The "fourth raucous adventure" of the Murray Whelan Mystery from the author of Nice Try features "the charming and reckless Australian political adviser" (Publishers Weekly). Murray Whelan is in trouble. A disastrous election is looming, and his days as advisor to Angelo Agnelli, minister for transport, may be numbered. His son, on loan to his ex-wife, is missing and may be in danger. His ex-fling, Heather, is prowling for his inner prince. And on an icy Melbourne winter morning, he has a rendezvous with a renegade driver in the corrupt truckers union. After that meeting, and a possible run-in with a well-known Italian self-help organization, nothing can save him from another wildly funny, fresh, and fast-paced comic misadventure. "Maloney just gets better, and Murray Whelan remains one of the most reliable and rewarding sleuths in the business." -Ian Rankin, New York Times-bestselling author "Murray is a great creation . . . Takes the wisecracking wise guy into a whole new realm." -Houston Chronicle "Bubbles with wise-guy wit, macho machinations, and testosterone tactics . . . The wit is sharp and on target." -Providence Journal "Full of laugh-out-loud humor." -Marie Claire "The political intrigues of a South Australian city may not seem the stuff of high drama, but they are-and Whelan's a delight." -Seattle Times/Post-Intelligencer
