Book Synopsis

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 fame 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.

Dead and Kicking takes us 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, page-turning best.
