Roadkill (abridged audiobook) by Kinky Friedman

Kinky Friedman "on the road again" with Willie Nelson

Kinky Friedman and Willie Nelson
Read by Kinky Friedman.
Duration: about 3 hours.

Kinky, feeling like he has to get out of New York City for a change of pace, jumps at the chance to ride with Willie Nelson for part of his tour. However, Willie is not acting like himself and soon one of Willie's roadies is shot. Kinky looks into it and crazy characters from Willie's life spill into Kinky's seriously odd world of friends.

The mystery in Roadkill is not too hard, but it is worth the listen just to hear Friedman's odd twists of phrase. Lots of fun.

An audiobook note: I was disappointed to discover that Willie Nelson did not read his own parts in the book. He has read audiobooks before and this seemed like a natural fit.

I give this one 4 stars out of 5.
