AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Cliff Hardy is no financial genius. But in Taking Care of Business he pursues white-collar crime with the same doggedness he applies to his more downmarket villains.

Hardy's tasks are many and his clients are from all walks of life. He is minder for Thomas Whitney, the highly strung whistleblower, whose company is siphoning money off through Vanuatu. He is hired by computer genius Charles Marriott, whose shady dot com partner wants the control of the business and is letting nothing and no one get in his way. And ever keen for some spare cash, he even takes a case from Spiro, his local florist, whose son seems to be involved in some very dodgy business involving tobacco and big bucks.

'This collection of stories featuring Australia's favourite PI is fast-paced and entertaining. It reads in the best Corris style.' (Publication summary)
