Real Police don’t wear lycra! Or do they?

roll with itNick Place is a former resident of Fairfield and he still lives not too far away from us.  His first novel for adults is a bit of a crime caper featuring policeman Tony Laver, whose shooting of a criminal came at a bad time in the history of Victoria Police.  As a result, he has been shunted out of Major Crime and off into a cycling police patrol. To say that he isn’t happy is something of an understatement. But he dons the lycra and after some time of screaming thigh and sore bum syndrome, he gradually starts to see some value in what he is doing, and is soon solving crime with the best of them.  The setting will be known to locals, as Fairfield, Alphington, High Street and Heidelberg all feature.  It’s a hoot, and I hope there are more  Tony Laver adventures to come. $24.95

As part of our “Meet the author in May” Nick Place will be here in the shop on Saturday May 25th from 11-12.30.  Come along, buy a book, meet Nick and get your book signed.  It should be fun.
