Winner, Ned Kelly Award for Crime Fiction, 1996

When I hear the word culture I think excellence and I think access…

I wasn’t sure where this was going, but at least he wasn’t reaching for his revolver.

Murray Whelan, hero of Stiff, is back at his richly futile best in The Brush-Off.

When the body of an artist is fished from the moat outside the National Gallery, Murray—political minder, brushed-off lover and art buff on the make goes looking for the big picture. If he can put the fix in, he might have a chance of staying employed. The second adventure in Shane Maloney’s series brilliantly mixes high art with low blows.
