A pacy American crime novel about the disappearance of an autistic boy and a three legged cat, starring animal-loving private investigator, Kinky Friedman. The author chats to his readers very personally, with his tongue firmly in his cheek, making them feel part of the story.
'Anyway, the bad news is that last night Lucky, the three legged cat, disappeared. Lucky was one of the first animals to ever live at the Rescue Ranch. He stays with Nancy, her husband, Tony, and ten dogs in a double-wide trailer, and he never goes outside except briefly to sun himself on the front porch.'
