Matthew Freeman is a voracious reader of crime novels and believes The Rockford Files is the best television show of all time. He has been a journalist, editor, electorate officer and is now a media officer in regional Victoria. Married to Paula, they have three children, Isabelle, Joseph and Gabriel.
A brewery executive has gone missing … or has he? Joseph Lucien Abbott – Joe to his mates – is paid by the man’s wife with a beer-sodden cheque to find out the truth.
In doing so he locks horns with dodgy nightclub owners, a toupeed beer baron, and endless assorted ratbags – and, of course, a wild pig – all in the twisted pursuit of a stash of missing money. Plus he has time for a beer or ten along the way.
