Another great Aussie laugh.

Les Norton, for American readers, is like someone out of a Carl Hiassen book, Australian-style. There's a fistfight or a sex scene on every third page, and in between this big ocker (think Paul Hogan times eleven) is flexing his muscles in front of the mirror, drinking cases of beer and bottles of wine a night, or working off the hangover by running miles and doing hundreds of pushups. He's a cartoon, and a funny one. However: the casual racism in this book, including numerous n-words, and endless jokes about poofs and what they might take up the ring (backside), is EXTREMELY TIRESOME. And the plot is too ridiculous for words: meatheads fistfighting in front of nightclubs is one thing, but Muslim terrorists, crates of super-weapons "that even our blokes don't have", and (yes, really) a shoulder-fired "low-level" nuclear weapon exploding in the sky over the outback? Gimme a break. The unreality, and the completely unnecessary racist BS, make this book, and most of Barrett's efforts, a real turnoff. Fun if you're white and have a low standard for fun, I guess. I really wanted this to be better.

I didn't think I'd like this book as it is really far out of my genre, but I did enjoy it. I had been told that Australian detective stories were quite different, but worth pursuing. This one was. I understand that this falls somewhere in a series, and I had not met the Norton boys yet, but oh boy! they are something else! There's lots of Australian trivia, and lots of action, as well as blood and guts, but even with all that, the book was hilariously funny! Les Norton is the epitome of laconic, and his brother Murray is a one-man wrecking team. This book deals with diamond smuggling, dirty deeds, and a whole ton of people that live on the wrong side of the law (including Les Norton himself). Good fun.
