  • Hiding in Plain Sight

    For some reason there is a sense of nostalgia for 1974 brewing in the universe. Coincidentally, this is the second book in a row that I've read, set in that year. You are warned at the beginning that the spelling is English and the language Australian--and there were one or two slang words whose meaning I had to guess from context--but the lunacy and improbabilities just keep piling up regardless of dialect (did I mention the cast includes Americans and Italians as well as assorted others?). Feels more like Three Stooges than Benny Hill, but there is a definite slapstick element to the broad humor. And a TOTAL SURPRISE ENDING. 'Nuff said.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Down-under farce outside of the rabbit fence

    William Clarin is in a lot of trouble. He hasn’t paid his elderly secretary, Miss Jones, for ages. Career convict, Wacko Jacko, thinks (incorrectly) William has impregnated his 16-year-old daughter, Rita. William’s wife believes (also incorrectly) that he is having an affair with young Rita and has thrown him out. And mobsters are ‘upset’ that he has not used his lawyerly skills to magic away perfectly valid charges laid against their boss. Hobart is looking decidedly dangerous for William, and he sees the only means of escape to be getting a job on the cruise ship, Bounty, that is due to leave Hobart that evening, for the warmer, safer climes of Cairns. On board the ship, William acquires another enemy – the ship’s captain, Christopher Rose – who has reluctantly employed him as an ‘entertainer’. As he cannot sing, but does have a top hat, cloak, 3 rabbits and some rusty magic skills, William joins the crew as a magician. His hopes of an easy ride to freedom are scuppered, when William discovers – after the ship has left Hobart – that everyone who wishes him harm (except his wife) is also on board, and staying hidden is not really an option. Flopsy, Mopsy and Peter Rabbit escape their cage, and in his hunt for his charges, William discovers a veritable infestation of rabbits on board the Bounty – none of them his. Cue madcap antics of farcical proportions with rabbits proliferating faster than a Fibonacci series. The ending is quite unexpected – and sets things up nicely for the sequels. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book at no cost from the author in exchange for an honest review
