About this product
- DescriptionSydney, 1957. Billy Glasheen is trying to make a living, whether running a gambling scam, shifting stolen jewels, or greasing the wheels during a hair-raising tour by Little Richard and his rock 'n' roll entourage. But Billy's schemes always cross with the plans of the city's big players, an unholy trinity of crooks, bent cops and politicians on the make. Now he's in the frame for murder and on the run from the cops, who'll happily send him down for it. Billy's sleuth, but there's where to turn for help. To prove it wasn't him, he'll have to find the real killer.
