Book Synopsis

Blurb from the Book

Amaze Your Friends is a wild and funny trip through the underside of Sydney at the turn of a decade - a world of bodgies and beatniks, reefer smoking and pill popping. It's Sydney 1959 and Billy, lurk merchant and low life, can't take a trick.

The past has caught up with him as Sydney's meanest, crookedest cop wants ten thousand pounds to keep the peace.

Billy is given a simple choice - pay up in six months or take an early retirement, six feet down, looking at the sky. Should he run? Should he hide? Or sneak down to Chinatown for another pipe?
