Editor reviews

Les Norton, Australia’s resident scaliwag, adventurer, drinker, exerciser, unwitting crime solver, and hero of a sprawling series of pulp books by Robert G. Barrett, should be two gin and tonics in and flirting with a beautiful beach bunny...but he’s slipped a disc in his back. So it’s off to the South Coast Blues Festival he goes. What does he find? Trouble. Life-threatening trouble as only Les can find.

Veteran performer Dino Marnika lends the tale some much-needed gravitas with his rather hushed and quite funny baritone. Listeners will be introduced to dancing bears, magic mushrooms, pretty girls, revenge, and all manner of other items from the weekend warrior’s museum of fantasies. This audiobook will keep you company through many commutes to and from the office.

Summary

Australia's favourite larrikin is back - Les Norton is on the road, and rockin'...

Just when everything was going so good, Les slips a disc in his back. He can't run, he can't train. He can't do anything much. But he can still drive his car. So it's down to Narooma for the South Coast Blues Festival and a bit of R&R: 30 bands and three days and nights of non-stop rock 'n' roll. Which would have been great, only Les has to have a slight altercation with four fishermen on his first night in town. Now the toughest, meanest, most horrible bloke on the south coast is after his blood.

Then Les meets Amazing Grace. Add some magic mushrooms, a dancing bear and Jerry Lee Rat. It all makes for an interesting time at the Blues Festival.

Robert G. Barrett's latest Les Norton adventure is set in beautiful Narooma on the New South Wales south coast, and is non-stop action spiced with humour, mystery and romance.
