Summary

Claudia Fleischman is beautiful, rich, intelligent, and has just been charged with the murder of her husband. Hardy, hired to look into the background of the case, is soon up to his neck in trouble. When his car is blown up and then a friend is killed, Cliff finds himself with a personal stake in the action. His investigations introduce him to the shadowy world of corporate high flyers at Sydney's exclusive Washington Club and bring him into contact with loose cannon Haitch Henderson and his soft but unpleasant pimp of a son, Noel. In one of his grittiest cases ever, Hardy has to take drastic action before the pieces fall into place and a very rough justice is served.

Another really good book in the Cliff Hardy series

Really enjoyed this one too.Twists and turns in the plot as well as a shock or two. Fantastic narration helps story too. Believable voices, both male and female.

Another in the Clif Hardy series.

This is another in the Clif Walker series, an Australian P.I. In this one, his best friend and lawyer for 20 years, Si, hires him to find out who is trying to frame Claudia Fleischman for her husband’s murder. He finds himself in a good bit of danger in this book, his car blows up, his friend is killed, and the whole thing becomes personal-to find out what actually happened. A good book with the story told laconically and represented very well by Peter Hosking. I gave it a b-plus because it’s somewhat formulaic, but I do like these books and will read more of them.
