Overview
MORE DIRTY WORK Det. Pete Young, at 23 still the youngest detective in South Australian police history, faces his biggest challenge to date. He's about to cop what every dick worth his salt needs - an Arch Nemesis – namely, Chad Oldman - social security recipient, reality TV addict, and cover-band member. He's going to prove to be a tough nut to crack. On the side - a bunch of anonymous texters put the squeeze on a comely continental celebrity chef while a covert surveillance team member cooks up a cool recipe for blackmail. There's MORE DIRTY WORK than ever and as usual - that's just the humans. The hard-boiling continues.

About the author
Detective-Sergeant Eddie Martin, nursing a cappuccino, is getting the lowdown on this Brett Sody character from the squad's number one; Detective Pete Young, who's nursing an organic chai latte with almond milk, extra turmeric and extra ginger. As usual, the lad's been thorough. He takes a big sip of the chai and gets his notebook out. DS: 'So, Pete. This Brett Sody, what's the story with him? What'd you find out?' DP: 'Righto; B.S. was born in St. Kilda, Melbourne, 1958. Family moved to Adelaide when he was 14. Been there ever since' DS: 'Got a record?'

DP: 'Dirty Work, More Dirty Work, and Dirty Work Revisited' DS: 'I know I'll regret asking, but what are they about, Pete?' DP: 'Shall I read you his spiel?' DS: 'Go on, humour me' DP: 'An on-going satire about the struggle to get by, whatever you might be' DS: 'Spare me. Spoofs, are they?' DP: 'Sort of. He's working on his next opus as we speak. Dead-set keen he is' DS: 'What's he calling that one?' DP: 'Revista. Apparently, a collection of short stories' DS: 'Naturally. So, Pete, what's your take on this Brett Sody bloke?' DP: 'I say we leave him alone for a bit, see how it pans out. DS: 'Good plan, Pete. He got a website?' DP: www.brettsody.com
