Australia’s best-known private investigator might have his licence back, but does he still have what it takes?
Cliff Hardy’s PI licence has been reinstated after a hearing, referral to a committee, then a sub-committee and an accompanying metre-high stack of paperwork. He’s back, in a new office with new clothes and a new case.
Cliff reckons the skills are still there, if a little rusty, and actor Bobby Forrest’s case looks promising. Bobby’s a nice-enough guy, but why is he being stalked by a red-hot brunette?
And why did he have to go online to find a date?
When Bobby is murdered, it comes as a shock. Cliff’s only solid lead is a white Commodore, the most ubiquitous car around. When a surprising connection with his own past surfaces, Cliff is forced to put some of his skills to the test. But is he heading in the wrong direction?
Somehow he has to put it all together without losing his licence again, but in true Hardy fashion he’s managing to find his way into trouble, not out of it.
