Abstract:

The big ask -- Murray Whelan is in trouble. A disastrous election is looming, and his days as advisor to Angelo Agnelli, minister for transport, may be numbered. His son, on loan to his ex-wife, is missing and may be in danger. His ex-fling, Heather, is prowling for his inner prince. And on an icy Melbourne winter morning, he has a rendezvous with a renegade driver in the corrupt truckers union. After that meeting, and a possible run-in with a well-known Italian self-help organization, nothing can save him from another wildly funny, fresh, and fast-paced comic misadventure.

Something fishy -- Now the Hon. Murray Whelan MP. Respectability at last. What's more, Murray has found true love in the person of the salty-tongued Lyndal Luscombe, who has in her possession a highly significant ultrasound photo. There must be a catch, and Murray's about to reel.

Sucked in -- Murray Whelan is pushing fifty. He's also pushing something malodorous uphill as a member of the Labor Party's very small, very ineffectual parliamentary minority. It's a thankless job.
