1. The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde

“Acheron Hades has been kidnapping certain characters from works of fiction and holding them to ransom. Jane Eyre is gone. Missing. Thursday sets out to find a way into the book to repair the damage. But solving crimes against literature isn’t easy when you also have to find time to halt the Crimean War, persuade the man you love to marry you, and figure out who really wrote Shakespeare’s plays.”

2. A Case of Lone Star by Kinky Friedman

“The legendary Lone Star Cafe, a little corner of Texas right in the heart of New York City, where every great country music star stops for a gig. At one time or another everyone from the Rolling Stones to Willie Nelson has jammed there. But this night, Thanksgiving eve, there’s a different type of jam at the Lone Star. Larry Barkin, half of the headlining Barkin Brothers, is found dead in his dressing room, his head bashed in with his own guitar and a two dollar bill stuffed in his shirt pocket. It’s Kinky they call for help, but the fast-talking cigar-smoking country singer turned amateur detective has other plans.”

The night of Jake’s funeral, V.C. returns home to find a surprise on his floor: Jake’s freshly murdered, bullet-riddled body. Soon realizing Jake’s double death appears destined to go unsolved, V.C. reluctantly agrees to help private detective Aldous Lewie crack the case.”

4. Pest Control by Bill Fitzhugh

“Bob Dillon can’t get a break. A down-on-his-luck exterminator, all he wants is his own truck with a big fiberglass bug on top — and success with his radical new, environmentally friendly pest-killing technique. So Bob decides to advertise. Unfortunately, one of his flyers falls into the wrong hands. Marcel, a shady Frenchman, needs an assassin to handle a million-dollar hit, and he figures that Bob Dillon is his man.”
