Author(s): Matthew Condon
Retirement can be murder! The adventures of a former Sydney detective from 21 Division who, in his prime, collared some of the most murderous criminals in Australian history yet, on retiring to the Gold Coast in Queensland, along with half of the criminal milieu he once pursued, is shot, king-hit, tortured, and thrown from buildings in his relentless pursuit of justice. With his trademark wit, warmth and humour, Matthew Condon takes us on a crazy ride - in boats, kombis, peugeots and window-washing platforms - through art galleries, libraries, swampy islands and caravan parks to illustrate that we are never too old for adventures.
Matthew Condon has published many works of fiction including his critically acclaimed and best-selling The Trout Opera and the occasional non fiction including Brisbane, last year for New South Publishing. He is the editor of Q Magazine and is based in Brisbane.
