Publisher's Summary

When beautiful young women kiss you on the cheek you know you're over the hill, but I didn't really feel like that. As Wesley said, "I still had the moves."
Cliff Hardy may still have the moves but he's in trouble. The economy's tanking and he's been conned by an unscrupulous financial advisor and lost everything he's got. Cliff only knows one way, and that's forward, so he's following the money trail. It's a twisted road that leads him down deep into Sydney's underbelly, into the territory of big money, bent deals, big yachts, and bad people. Cliff's in greater danger than ever before, but he's as tenacious as a dog with a bone.

"Once again Corris has captured both the zeitgeist and the rhythm of what long-defunct inner-west rock band the Stotting Tommie's once described as 'the city of emeralds and dust'." (Sydney Morning Herald)

Wrong Narrator

After listening to Peter Hosking brilliantly narrate previous Cliff Hardy novels, Dino Marnika is a big disappointment. Lilting and slightly breathy, the narration doesn't suit the narrative and character at all. I would strongly recommend the earlier Cliff Hardy novels where Hosking brings the goods every time.

The narrator doesn't fit the character

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Having listened to the Cliff Hardy series since forever I've experienced Cliff through the wonderful narration of Peter Hosking. Hosking and Hardy are one in the same. Dino Marnika simply does not sound like a tough, street-smart, cynical Aussie maverick. If you have NOT heard Peter Hosking in the earlier books I suggest you don't and let Dino become Cliff for you.

Would you be willing to try another one of Dino Marnika’s performances?

Not as Cliff Hardy although I have bought 3 titles with Dino as narrator.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story is classic Cliff Hardy. So I stayed to the end despite being annoyed/frustrated with the narration.
