Book Synopsis

Blurb from the Book

Sydney, 1961: Jockey McAuley is just looking for a little direction in life.  On a fast track from high school to the old school, he stumbles into the notorious Phoenix affair, a netherworld of shady deals, half truths and men with more sides than a cut diamond.

And then there's Ludo.  Glamorous, unattainable Ludo, playing everyone by her own rules.  The game changes fast, and a wink and a nod can get a capable young man anything from a gun in the face to a fortune in his kick.

With sharp dialogue, vivid characters and shocking intrigue, Ludo tips its hat to classic crime noir as it brings to life the seedy world of Sydney in the 1960s
