WHEN TWO AMERICAN GANGSTERS visit barrister William Clarin in Hobart in 1974, they think he's called The Magician because he can make charges go away. This sets off a comedic escape to a mysterious island off the New South Wales coast. NOVEL #1. THE WRONG MAGICIAN The truth is he's only got that nickname because his hobby involves making rabbits vanish! When things go from bad to worse, the barrister has to leg it, and everything that can go wrong, does go wrong, usually in the most humorous way. He finds himself out-gunned, out-muscled and out-ranked on the high seas. He really has to pull something special out of his hat this time. Novel #2. ACCIDENTAL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS When a strange helicopter starts buzzing the shearing shed where he is housing 12 illegal immigrants, Major Jeremy Billycock-Smythe jumps to conclusions. Nothing new about that for this misogynistic, racist and clueless Englishman! If Major B.S. didn't jump to wrong conclusions, he would never have accidentally brought the illegal immigrants into the country in the first place. We all know someone like Major B.S.. He's a social climber, he's supremely confident and he'd rather be off making money than baby-sitting the illegal aliens. But the government just doesn't let you forget. If you asked Major BS, they really ought to be paying any attention to his suspicious neighbour, damn it! See the major get his comeuppance while the man he bullies and belittles emerges as the real hero of the novel. Novel #3. DADDY'S GREAT ESCAPE What starts out as a relaxing day for a father-to-be ends badly when he is chased into the bay by an angry mob. Ralph has to get home for the birth of his daughter in this dark comedy. When he is rescued by a trawler, it doesn't seem like it's going to be a problem — but when the captain refuses to turn around because he is headed for open sea on an extended fishing trip, his anxiety rises. His mental health doesn't improve when he ends up on an island ruled by a gun-toting old man who was once a lawyer on the run.
