The fiddle at the Pacific Pastoral meat-packing works was a nice little earner for all concerned until Herb Gardiner reported finding a body in Number 3 chiller. An accident of course, but just the excuse a devious political operator might grab to stir up trouble with the unions.

Enter Murray Whelan, minder, fixer and general dogsbody for the Minister for Industry. Between playing off party factions and pursuing the kohl-eyed Ayisha, it's all in a days' work for Murray to hose down the situation at Pacific Patoral.

Then the aqua Falcon turns up. And after that, it gets personal. Because don't you just hate it when somebody tries to kill you and you don't know who or why?

I've never read an Australian crime novel before. Come to think of it, I'm not sure I've ever read an Australian novel before. About time, eh?

RELEASE NOTES:

This was a quick read, and the basic plot is good, but I found the setting a bit, uhm, clicheed. Especially the near-divorce, down-at-heel characteristics of the hero made me feel that I've read it all before, which is a pity. I also missed a bit more local colour, there wasn't much here to suggest the setting to be Australia rather than Britain or the States. Still, entertaining, and - as I said - a quick read.

Left in the OBCZ cupboard.
