Now pushing fifty, Murray Whelan is spinning his wheels in parliament - a toothless cog in Labor’s stalled political machine. But when the remains of a long-lost union official are found in dried-up Lake Nillahcootie, Murray soon gets sucked into some murky waters. For a start, it seems that his old mate Charlie Talbot was implicated. But Charlie has just dropped dead of a coronary occlusion in the dining room of the Mildura Grand Hotel, leaving behind a lot of unanswered questions. The press are sniffing around and Labor’s enemies are lining up for a free kick. Then there’s the blackmail attempt. And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s an ALP preselection going pear-shaped. Eagerly awaited by his legion of fans, Shane Maloney’s sixth Murray Whelan mystery sees the clown prince of the true believers in vintage form.
