    1. I first discovered McGeachin (delightfully read by Peter Hoskings - but then I'm a sucker for the Australian accent) in a book called Fat, Fifty and F**cked. It was a hysterical novel/thriller featuring a one-breasted librarian. (No, I'm not telling.) In this "spy" novel (Alby Murdoch is a spy only in the sense that he's head of the Australian black ops unit,) Alby is called to the harbor one fine summer morning to discover that someone has anchored an LNG tanker in the middle. Now, LNG tankers [...]


    2. Alby Murdoch, (acting) head of D-E-D (Directorate for Extra-territorial Defence), another Australian national security acronym, awakes with a hangover on the Australia Day public holiday. His attractive work partner Julie, who has never responded to his lusty advances, is chastely asleep on his lounge. Alby however, is still hopeful. It's a public holiday and you never know what the day may bring.The last thing Alby needed is for an 80,000 tonne rogue tanker to have covertly snuck into Sydney Ha [...]


    3. A novel set in Australia by an Australian author. 'Sensitive New Age Spy' is a fast paced story which includes the American Navy, the anti-whaling extremists/terrorists, government corruption and Australia's Sensitive New Age Spy.This book is scattered with light one-liners which gave this reader a reason to smile on more than one occasion. If you like to see deep character development in a novel, then 'New Age Spy' is not for you. Thankfully characters are introduced with a minimum of fuss with [...]


    4. I really enjoyed this book. The main character Alby is very funny, likeable and finds himself in some pretty amazing situations of his own doing.I like the way the story was faced paced, made fun of many situations such as Canberra life and the unusual way that Australians have many faceted relationships with others and never take themselves very seriously.This was a terrific read, in fact a book I read in one day because I just wanted to see where Alby's travels took him to and whether or not h [...]


    5. Recomend this as an entertaining light read.Knowing the Sydney area/locale made it even more interesting ; lots of action, well written ;I will be reading another 'Alby Murdoch' photographer spy tale -





    6. Ably Murdoch series #2 not getting much photography done in this fast-paced thriller. Nice to visit Sydney through the eyes of this protagonist. Always an enjoyable read--thanks Geoff.
