Between the Devlin and the Deep Blue S/Barrett, Rober/Paper/0330272306/S033-A
Okay, so it looks like the Kelly Club is finally closing down - it had to happen sooner or later. And it isn't as if Les Norton will starve. He has money snookered away, he owns his house, and his blue-chip investment - a block of flats in Randwick - must be worth a fortune by now. Except that the place is falling down, the council is reclaiming the land, there's been a murder in Flat 5, and the tenants are the biggest bunch of misfits since the Manson Family. And that's just the good news, because the longer Les owns the Blue Seas Apartments, the more money he loses.
This time Les Norton is really up against it. But whilst he's trying to solve his financial problems, he still has time to fight hate-crazed roadies, sort out a drug deal after fighting a gang of bikies, help a feminist Balmain writer with some research she won't forget in a hurry, and get involved with Franulka, super-sexy lead singer of an all-girl rock band, The Heathen Harlots.
And with the help of two ex-Romanian Securitate explosive experts, he might even be able to sort out his investment. But can Les pull off the perfect crime? Of course - and why not throw the street party of the year at the same time?
Robert G. Barrett's latest Les Norton novel is probably no more outrageous than his previous ones.
But then againà
