Book launch: The Long Con (Barry Weston)

Cover image, The Long Con

The Hobart Bookshop, 22 Salamanca Square, 5.30pm, Wednesday June 1st

Join us for the launch, by Andrew Nicholson, of Barry Weston's book, The Long Con.

Frank Cousins is a knockabout bloke; an ex-Queensland cop turned private eye who - it has to be said - is his own worst enemy. Owner and sole employee of the Tasmanian Private Investigation Agency in Hobart, Frank takes on three simple cases and soon find himself up to his neck in bad guys, bad situations and, as usual, bad behaviour. Money-for-jam, these three cases: find a missing woman, get the dirt on a philandering state politician, and provide personal protection for a wealthy, elderly matriarch - figurehead of Tasmanian environmental group. What could possibly go wrong? Well, as Frank's dear old departed Mum always said: 'nothing in life is what it first appears to be'.

The Long Con is the first book in the Tasmanian Private Investigation Agency series.

Free event, all welcome.
