Greenwich Killing Time marked the debut of the Kinkster, the wise-cracking, cigar-smoking, cat-loving sleuth. The scene of the crime is Greenwich Village. The corpse is found holding eleven pink roses - and the suspects are as strange as the crime. A wild and witty journey into the dark heart of Manhattan, this novel remains the perfect introduction to America's most outrageous singer-songwriter turned gumshoe detective.… (more)

There's not much of a plot to "Greenwich Killing Time", just lots of one liners and observations on life by Kinky Friedman, otherwise most famous for his evergreen children's song "Old Ben Lucas". If you've read any of Kinky's books you'll know how this one will turn out. ( )

One of his earlier works. Good, but maybe not so good as his later stuff. Almost gets a little preachy on the whole cocaine angle. Not as wise-ass as his others either. But still fun. ( )

I enjoyed this but it's not a book I'd read again and I think it's a book that you have to be in the mood for. A mystery set in New York's Greenwich Village the characters are quirky and there many references to drugs, alcohol and homosexuality. In terms of the later the book is a bit dated, written in 1986. The mystery is good though as is the writing. ( )

Kinda cute, kinda funky--writing about "yourself" as a non-detective in a mystery story (or series). I figured the murdered about two-thirds through, but followed the story to the end. ( )
