In this installment from the Breakneck Hawk action series, Michael Hawk heads to the land down under to investigate a gruesome murder of an Australian bookie. With veteran narrator Chris Sorenson giving his usual top-level performance, Hawk’s adventure through the Sydney underworld takes on a deeper intensity. With a fearless energy, Hawk sets his sights on the Godfather himself in Dan Streib’s Down Under and Dirty. But as listeners will see, there are a whole host of seedy characters taking aim at him.
Hawk goes down under when an Australian bookie is flung head-first from an exclusive tower restaurant by syndicate hitmen. Hawk aims to take on the Godfather himself, and the gun wielding hoods train their sights on him.
But who’s behind the bold scheme to muscle in on the Sydney underworld? The gutless Tony Santoni, the ill-suited heir to a gangland empire in the States? Or someone with a flair for the dramatic - like the elusive actress who has made Hawk her captive audience? Hawk hurls himself into the blood-spattered world of rub-outs and racketeers to unmask the Mafia don and his murderous Moll.
Michael Hawk is an investigative journalist with a knack for getting the scoop. Part Anderson Cooper, part Indiana Jones, with all of James Bond’s magnetic charm, he saves the day and gets the girl in the end.
