They don't call him Lucky Les for nothing. A ticket in a raffle and Norton was off to the US of A, where it turned out hot, red hot, and it wasn't just the weather. Night club brawls, mafia hitmen, and too many girls called Lori, all in a sea of margaritas. Even for Les Norton, it was just too hot to handle. So it was off to the Caribbean, where Millwood Downie - schoolteacher, historian, and would-be stand-up comic - helps Les trace his family tree and possibly uncover the biggest earn ever.

Love this author and narrator. Just a romping good story. It is very funny in an unique Australian way. I am not sure that non Australians will understand the book
yes les norton is a laugh he get's into allsort's of strife
fat fifty and f###d funny tale of drama after drama for les
les norton the redheaded queensland bloke fully of character and a complete wombat at times
places make you laugh with the stupidity of some of the character's
I loved this book, it kept me laughing the whole way through!! I laughed so hard I cried at times. I recommend this book to everyone (adults that is). It was a wonderful book and would love to see more like it.
I usually like the Les Norton books but this one just waffled on too much.The narrator lost interest at times. The story could have been written and told in half the time - far to much padding Mr Barret.
I guess we all have a bad one occassionally and this is the Les Norton bad one. Recommend any of Les' other adventures though.
