About the Book

When Aussie ex-cricketer and ex-showerer Ashley "Curly" Gibson gets the call from Cricket Australia, it's not to parachute him into the Test team, it's to babysit them while they take on England on the Ashes tour of 2013. They need him to keep the big names out of the papers, clear of strip joints and free of more fisticuffs with opposition players. His PI career being what it is, a bit of all-expenses-paid chaperone work sounds like easy money until an Indian betting syndicate also makes him an offer he can't refuse: help fix some matches or get the mother of all smallpox booster shots. Throw in a sex-crazed physiotherapist, Mickey Arthur's pending lawsuit, a drugs investigation headed by Curly's best friend and an American ex-cop with a penchant for the macabre and you've got the kind of tour you can't get on a London bus.

About the Author

Jason Davis was born in Adelaide, Australia in 1971 and has continued his good form ever since. After escaping Mullumbimby High School in 1988 during particularly rowdy Australia's bicentennial celebrations, Jason spent five years in the Royal Australian Air Force before scouring the country for a career that centred on the judicious use of fart jokes. He found it at Australian Mad magazine, which led to non- flatulence-related writing and editing at magazines and newspapers including the Qantas inflight magazine, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Sun-Herald and The Courier-Mail. Jason lives in Brisbane with his family and tries to keep out of harm’s way.
