Les Norton And The Case Of The Talking Pie Crust by Robert G. Barrett (Signed)

Les Norton is back -- wearing ten-hole Doc Martens...

Warren is back, too –– with his new girlfriend, Beatrice, a part–time coin collector who Les calls 'Ugly Betty'.

Bodine Menjou is an Albanian would–be filmmaker. The film he most wants to make is The Case of the Talking Pie Crust, based on the cartoons of Emile Mercier. So when the script goes missing, Bodine calls in Les to track it down.

Set in Bondi and the Central Coast, this is vintage Les Norton –– giving advice to Bodine on his politically correct film Gone with the Willy Willy (featuring gay Muslims, a Maori suicide bomber and a flagon of Grange Hermitage), dealing with an enraged ice addict who won't stay down, and confronting a shot gun and an exploding building.Not to mention the Mongolian Death Lock ...

Les Norton and The Case of the Talking Pie Crust has all the action, all the humour, and all the surprises that distinguish Robert G. Barrett as the writer The Australian calls 'the king of popular fiction'.
