While the body of a disgruntled artist is being fished out of the public art gallery's ornamental moat Murray Whelan is in the undergrowth having a romantic encounter with the delicious Salina Fleet. Whelan, political spin doctor and artless lover, goes in search of the big picture - to ensure there'll be no fallout for his boss, but in the process stumbles upon a scam to swindle the taxpayer, a forgery racket and a trio of beautiful women. As he's drawn ever deeper into a horribly tangled web, his childhood nemesis lurks menacingly on the edge of the action and the body count keeps on rising . . .

Reviews

Read it - then pester your friends to read it. * * Big Issue * * Shane Maloney writes like an angel, always in control of his plot and pace. Not that many readers will notice this: they'll be too busy laughing. * * Ian Rankin * * Murray is a great creation, one that takes the wisecracking wise guy into a whole new realm. * * Houston Chronicle * * I look forward to the next Murray Whelan novel with the same anticipation of pleasure that I feel for the new Carl Hiaasen or Elmore Leonard. * * Sydney Morning Herald * *
