Publisher's Summary

From the moment Alby drops his gun on a St Kilda tram he knows he's in for a bad day. Then his partner Harry is gunned down in a Double Bay coffee shop. By lunchtime Alby realizes someone wants him dead - and they want him dead now. All Alby wants is some pasta, a good bottle of wine and to know more about the mysterious Grace Goodluck: long dark hair, legs up to there, and piercing slate-grey eyes. But he also has to figure out who shot Harry and who wants him dead, and why. Unfortunately for Alby, the answer lies over the razor wire and past the anti-personnel mines protecting Bitter Springs, a top-secret US military facility deep in the central Australian desert. Now that can really ruin your day.


Audible Editor Reviews

Alby Murdoch wishes he was "parked on a cane chair" in Bali, surveying beauty with a gin-and-tonic in his hand. Listeners will be glad he’s not. During a breezy, action-packed, comic thriller that comes in at just under six hours, performer Peter Hosking treats listeners to a crisp, smiling Australian accent and a spy novel that scintillates with images ready for the movies.
In D-E-D Dead, Murdoch’s partner is gunned down, Murdoch is tripped up by razor wires and buried mines, and finally presented with a formidable challenge by the U.S. military itself. On top of it all, an irresistible femme fatale named Grace Goodluck promises anything but good luck.
