    This is an adequately amusing detective story, set in Melbourne during WWII The silly and self absorbed protagonist attempts to solve crimes while digging a deeper and deeper hole for himself It s an easy beach read.

    It s so rare to have a selfish, irritating lead character but actor and would be PI William Power is all of that and One does want to slap him But nethertheless, his adventures are always interesting even if not quite believable and the picture of Melbourne during World War II is great.

    The second in the William Power series, and the question to how stupid can one person be is answered even stupid than in the first one Still, an entertaining read.
