charge."
