Publisher's Summary

Moving into his old flame Susie's flat in Bondi should have been a piece of cake for Les Norton - except that Price and Eddie had other ideas.

There were two bodies buried under the handball courts at the Bondi baths. The man to get them out? Major Garrick Lewis, aka, The Gecko. With Norton for company, The Gecko literally took Bondi, and everything that went with it, in stride - Mossad hit squads, the KGB, ASIO, yobbo builders and loose women looking for action. And for once, Les is flat out keeping up.

Not the best Les Norton book....

I've loved Les Norton and his adventures for years, but this one left me flat. It was... Dull. Shame, really. The narration was fine but the book isn't up to the standards of the others.
