The Godson | [Robert G. Barrett]

The Godson

Les thought that playing minder to Peregrine Normanhurst III sounded like a dead-set snack: Les would keep Peregrine out of trouble. So what if he was on the run from the IRA? They’d never follow him to Australia… But Les quickly finds himself thrust into an adventure that moves at breakneck speed from the corridors of power in Canberra to the grimy tenements of Belfast, to climax in a nerve-shattering, blood-spattered shoot out on a survivalist fortress in the Tweed Valley.

    Middle aged; long University course (science based), and long service as a professional. Cynical and very interested in the real world.

    Story
    "Humour from Downunder"

    Australia's most popular and entertaining story teller.

    Don't look for deep and meaningful philosophical content with Robert Barrett, just vintage enjoyment Basically, the formula is 3 great sex scenes plus 3 great fight scenes set in a recognizable Oz landscape; with a story line connecting the dots.

    Robert Barrett has a turn of phrase that makes me laugh out loud, which is actually a rare event. Thus, his new books always went to the very top of my reading pile, and the audios are right up there aswell.

    Unfortunately he passed away but his writing hasn't...
