The Adventures of Slim Howdy Author:Ronnie Dunn, Kix Brooks, Bill Fitzhugh When they met, it was like a head-on collision, though with a lot less blood and glass and hissing radiator steam. It wasn't the sort of thing one could insure against, probably wasn't the sort of thing you'd want to. Like trying to keep life from happening to you. Somewhere between impossible and a bad idea to begin with. — It a... more »ll starts with a chance meeting on a used car lot in Beaumont, Texas, neither man realizing this is a turning point for both. Before they know it, the two cowboys are sharing a beat-up truck, a life on the road, and a dream of making it in the music business. But Slim and Howdy are the Odd Couple of east Texas--and all points west for that matter. Tall and inscrutable behind his shades, Slim is taciturn, cautious, and keeps everybody at a distance. Howdy's got a wild side about a country mile wide. He talks too much, drives too fast, and lays bets where he shouldn't. Slim's a pragmatist with a taste for fine tequila. Howdy's an idealist, searching for the perfect margarita. So at least they have that in common.
But before they can hit the road in search of fame and fortune, Slim's got some unseemly business to take care of involving a stolen guitar. A shot is fired. A major appliance is wounded. The cops are called. Toss into the fray a couple of gals short on scruples and long on rap sheets--and that's when the fun begins. The fates take them across Texas, drawing trouble like a magnet every step of the way. From a shootout to a crooked back-room poker game, Slim and Howdy move through the pages like a dangerous pair of cowboy gangsters, guitar cases in hand.
And when an old friend gets kidnapped, the two have no choice but to set aside their differences and join forces. Faced with a dangerous list of suspects, from a deranged reptile retailer to Mexican narco-terrorists. Slim and Howdy wade into the fires of adversity, only to emerge as unlikely friends.
