Product description


‘The business of a novelist is to tell a story. Jon Cleary has that talent in abundance’
Sunday Express

‘Jon Cleary’s writing has lost none of its youth, enthusiasm and ability to fascinate’
Daily Telegraph, Australia

From the Back Cover

As Sydney prepares for its grand role as host of the next Olympic Games, homicide detective Scobie Malone stumbles upon a scam that will do nothing for the city's image. Illicit deals are being struck and money from Hong Kong is being banked in large quantities. But whose money is it, and where is it really from?

A series of cold-blooded assassinations follow, as the ruthless individuals behind the conspiracy seek to eliminate anyone who poses a security risk. Meanwhile Scobie's investigation is frustrated at every turn by a wall of silence as vast as the Great Wall of China, making progress impossible… until he finds the cracks which will lead him to the unexpected truth.

“A first-class, well-written, entertaining thriller”

“When the ruminants and the lucre-chasers are growing lichen on library shelves, Jon Cleary will continue to be read”

'”[Five Ring Circus]' confirms Cleary's ability to mix contemporary Australian issues with fast-paced crime action”
