Summary
When Billy Glasheen picks up a trashy paperback he finds in his cab, its plot seems weirdly familiar. One of the main characters is based on him . . . Only one person knows enough about his past to have written it—Max, his double-crossing ex-partner in crime. But Max is dead. He famously went up in flames, along with a fortune in cash, after a bank heist. If Max is somehow still alive, Billy has a score to settle. And if he didn't get fried to a crisp, maybe the money didn't either. To find out, Billy has to follow the clues in the strange little book—and rapidly discovers he's not the only one on Max's trail.The Big Whatever is the fourth instalment of Peter Doyle's acclaimed series, which has grown into an epic underground history of postwar Australia, where crooks, entertainers, scammers, corrupt cops and politicians all rub shoulders, chasing their big paydays
