The classic art-world mystery from one of Australia’s most iconic novelists.
Winner, Ned Kelly Award for Crime Fiction, 1996.
Murray Whelan, hero of Stiff, is back at his richly futile best in The Brush-Off. When the body of an artist is fished from the moat outside the National Gallery, Murray - political minder, brushed-off lover and art buff on the make - goes looking for the big picture. If he can put the fix in, he might have a chance of staying employed.
The second adventure in Shane Maloney’s series brilliantly mixes high art with low blows.
