Who killed Devon Kent, a big-mouthed stripper who'd run out of credit? Who dared kidnap the pornographer's son? Why were Sydney's derros afraid for their lives? Where was Precious Ho, nymphomaniac Little Sister of a Chinese drug queen?

It's up to Syd Fish-failed journalist, sacked political minder and fledgling private investigator-to find out. Shaved Fish is a breakneck tour through the Sydney tourists never see. Cynical, street-smart and master of the deadly one-liner, Syd Fish is the most entertaining guide you'll ever meet. If Rachel is to survive, she must unlock her memory and face the fear that she has kept hidden in the darkest recesses of her mind.
