#amreading - Harry's World, A.B. Patterson

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Had a bit of a free-range around the Ned Kelly list while waiting for himself to finish one of the true crime entrants we got hold of recently ... which I'm looking forward to reading.

From the Blurb:

PI Harry Kenmare is a prehistoric private detective in an unfriendly modern world.

Harry's World

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

PI Harry Kenmare is a prehistoric private detective in an unfriendly modern world.

His life revolves around drinking, fine food, smoking, and fast women, preferably the ones he has to pay for, in cash. So what better CV for trawling through Sydney's corrupt social and political elites, who cravenly chase power and wealth behind veneers of respectability.

In this collection of seedy episodes, Harry is a dinosaur on a mission of justice, looking to shatter the hypocritical façades. And the rules don't always apply.
