ALL THIS MAN NEEDS IS A GOOD BOOK.


There are a few people who have a nose for trouble. The Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot is one. I am another. There are also certain places that attract people with murder on their mind, such as Marrakesh and Casablanca, where Signor Ferrari, owner of the Blue Parrot bar & café, gave Humphry Bogart such a hard time. Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day also had their troubles but as Doris so eloquently warbled “Que Sera Sera” (Whatever will Be, Will be).

I am delighted to be able to feature another fictitious version of the Blue Parrot in my latest novel “Be Dead and be Damned.” There are a number of restaurants with this name around the world that actually serve food but I’m serving up murder, mayhem and malicious intent. And it all happens in my home town of Melbourne, Australia.

There is every chance they will make a movie of this exciting whodunit, so be the first in your street to obtain a copy. They may have to change the title to “Baba Ganoush” to appease the Middle Eastern community.
ALL THIS MAN NEEDS IS A GOOD BOOK.
