Not my usual genre - and I did receive a complimentary copy. The author has proved that a 'hero' (protagonist) does not have to be a 'good guy' to capture a reader's attention. The man rollicks through the book, as he tumbles through his life - and surprisingly... survives. The Aussie 'language' he writes in is not something I hear in Western Australia, but is easy to understand. Moving the story along is an art perfected by this author. Well done!
