By Shane Maloney
When Murray Whelan, lovelorn political minder and part-time health enthusiast, is recruited to therapeutic massage Australia's bid for the Olympics he has no thought how difficult the going will get.
Not even the sight of the attractive Holly Deloite in her taut blue leotard on the urban membership can cease him diving head first into difficulty. And, while the demise of the younger Aboriginal athlete Darcy Anderson proves that homicide is a touch game, Murray is quickly breaking the entire rules.
Mixing it with a savvy black activist, a body-building psychopath and the enigmatic Dr Phillipa Knox, Murray jumps the gun each time.
'One of the main outrageously humorous voices in smooth detective fiction...Shane Maloney's prose is greater than a 'nice attempt' at combining social and political satire with the conventions of the crime novel. it really is spot on.' Age
