I heard about this book on the ABC radio programme, Books and Arts Daily. You can download the audio of the interview at the website. I found the book at the Metung Book Fair for just a couple of dollars. Bargain!
The adventures of a former Sydney detective from 21 Division who, in his prime, collared some of the most murderous criminals in Australian history yet, on retiring to the Gold Coast in Queensland, along with half of the criminal milieu he once pursued, is shot, king-hit, tortured, and thrown from buildings in his relentless pursuit of justice.
With his trademark wit, warmth and humour, Matthew Condon takes us on a crazy ride – in boats, kombis, peugeots and window-washing platforms – through art galleries, libraries, swampy islands and caravan parks to illustrate that we are never too old for adventures.
I have just finished the first of these short stories and enjoyed it. Quite quirky in the story telling, with lots of humour, a good light read. Ideal for when you just want to dip into a book for a short read.
