Book Description

13 Jun 2013 Text Classics
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 the 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 of Industry. Between playing off party factions and pursuing the kohl-eyed Ayisha, it's all in a day's work for Murray to hose down the situation at Pacific Pastoral.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crime with a political under-text! 9 April 2013
By Hewy - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a winner for me. Many of the characters are recognisable - either as 'types' or the real-thing from 20-30 years ago. Down at heel settings in Melbourne's working class suburbs well described, but it was the humour - the deep belly-laugh humour. You can trust a Melbourne Leftie to come up with some of the best one-liners you will ever read. Really. This book evokes a time and place - now gone - where political crooks dined at the Windsor - and long before political 'spin' was part of the game. Idealogically splendid.
