Publisher's Summary

From the author of the hilarious Fat, Fifty & F***ed! and Sensitive New Age Spy, Dead and Kicking takes you racing through the adrenalin-charged streets of Saigon, Hong Kong and Macau, through Darwin and the Top End and into Canberra's corridors of power. It's Geoff McGeachin at his irreverent, absorbing best.When a movie about an Australian war hero takes Alby Murdoch to Vietnam, he discovers that some old soldiers never die, and that it's not just the cameras doing the shooting.A job as stills photographer and some top-notch nosh were two good reasons for Alby Murdock to be in Saigon. The third was that he had to clear out of Sydney and the spy game for a while. But when Alby snaps a photo of the wrong passing cyclo, suddenly more action is taking place off camera than on. Alongside his old flame, the bootylicious Jezebel Quick - and his new friend, the alluring Inspector Hoang - Alby is thrust into the murky, watch-your-back world of casino crime lords, bent politicians, rogue expats, killer fish and ruthless celebrity chefs.


Audible Editor Reviews

Geoffrey McGeachin’s provocative, tantalizingly fun, and action-packed tale of international espionage is expertly realized by the husky Australian twang of narrator Peter Hosking in his portrayal of the gruff, philandering Australian spy Alby Murdoch, who finds himself posing as a photographer on a movie set in Vietnam and becomes embroiled in a sticky web of intrigue involving corrupt politicians, Asian thugs, nefarious celebrity chefs, and even killer fish in this propulsive, edge-of-your seat listen that’s both fun and irreverent.
