Book Synopsis

Transvestite president of the Sex Workers' Union and community activist, Paula Prince, is determined to save Surrey Street, Darlinghurst. Lorraine Lamont wants to develop it; Chicka Chandler won't leave it.

When Paula hires local PI Syd Fish to bodyguard Chicka, it looks like a straight-forward stakeout. It isn't. Dogfish enmeshes Syd Fish in a web of murder, corruption and political intrigue involving the gay community, the inner-city criminal milieu, and local and state politicians.

You'll meet gay scene-stealers, aldermen on the make, shady business types, politicians with hidden agendas, and Syd's new love interest, Julia Western. You'll also run into old friends such as journalist Lizzie Darcy, Father Declan Doherty, the Gold Coast's own Andrew ('the Greek') Kotsopoulos, and Luther Huck, Kings Cross bouncer and famous 'fat man with a grudge'-all from Shaved Fish.

Outrageously frank and hilariously funny, Dogfish puts local government in the dock and wins a resounding conviction.
