Summary

Les Norton, a big red-headed country boy from Queensland, has just arrived in the big smoke and is set to make his mark. Working as a bouncer at an illegal casino in the Cross, Les encounters a number of fascinating characters who make up the seamier side of one of the most exciting cities in the world – gamblers, conmen, bookies, bouncers, hookers, and hit men, who ply their respective trades from the golden sands of Bondi to the tainted gutters of Kings Cross... usually on the wrong side of the law.

Any additional comments?

I am 3/4 through this book and still have not discovered a plot. No plot so the author has les beating people up , including Karate champions. Getting seduced by beautiful women. And letting his brothers dog kill and eat another dog. Oh and his brother eats a little also. I've read other les norton books and found them entertaining. But after this crap I won't be reading anymore. A refund is due me and any other person who bought this trash
