Mystery and Thriller, Fiction

We gave it an A

Forget plot (though this one’s a dandy, involving a missing movie about Elvis impersonators, several dead humans, one live cat, and a woman who doesn’t know she’s named Downtown Judy). The real appeal of Kinky Friedman’s sixth mystery, Elvis, Jesus & Coca-Cola, comes from its internal monologue — one you’d expect from the author of the country-song parody ”Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed.” If you like your books narrated in off-color ramblings from the hokiest B movie of your dreams, this one’s a solid A.
