First paragraph:

"I should have known it was going to be a lousy week when I dropped my gun in the tram on the way to the office.  I guess I was a bit tired and edgy and concerned about being away from the action for so long.  You miss being in the thick of things for the first few weeks and then you start wondering if you really miss it at all.  Maybe I was getting too old for this spying lurk.  What I really truly wanted was to be parked in a cane chair on a mountaintop somewhere in Bali, sipping a G and T and luxuriating in the serenity of a tropical paradise, instead of sitting like a gig on a Melbourne tram with my gun on the floor."

In D-E-D DEAD!, Geoffrey McGeachin's riotous adventure thriller, Alby Murdoch – international photographer and Australian special agent – ducks bullets and bombs from Bondi to Bali and back  as he attempts to unravel a a lethal web of high-level dodgy dealings...

From the moment Alby drops his gun on a St Kilda tram he knows he’s in for a bad day. Then his partner Harry is gunned down in a Double Bay coffee shop. By lunchtime Alby realises someone wants him dead - and they want him dead now. All Alby wants is some pasta, a good bottle of wine and to know more about the mysterious Grace Goodluck -- long dark hair, legs up to there, and piercing slate-grey eyes … sniper’s eyes. But he also has to figure out who shot Harry and who wants him dead. And why. Unfortunately for Alby, the answer lies over the razor wire and past the anti-personnel mines protecting Bitter Springs, a top-secret US military facility deep in the central Australian desert. Now that can really ruin your day...
