The third book in the Peter Clancy series sees him in London, working for one of the "red-top" gossip newspapers and getting his love life all out of control. Not sure why these books aren't getting more attention - it's a great series.

From the Blurb:

Australian journo Peter Clancy is in London this time, working for a notorious scandal sheet. While writing salacious stories on celebrities, Clancy poses as a biographer to dig the dirt on drug- and alcohol-raddled Olivia Michaels, once a star of the screen.

Have to admit that the references right at the start to the Truth Newspaper had me smiling.

From the Blurb:

It is Melbourne 1989. While investigating organised crime, Peter Clancy is caught up in a sinister plot involving drug importation, police corruption, and some very kinky sex.

Along the way, Peter meets a young lawyer and is instantly besotted with her—unlike his friends and colleagues who see something disturbing beneath her wholesome exterior.
