Out of print for nearly a decade and never before available in electronic format, Frequent Flyer is the fourth of Kinky Friedman's internationally acclaimed mystery novels, republished with a new introduction by the author.

"His irreverent, bawdy and often outrageous adventures are like no others." (San Diego Union-Tribune)

"A surefire cure for the blues." (New York Times)

"Kinky Friedman is a hip hybrid of Groucho Marx and Sam Spade." (Chicago Tribune)

"How is this mystery writer different from all other mystery writers? We don't read him to find out what happens next, we tread him to find out how far he will far he will go." (The Washington Post)

"Dear Kinky, I have now read all of your books. More, please. I really need the laughs!" (former President Bill Clinton)

"A true Texas legend." (former President George Bush)

From the Author's Introduction: "By the time I was finishing Frequent Flyer, the fourth book in the series, it was 1988 and I’d been living at our family ranch in Texas for three or four years. All the while, my vision of New York had been growing more and more vivid in my mind. Indeed, it was almost like living in New York without having to worry about parking. It seemed that the further that I got away from the city, and the more serene and bucolic my environment, the more powerful New York became in my imagination. I’m particularly pleased that Vandam Press has selected this book to be reprinted as part of its new Masters of Crime series. ..."

    One of his best

    Of all of Kinky's books, Frequent Flyer is the one that, hands down, provides Kinky's recurrent characters / friends with the best plot lines. The plot itself is topnotch also, which is probably why this novel is the only one of Kinky's books that was ever serialized in a major mag. (Playboy.) BTW, I've learned that in real life Mike McGovern is a journalist, Steven Rambam really is a PI and a Nazi hunter and Ratso really is...a Ratso.
